I wrote to Ubuntu pointing out that the Gambas 'Deb' file was faulty. Here is the email: -

Can you help me get the above package fixed. Installing Gambas results in a non functioning program. The problem seems to be that the list of files is incomplete.
The command "sudo apt-get -y install gambas3" works but when you try to run the program it results in "gbr3: unable to load component: gb.form.print".
The solution is to run the following command: -
sudo apt-get -y install gambas3 gambas3-gb-form-print gambas3-gb-gtk-opengl gambas3-gb-gtk3 gambas3-gb-gui-opengl gambas3-gb-gui-qt gambas3-gb-gui-qt-webkit gambas3-gb-gui-trayicon gambas3-gb-libxml
gambas3-gb-option gambas3-gb-report gambas3-gb-sdl gambas3-gb-sdl-sound gambas3-gb-v4l gambas3-templates gambas3-gb-qt5 gambas3-gb-qt5-ext gambas3-gb-qt5-opengl gambas3-gb-qt5-webkit
Gambas will now run.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
Due to the work for the bug report at  this actually works fine in the coming 20.10 release without the massive listing of to-be-installed packages.
Dependencies there are: gambas3 -> gambas3-ide -> gambas3-gb-form-print
With the package in Universe I'm not sure anyone is planning/working on an SRU  for it, but the bug I linked should give you the right pointers if you (or anyone else) want to do so.
