yes my wife has her own desktop pc with Linux Ubuntu, she has for
convenience Gambas IDE so for the programs she asks me I install an
executable for her, but also a work in progress and I do it faster.
This time I felt like trying to create everything from code and indeed
the clock installed from his IDE works fine.
At this point I wondered, what if I wanted to distribute it with packages?
I realized that I didn't actually know many things:
For example, Benoit told me that the runtime is enough to run an
executable, I didn't know that, I thought you need to have the IDE.
And other things I still don't know, as you might have guessed from the
questions I asked.
Now I understand why Bruce is fascinated by scripts (which work even
without the IDE).

With the above in mind, the idea was to create the executable with the
collected data (font and location) to start it with a launcher and a
symlink in autostart.

Everything you wrote after that I did not understand and I apologize.
Can you be more clear?
I am going to sleep now, I wish you a good night (here) and good morning
