New Start

Post by SheepRustler » Wednesday 17th April 2019 9:13am

Hello
I'm looking for a bit of help here folks, I'm trying to install Gambas but when I run ./reconf-all in Terminal it throws the following:

./reconf-all: 7: ./reconf-all: libtoolize: not found
./reconf-all: 8: ./reconf-all: autoreconf: not found

then
./configure -C throws
bash: ./configure: No such file or directory

and Im stuck..........

Be gentle with me please, I've just migrated (upgraded?) from Windows 10 & writing .net/Visual Studio apps to Ubunto and I'm keen to try Gambas out. I've quickly learned that installing programs on Linux isnt always that straightforward :)

OK, I've worked it out - always read through the manual! :lol:

It allows you to install latest Gambas 3 stable version without compiling it!
First add the PPA to your sources.list. Open a terminal and do:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gambas-team/gambas3
Next update the sources and install Gambas:

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install gambas3
After installation you will find Gambas 3 installed in menu 'Programming'.

Welcome Sheep Rustler.
I made the same transition you are making some years ago and have never looked back.

From .net to programming something meaningful in Gambas took about 2 weeks. The only thing that used to throw me was swapping the languages - back then, work was .net and home hobby was Gambas so my rapid typing where it came to syntax was a little blurred.
