What does a PySide2 (Qt for Python) desktop software application for Windows, Mac or Linux need to be distributed with in order to comply with LGPL license requirements?
I'm talking about a simple, bare-bones application that only uses these modules:
from PyQt5 import QtCore, QtGui, QtWidgets
Can ANYONE that actually develops and distributes and sells downloadable desktop software PLEASE provide a clear example of what exactly the developer needs to put into their program and also distribute to the end customer?
In my research, I see "dynamically linked" and "statically linked" but I have no idea what this means in the context of Python. I am absolutely clueless here.
Note: the whole point of selling under LGPL would be that I don't want to give my actual application's source code to the end customer (obviously).
Here's my best guess:
- Copyrights inside the GUI (maybe in a "Help" menu)
- Provide LGPLv3 and GPLv3 texts (also maybe in a "Help" menu)
- Modifications file (but I don't ACTUALLY plan to modify the PySide2 library itself, just use it so........)
- a copy of PySide2 separate from the actual application (ex: on Windows, a myapp.exe + a directory with the PySide2 library? Can this be a link instead?)
- what else?
