Second to that !
A great program, FreeBasic has been spoiled with lousy installation system.
I managed to install 0.18 and run it after a lot of Googling.
Installing version 0.21 is as if walking to a wall.

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.

Hey Everyone,

Trying to get back into programming a little. I've tried installing from the options on the download page to no avail, the .run files pop open a terminal but it immediately close and there is nothing installed. Is there any new news for 0.23 on a 64 bit machine?? specifically Ubuntu 12.04 LTS?

I'm tempted to just try it under wine, I really would rather have something native

Open a terminal and type

    cd ~/your/path/to/FBinstaller
    chmod a+x ./FreeBASIC-0.23.0-linux.run
    sudo ./FreeBASIC-0.23.0-linux.run install

(2. line: chmod makes the installer executable. 3. line starts the installation process with root privileges, you have to enter your password.)

thanks! :) The key difference from what I was doing is the root privilage. I remember modding Nautilus to have a 'SUDO' option, but I wish it was enabled by default

The link to getlibs-all.deb on Cappy's page is down.
See viewtopic.php?f=5&t=20978 on how to get freebasic working on recent 64bit Ubuntu based systems.
