Nice. Thanks.

What process did you use to create the package? Manually or script?
Is this a repackaging of the release binary? Or a recompile also?

The download page warns me that the download expires in a few weeks. If you can provide some details on how the package was made, and a few users can test that the package works OK for them, we could probably upload it to fbc on sourceforge.net. This is kind of what I was talking about in some other posts, with some packages being created by the community.

I used this post :
https://www.freebasic.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=25266&p=227176&hilit=deb#p227176

I generated the package in a lxd container to avoid installing too many dependencies in the real system. I didn't modify anything in the original freebasic source code. I used freebasic 1.05 to compile version 1.06. you can upload the package to sourceforge.net if you want.

for more details. check out my tutorial here https://tech.korben.info/t/install-kde-neon-chiffrage-total-astuces/13146:

at the end of the tutorial. Sorry. In French.

Thank you. That's better. I forgot to congratulate you on the excellent job you did to promote freebasic. Impressive.

Hello,

it's not really a bug. freebasic's makefile has been simplified under Linux and doesn't respect the standard. personally I copy manually (accessible in the git) the example files and freebasic documentation in a specific directory in the user's home to be able to access them. maybe it would be better not to include the documentation or examples in the deb archive anymore because it's true that it takes up a lot of space...

otherwise it would be necessary to modify in depth the makefile of freebasic to respect the standard....

I've never created .deb archive so I don't know what can be done or not. And it's been a while since I tested `./install.sh`. Documentation and examples could be separate packages I suppose.

Usually, I install fbc after compiling it, using `make install`, though I do notice that fbc.1 doesn't get copied to a known location, so `man fbc` won't work by default. I guess I haven't really paid much attention to it, typically using the on-line wiki all the time.

using make install under linux is not recommended because it will be difficult to uninstall the program usefully whereas with the deb format it is very easy...

to generate a deb file you have to use checkinstall....

for examples and documentation, it will not be accessible to the user without root access anyway. as for the man file it is more suitable for small programs. it doesn't have much interest for fbc...

Ideally, beginners should be informed that they must manually copy the example files and freebasic documentation into a specific directory accessible under home....

for information I use geany as an editor under freebasic.
