Re: No installer for linux?

Whoa there, fella, I'm just asking questions, not spreading 'disinformation'! As stated, I'm new to Linux, so it's an alien world to me. Probably this thread should be locked, as I will probably not be using the Linux version anyway. However, other people may find useful information in it. Who knows...

Re: No installer for linux?

I'm totally new to Linux, so forgive my ignorance. What is the difference between the distributions, specifically? I know they have different GUI/Window managers (KDE, Gnome, etc), so that's one thing. But what makes them 'incompatible' with each other other than that? They are all based on, I'm gue...

Re: No installer for linux?

Sounds like a royal pain in the a**, not only for Fantaisie Software and its user base but for Linux developers in general! What do the "seasoned" Linux-PB developers here do? Mainly, I mean developers who do their primary or even exclusive developing on their Linux machine and have been d...

Re: No installer for linux?

Ok, so it's not possible to support every single distribution of Linux. Which distro is recommended? Which one is PB-Linux actually developed/tested on? I know that limiting Linux-PB to 'recommended distributions' would probably solve some issues, but then it would exclude those people who are using...

Re: No installer for linux?

....well, it teaches us Windoz Users to be more grateful for what we have. Not sure if Linus Torvalds has more than a passing interest in Linux these days, but if he still has the passion then it would serve the Linux cause if he could get all major parties together to thrash-out some proper standa...

Re: No installer for linux?

C'mon, guys, can't somethng be done about this? Which, of the 57,000 varieties of Linux do you recommend they support? In addition to the assumption (which you noted) that everyone has a Ph. D. in computer science and dreams in C, nearly each distro has different requirements. It's quite a hassle w...

Did you miss this? http://www.purebasic.fr/english/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=26957 Yeah, I guess I did ;) Of course, no matter, since all of the links in that thread are defunct... (the original post was from 2007...) But more to my point, this install script, wherever it is in cyberspace currently,...

No installer for linux?

I recently installed Linux for a test drive (Ubuntu 10.10 - So far, I REALLY like it!), and downloaded the Linux version of PB to give it a try. Whereas the Windows package installs in a few seconds and you're done, I was quite disappointed to find that everything is left up to the end user to manua...

Re: I've Had It!

In reality, all versions of BASIC use pointers...they just hide the "complexity" from the user and are generally safer because the compiler/running environment prevents the user from accessing outside the allotted areas of memory, etc.. For example, when you declare a variable, that variab...

Re: Development roadmap for PureBasic

Hey, Thorium, completely OT, but is that the "Monkey Island" monkey in your avatar? I love it! (I wish they'd do another monkey Island....) Anyway, I think it would be difficult to make PB able to compile for iPhone, etc because of their specific natures and the OS specific nature of PB (I...

Re: AmigaOS emulator?

http://www.amigaforever.com/ Their Amiga offerings range between $9.95US (Value Edition) and $49.95US (Premium Edition). Honestly, it's well worth the price if you are interested in running an Amiga emulation. As far as ROMs go, the Value Edition only includes the 1.3 ROM, but this is what 95% of th...

Still, it would be nice to have the same behaviour on all platforms without having to make changes/exceptions in your source. Surely alpha is supported on these other platforms since my BlitzMax programs that use alpha work just fine there, so what's the reason for the non-support of alpha commands?...

Kaeru, nice to see your POV-Ray link (It's good to see that modeller is still around, even with Blender and trueSpace out there in the 'free' sw world).

Does it have to be a child window? If not, just create a 'normal' window that does what you want (You can even have it close/minimize etc with the 'parent' if you want to).
