Re: fbc: problems with shared libraries (libtinfo5) Ubuntu 19.10

It's supposed to work. Please open a terminal and do: sudo apt-get install libtinfo5 Paste the output of this command here. [EDIT] Forgot to mention, if you're using 32-bit fbc in a 64-bit system, you must do: sudo apt-get install libtinfo5:i386 But I recommend installing 64-bit fbc instead.

Re: GW-BASIC is open source now

DarkBASIC Pro is open source too. It was awesome.
I left it at the time because it was Windows/DirectX only and I wanted to move to Linux/OpenGL.
That's why I changed to FB.

Re: how to configure kate ide to compile and run freebasic?

I tried using kate with fb many years ago and found it pretty cumbersome.
May I suggest using geany?
The keyword list is a little outdated, but it works out of the box.

Yeah, but the whole DirectX 12 for Linux thing looks like a trap to me.

It would be pretty cool if they released the QB 4.5 or QBX 7.1 source code.

Re: Voxl City Battle Tank Defense - OpenGL voxel engine - WIP

It's OpenGL. But I'm using some fbgfx to handle images before sending them to the GPU. Every object has 2 images for each frame. One is for color and the other is a depth map. The images get converted to arrays of colors, vertices and normals. They get optimized, and then they are uploaded as textur...

Re: Short linux program to download files from the internet

For something very simple, you could just use SHELL "wget http://blabla", provided wget is installed.
There' s also some libraries that can do that. Libcurl for example.

Same problem on Ubuntu 20.04.
But it can be solved by installing 'libtinfo5'.

Re: Trying to port existing Freebasic from Windows to Android

There's no official Android port of FreeBASIC yet. While Android uses the Linux kernel, the environment is very different from a standard Linux desktop distro. There's no xorg. There's an Android port by Teeemcee . I don't remember if it ever got merged. It works, but doesn't have fbgfx. You can com...

Re: Small environment to cross-compile for win32 from Linux

I use Linux (Lubuntu) as my main desktop OS.
I play some Windows games and use FreeBASIC to develop games for Windows, so I can't imagine using it without wine.

Re: Small environment to cross-compile for win32 from Linux

Yes, wine dependencies are bigger, but I think wine is something most Linux users will have already installed.
I have no other use for mingw-64.
But this can work with mingw-64 too, just change the "win32-*" links to the appropriate tools.
