Sorry for the late reaction. It's holiday season in the Netherlands and
I've been enjoying mine. Marked your mail for follow-up, but completely
forgot about it after that. Here's your answer finally.

So, does that mean when I do:
git clone https://github.com/ledgersmb/LedgerSMB.git
it should be within the directory produced when I do:
git clone https://github.com/ledgersmb/ledgersmb-dev-docker.git
In private emails, Erik Huelsmann was kind enough to find a solution:
$ git clone https://github.com/ledgersmb/LedgerSMB.git
$ git clone https://github.com/ledgersmb/ledgersmb-dev-docker.git
$ cd LedgerSMB
$ ../ledgersmb-dev-docker/lsmb-dev master up -d
However, that failed because my lsmb-dev calls docker-compose and
the docker-compose I'd installed with synaptic wasn't compatible with
the ledgersmb-dev-docker/docker-compose.yml file which I'd just cloned.
So, downloaded the latest docker-compose as instructed here:
and tried again. This time it seemed to work because there was a *lot*
of downloads and no error msgs and shown in the attached.
Hat's off to Eric!
Unfortunately, the odyssey doesn't end there.
As suggested by the output on attachement, put url:
in my firefox browser. This produce a window with a nice
LedgerSMB graphic, but with the text (centered):
If this text is showing, there's most likely
a problem with
The text got wrapped. It should have read "... a problem with your
installed Dojo setup"
searching for this text in source, found it in:
style="display: block; margin: auto auto; font-family: "
alt="If this text is showing, there's most likely a
problem with the Dojo setup"
further exploration lead me to follow instructions in:
IOW, I did some more git calls; however, that still didn't produce the
js directory; hence, I just modified the login.html to reference the
js-src instead of the js directory. When I refreshed firefox, the
error msg had disappeared, but there were not buttons or fields
on the page. Only the nice LedgerSMB graphic.
Is that expected?
I'm afraid that's to be expected indeed. There should have been
documentation, probably, which told you copy
examples/conf/ledgersmb.conf.default to the project's root directory and
change row "# dojo_built = 1" to "dojo_built = 0" (that is: remove
leading "# " and change the "1" to "0").
That way, the UI/js-src/ directory gets mapped to the /js/ directory in the
Hope that helps!
