Re: Gambas 3.11 is out

Hi reason and welcome to the forum. I use Mint 19 (19.1 is not out yet!) and have no trouble with the command as used in my post of Monday 27th August 2018 above. What did you use?

Re: icons

What I would like is to be able create a '.deb' or 'RPM' in Gambas and it install it on any Distro. I have tried changing '.deb' files to install a ppa that would solve the problem on 'apt-get' systems, it's all very messy! I know nothing about 'Snaps' but this looks like a way to solve this problem...

Re: need help with updates for my program

..your sudo program was missing the semicolon. I thought 'That's interesting' so I installed Fedora 28 and Gambas. I installed 'Sudo' and had all sorts of problems as my name was not in the 'sudoers' file and I was going to be reported! :( Anyway once I had sorted that I had no problem as all, I di...

Re: need help with updates for my program

Why does you program need to be in /bin? If it needs to go there you could use my 'Sudo' program on the Farm but this will require the user to enter the password.

Can you post the program here so we can see how it might be done?

Re: Gambas 3.11 is out

Hi Steve,

The Terminal command I use for *buntu, Mint etc. distros is: -

Code: Select all

sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:gambas-team/gambas3 && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -y install gambas3 
This will add the ppa and install or update Gambas3 stable.

Re: need help with updates for my program

Your program can't closed itself, update and restart. You will need another program to do this for you or you will have to do the job yourself. AutoUpdater does not require any user intervention to do the update.

If you use Dropbox or similar you won't need a 'repo'.

Re: need help with updates for my program

Have a look at a program I wrote some time ago that will do what you requested. On the Gambas Farm you will find 'AutoUpdater'. Make an executable of it and put it on your Desktop. Don't run it yet as nothing will happen. Edit the Desktop file so you can add an -s switch to the command e.g. '/home/m...

Re: Printing example

The other files are there but you can't see them as they are 'hidden'. In you File Manager try pressing [Ctrl] + H to un-hide them. Dolphin: use [Alt] ++.

Does that help? Gambas should see the files once they have been extracted.
