So I want to install LC on a headless - i.e. no GUI, access over SSH - Ubuntu 20.
(Then I'll be using it to run a particular stack on a cron job.)
I've done this a long time ago with a standalone - but in this case I'd rather
be able to do it with a stack.
The only thing that I know about is "-ui" but I'm not even far enough along to
make use of this.
My first question is what's the best way to install it? Do I download the
installer, e.g. "LiveCodeCommunityInstaller-9_6_1-Linux.x64", move it to the
server and run it there? Or is that going to be a GUI installer?
Are there options I need to know about like where it should go?
And then are there tips about where I put my stacks, how to see error or
debugging output, how the stack reads command line parameters etc?
Any and all advice welcome - especially of course "go and read this guide over
here you idiot".
