Question Sigil Flatpak and Java

Has anyone using Sigil on Linux via Flatpak gotten epubcheck to work? Right now it seems to fail because Java is not visible to the sandboxed Sigil installation.

Since Sigil doesn't need Java, you'll probably have to modify the Sigil Flatpak manifest using the instructions on this website.

How does Sigil Flatpak run plugins (assuming you're talking about the epubcheck plugin)? Does it use its own sandboxed python or the system python?

In use Sigil on Linux in Flatpak but I use epubcheck in the terminal and that works great. Just install epubcheck via your package manager.

Yes and no. I managed to get the BibiReader and EpubJSReader plugins working fine in a Linux Flatpak, but not the ReadiumReader. I can't say as I miss epubcheck as it works really well in the terminal.

Actually I see Sigil 1.9.10 is now available in my depository without need of using a Flatpak. It wasn't before.

Building Sigil from source is relatively easy thanks to DiapDealer's fool-proof instructions.

Thankfully someone else seems to have recently done it for my distro. Far too complex otherwise.

I suggest building from source and getting rid of Flatpak. That would solve your plugins problem.

I repost on this thread in case anyone else has flatpak problems -

At the end of November, 2022, before getting too involved in making my own build - although I did look at DiapDealer's remarkably clear instructions - I made a visit to the Sigil flatpak's github site.

I posted an 'issue' about the matter of difficulty for the plugin to get in touch with java. I also mentioned ODTimport which also needs java.

Overnight, this issue has been taken into account with an update pushed. The Readme has also been updated to state :

Quote:
For plugins that need java runtime

flatpak install flathub org.freedesktop.Sdk.Extension.openjdk17//22.08
I used that line of code to install openjdk17 and installed the updated flatpak version of Sigil 1.9.20. I tested this satisfactorily with my epub file and EpubCheck.
