Edited on 2015-01-06 06:21:24 by MikeKennedy [Fix Getmouse link]
Additions:
This comment applies to FB 1.01.0, and may apply to other builds also.
Install all of the Libraries listed above; some of the entries ending in “:i386” may throw “not found” errors.
1) Retry!
1) [Unrelated point: if "private" Libraries are needed for compiles, they were expected to be in /usr/local/lib/freebasic/. Now, they may have to be in /usr/local/lib/freebasic/linux-x86/].
1) [Mike Kennedy, Jan, 2015. (This note was not acceptable as a standard "comment" - I don't know why?)].
Deletions:
Install all of the above Libraries, as advised. Some of the entries ending in “:i386” may throw “not found” errors.
1) Retry! [Mike Kennedy, Jan, 2015. (This note was not acceptable as a standard "comment"?)].


Revision [17416]

Edited on 2015-01-05 15:32:07 by MikeKennedy [Fix Getmouse link]
Additions:
{{fbdoc item="section" value="Compiling under Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, 64-bit:"}}
Install all of the above Libraries, as advised. Some of the entries ending in “:i386” may throw “not found” errors.
To verify that you’re using a 64-bit build, use: “uname -a” or “uname -m” (it’ll show x86_64 for 64-bit, i386 for 32-bit).
Then, when running FBC, an error may appear: “error while loading shared libraries: libtinfo.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory”.
“libtinfo.so.5” is available as a separate library in Ubuntu 11.10+, but it is built into “ncurses.so.5” in 10.04 LTS. So, we need to re-direct the libtinfo references into the ncurses.so.5 libraries:
1) Issue: find / -name 'libtinfo.so.5' - just to verify that there are no confusing references to these libraries anywhere. Any references should be checked, and probably deleted?
1) Change to the folder containing the FBC executable (perhaps “/usr/local/bin/”).
1) Issue: ldd fbc - it will list the various library folder(s) being searched (probably “/lib32” in most cases).
1) Issue: sudo ln -s /lib32/libncurses.so.5 /lib32/libtinfo.so.5 (assuming “/lib32” was emitted in the previous step).
1) Issue: sudo ln -s /lib32/libtinfo.so.5 /lib32/libtinfo.so (assuming “/lib32”...)
1) Retry! [Mike Kennedy, Jan, 2015. (This note was not acceptable as a standard "comment"?)].

Additions:
{{fbdoc item="section" value="Windows 32bit"}}
1) Unless you already have a source code editor or IDE, you should install one too, as ""FreeBASIC"" itself does not include one. An IDE can be used to write and save .bas files and to launch the ""FreeBASIC"" Compiler to compile them. The following IDEs are known to explicitly support ""FreeBASIC"":

Revision [16569]

Edited on 2013-02-01 15:15:40 by DkLwikki [Update to be similar to 0.24's readme]
Additions:
Installing ""FreeBASIC"", any additionally needed packages, and perhaps a text editor or IDE.
1) Download the latest [[https://sourceforge.net/projects/fbc/files/Binaries%20-%20Windows/ FreeBASIC-x.xx.x-win32.exe]] installer
1) Run it and click through it. The installer will install ""FreeBASIC"" at ##""C:\%ProgramFiles%\FreeBASIC""##, or if you chose a different installation directory, in your chosen directory. Start Menu shortcuts to the website will be installed as well.
1) Unless you already have a text editor or IDE, you should install one too, as ""FreeBASIC"" itself does not include one. An IDE can be used to write and save .bas files and to launch the ""FreeBASIC"" Compiler to compile them. The following IDEs are known to explicitly support ""FreeBASIC"":
- [[http://fbide.freebasic.net/ FBIDE]]
- [[http://radasm.cherrytree.at/fbedit/ FBEdit]]

To uninstall ""FreeBASIC"", remove it from the system's list of installed software ([[http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/en-us/win_addprog_window_component.mspx Add/remove programs]], [[http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Uninstall-or-change-a-program Uninstall or change a program]]).
1) Download the latest [[https://sourceforge.net/projects/fbc/files/Binaries%20-%20Linux/ FreeBASIC-x.xx.x-linux.tar.gz]] package
1) Extract the archive, for example by doing right-click -> Extract Here, or manually in a terminal:

%%$ cd Downloads
$ tar xzf FreeBASIC-x.xx.x-linux.tar.gz%%

1) The ""FreeBASIC"" setup can be used from where it was extracted. Usually it is installed into the /usr/local system directory though, so that the ##fbc## program is available through-out the whole system. To do that, run the included installation script:

%%$ cd FreeBASIC-x.xx.x-linux
$ sudo ./install.sh -i%%

The ##install.sh## script can also be given a path as in ##./install.sh -i /usr## if you prefer to install into a directory other than the default ##/usr/local##. This default is a good choice though, as it avoids mixing with the content of ##/usr## which is usually managed by the distribution's packaging tool.

1) ""FreeBASIC"" requires several additional packages to be installed before it can be used to compile executables. In general, these are:

- binutils
- libc development files
- gcc
- ""g++ (or rather, libsupc++, part of libstdc++)""
- libncurses development files
- X11 development files (for FB graphics programs)
- libffi development files (for the [[KeyPgThreadCall ThreadCall]] keyword

The actual package names to install vary depending on the GNU/Linux distribution.

