It would be nice if you could provide a script/program that automatically creates a .deb from a "normal" .zip package and/or describe how to use it.
Have you built/used something like that or was manual work involved for creating the .deb package?

It's easy. There is example how generate .deb from sources from git repositary.

First you must have fbc installed on your debian baset (debian,ubuntu,mint....) machine.
You can download it from

Code: Select all


unzip and as usual:

Code: Select all

sudo sh install.sh -i

and here it is:

Code: Select all

# install git and make and checkinstall
sudo apt install -y git make checkinstall
# clone fbc git repository
git clone https://github.com/freebasic/fbc.git
# install gcc and necessary libs
sudo apt install -y gcc libncurses-dev libgpm-dev libx11-dev libxext-dev libxpm-dev libxrandr-dev libxrender-dev libgl1-mesa-dev libffi-dev
# cd to fbc dir
cd fbc
# make fbc
# generated .deb package
sudo checkinstall --install=no

Then follow the instructions and .deb it generate.
I added some dependences for automatic installation to my package:
gcc, libncurses-dev, libffi-dev, libgl1-mesa-dev, libx11-dev, libxext-dev, libxrender-dev, libxrandr-dev, libxpm-dev

btw there is some script to generate .deb in FreeBASIC-1.05.0-source/contrib/deb
