Re: Upgrading to 3.16.0

Hi guys.

Re: Upgrading to 3.16.0

Well, it’s been an exiting 24 hours. I followed Bruce’s and Steve’s suggestion and installed this Synaptic app. Used it to de-activate noobslab. Next, went back to the Terminal to upgrade Gambas. Noobslab was gone and procedures started. Suddenly at some point some error message, but upgrade continu...

Re: PDF quandary - A cry for clarity.

Vuott, I also said that I would (like to perhaps) write a report about this issue. I just wanted to wait and check a few points after having upgraded to the latest Gambas version. And that went wrong as you probably read here : https://forum.gambas.one/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=1122 (still not solved). I...

Re: Upgrading to 3.16.0

I would like to try that Steve, but how do I disable or remove this noobs ppa ? I already visited https://launchpad.net/~gambas-team/+archive/ubuntu/gambas3 and tried - as they suggest: Adding this PPA to your system You can update your system with unsupported packages from this untrusted PPA by add...

Re: Upgrading to 3.16.0

Hi Steve. Yes, every SwitchButton works. I did already try starting the upgrade and got as far as 'sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gambas-team/gambas3' when I got presented with some stuff I didn't like right away. So I broke it off. But as it turns out, it seems I can go ahead. Fingers crossed as usual...

Upgrading to 3.16.0

This is a really humble question.
Is the following going to get me the latest (3.16.0) version ?

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gambas-team/gambas3
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

Re: PDF quandary - A cry for clarity.

Gentlemen, this is starting to deviate away from the real reason for this topic. PJBlack, you seem to be sceptical? Well, Vuott did not write “ You have to activate "gb.desktop.x11" and "gb.cairo" Components.” He wrote about activating gb.desktop.x11 first and activating gb.desktop afterwards. And t...

Re: PDF quandary - A cry for clarity.

Well, I couldn’t have known that, could I ?
But ‘Bingo’ It works !
Let’s see now if I can get it to do what I exactly want.