Debian/Ubuntu x86 (32bit):
- gcc, ""g++""
- libncurses5-dev
- libx11-dev, libxext-dev, libxrender-dev, libxrandr-dev, libxpm-dev
- libffi-dev

Debian/Ubuntu amd64 (64bit):
- gcc-multilib, ""g++-multilib""
- lib32ncurses5-dev
- libx11-dev:i386, libxext-dev:i386, libxrender-dev:i386, libxrandr-dev:i386, libxpm-dev:i386

older Debian/Ubuntu amd64 (64bit), before the switch to multiarch:
- gcc-multilib, ""g++-multilib""
- lib32ncurses5-dev
- ia32-libs
- lib32ffi-dev

""OpenSUSE"" x86 (32bit):
- gcc, ""gcc-c++""
- ncurses-devel
- xorg-x11-devel
- libffi46-devel

""OpenSUSE"" x86_64 (64bit):
- gcc-32bit, ""gcc-c++-32bit""
- ncurses-devel-32bit
- xorg-x11-devel-32bit
- xorg-x11-libX11-devel-32bit
- xorg-x11-libXext-devel-32bit
- xorg-x11-libXrender-devel-32bit
- xorg-x11-libXpm-devel-32bit
- libffi46-devel-32bit

1) Unless you already have a text editor or IDE, you should install one too, as ""FreeBASIC"" itself does not include one. An IDE can be used to write and save .bas files and to launch the ""FreeBASIC"" Compiler to compile them. The following IDEs are known to explicitly support ""FreeBASIC"":
- [[http://www.geany.org/ Geany]]

To uninstall ""FreeBASIC"" from ##/usr/local##, you can run the install.sh script again, but with the -u option: ##sudo ./install.sh -u##
1) Download the latest [[https://sourceforge.net/projects/fbc/files/Binaries%20-%20DOS/ FreeBASIC-x.xx.x-dos.zip]] archive
1) Find a place for ""FreeBASIC"" with at least 13 ""MiB"" free space.
1) Unpack the ZIP archive, making sure that the directory structure as used inside the archive is preserved ("PKUNZIP -d" for example).
1) The top-level directory is named ""FreeBASIC-x.xx.x-dos"" (will be truncated to "FREEBASI" in DOS without full LFN support), so you might want to rename it then to a convenient DOS-compliant name not longer than 8 characters and containing no white-spaces, like "FB".
1) All the important files used by the compiler (includes, libs) inside the archive do have DOS-compliant names, therefore DOSLFN is not required to use ""FreeBASIC"", however, some examples and texts do have longer names and will be truncated when extracted without full LFN support.
Deletions:
FreeBASIC installation.
Run the installer executable, and follow its instructions. FreeBASIC uses the NSIS installer which has a strong compression. The download size is ca 6 MB, after extraction the full total size is ca 50 MB.
FreeBASIC will be installed in ##C:\FreeBASIC##, or if you chose a different installation directory, in your chosen directory. Start Menu shortcuts to the Uninstaller and website will be installed as well.
Unpack the archive to a temporary folder and navigate to the root FreeBASIC installation directory. For example, if the FreeBASIC package you downloaded was called ##""FreeBASIC-vX.XX.Xb-linux.tar.gz""## and was in your home directory, type,
##cd##
//(change to your home directory)//
##mkdir -p tmp && cd tmp##
//(attempt to create a temporary directory and change to it)//
##tar -xzf ""../FreeBASIC-vX.XX.Xb-linux.tar.gz""##
//(unpack the archive)//
##cd FreeBASIC##
//(change to the root installation directory)//
Run the installation script ##install.sh## with the "-i" switch, optionally specifying the installation directory. For example, to install FreeBASIC into the default directory type,
##sudo ./install.sh -i##
//(the default installation)//
Run the installation script with no arguments for more info on command-line options. ##install.sh## will install FreeBASIC ##/usr/local## by default.
To uninstall FreeBASIC, you can run "install.sh -u"
{{fbdoc item="section" value="Linux (standalone)"}}
Unpack the archive to a temporary folder and navigate to the root FreeBASIC installation directory. For example, if the FreeBASIC package you downloaded was called ##""FreeBASIC-vX.XX.Xb-linux-standalone.tar.gz""## and was in your home directory, type,
##cd##
//(change to your home directory)//
##mkdir -p tmp && cd tmp##
//(attempt to create a temporary directory and change to it)//
##tar -xzf ""../FreeBASIC-vX.XX.Xb-linux-standalone.tar.gz""##
//(unpack the archive)//
##cd FreeBASIC##
//(change to the root installation directory)//
Run the installation script ##install-standalone.sh## with the "-i" switch, optionally specifying the installation directory. For example, to install FreeBASIC into the default directory type,
##sudo ./install-standalone.sh -i##
//(the default installation)//
Run the installation script with no arguments for more info on command-line options. ##install-standalone.sh## will install FreeBASIC to ##/usr/share/freebasic## by default and a symlink to the compiler binary will be created at ##/usr/bin/fbc## if run with root permission.
To uninstall FreeBASIC, you can run "install-standalone.sh -u"

Revision [14650]

Edited on 2010-06-18 08:26:48 by DkLwikki [Adjust to new installer]
Additions:
Run the installer executable, and follow its instructions. FreeBASIC uses the NSIS installer which has a strong compression. The download size is ca 6 MB, after extraction the full total size is ca 50 MB.
FreeBASIC will be installed in ##C:\FreeBASIC##, or if you chose a different installation directory, in your chosen directory. Start Menu shortcuts to the Uninstaller and website will be installed as well.
Deletions:
Open and run the installer executable, and follow its instructions. Don't forget to check which external libraries are being installed, as some are not selected by default. FreeBASIC uses the NSIS installer having a strong compression. The download size is cca 6 MiB, after extraction the full total size is cca 50 MiB, but can be much less if you don't install the optional libraries.
If successful, FreeBASIC will be installed in ##C:\Program Files\FreeBASIC##, or if you chose a different installation directory, in your chosen directory. Desktop and Start Menu shortcuts will be installed by default as well.
