It would be nice to just be able to type
docker run qgroundcontrol and be done with it. I'm running a DIY-built Debian-ish machine, and don't want to start messing with my set-up, especially in the Qt area. I've gone down the Xen VM route now, which is actually just fine.
Thanks for the feedback, I just wanted to know I wasn't wasting time sorting this out when there was a simpler option.
