[SOLVED] suggestion for new package

Hello everybody!

I would like to suggest one package that is available for 'ubuntu' and 'mxlinux' to be adopted by Devuan and made available in the repos.
'foliate' - e-book reader with many features including highlighting and annotations, nice gui, reads most popular formats

Thank you for the excellent distro!

p.s. if this is not appropriate or not allowed, please delete the post.

Can you not just install the .deb from MX? Their bullseye base should be compatible with chimaera but don't add their repositories.

Was not sure about dependencies and compatibility but your word was enough as a guarantee.

p.s. Works fine.

As long as you just install the .deb (with gdebi or whatever) then it can only be installed if the dependencies are satisfied by what is available from the Devuan repositories.

Adding the MX repositories would cause problems so don't try that.
