In the course of implementing GSettings for Gnome Commander, I created a Dockerfile which uses Ubuntu 15.04 as a base image. This ubuntu version is the oldest one on which I managed a successfull build of Gnome Commander with GSettings (it needs at least glib 2.44).
If you are interested in the Dockerfile you can get it here:
The only thing which is currently done in the resulting Docker container is to install all required libraries needed to finally “make” and “make check” Gnome Commander in the GSettings branch.
Have nice and calm Christmas holidays! Uwe
BTW: You have to execute
docker build . from inside the Gnome
Commander sources top directory.
