Hi AndieGamble Also I have a custom wrote DLL that handles the tills promotions (written in VB.net) I did not write this I paid someone to do that for me can I still use it with Gambas?

Re: unable to create working installation rpm

Hi sadams54,

Apparently the package util-linux-2.35.1-1.fc32.x86_64 already contains a file/binary named 'rename'.
That's what causes your conflict as your package is also named 'rename'

I suggest you name your package differently and try again.

Re: update screwed everything up

Hi, 1. You mention Global variables!!! Gambas doesn't have Global variables, so what exactly do you mean? 2. Did your default font type for your OS maybe change? As far as I am aware gb.Report2 has a certain order of checking what font type to use. An other font type might make fonts bigger or small...

Re: Packaging Gambas for Debian

Hi, I have no idea if it will work on Debian but this link seems to think that it is not a problem after you install the necessary software.

This directory structure comes down to a folder with all gambas source files and in there a folder named debian. In this debian folder you will need all kinds of files being: - ...

Re: Odd Console Warnings

Hi issboss, They are warnings, and don't seem to affect the system when I compile to an executable and run it, so I am tempted to simply ignore them by clearing the console before every debug session. I know that doesn't do anything to the actual cause of the warnings though, but being a long-term (...
