Ok so,

I have to buy one and if I understand what you say, I have to buy this one :

Right ?

Other question : Is there some sources files available with the book download file ? I don't know because we don't have any details on this :)

Thx in advance.

Hi :)

Just want to know, what is the different between this one :

and this one :

Attention ! I know that there is a printed book version, but here, these two products are ticked "file download", so I wonder what's the difference :) (the price is different too).

Thank you for your support.

Because same title, and they are both ebook or "file download" so what's the difference ?

thank you in advance :)

Hi there :)

I'm new and I just take a look to GLBasic. I tried to make some samples work on Linux. I saw this topic in the FAQ :

That works but, this work with distros witch use deb style packages. For other distros like Fedora 15 it's a little more tricky. How the FAQ said you could use getlibs for Ubuntu style distros but I'm going to show you an other way to find files you need to make games work on it :)

I would like first to apologize for my poor english. because I am french ^^

Let's do a recap, we need these :


And theses lib :

If you work with a 64 bit Os, be sure to install these libs in a 32 bit version too :)

Ubuntu / Linux Mint

For the libSDL and libstdc++ package juste make :

sudo apt-cache search -n <name>

example :

Code: GLBasic [Select]
sudo apt-cache search -n libSDL

You will find what you need and then do apt-get install <name>

example :

Code: GLBasic [Select]
sudo apt-get install libsdl-mixer1.2*

For the libs you could use getlibs but there is a tool that work perfectly for them and available directly. Just install apt-file

Code: GLBasic [Select]
sudo apt-get install apt-file

Then to find the package that contain the libs do :

sudo apt-file search <name>

For example , to find :

Code: GLBasic [Select]
sudo apt-file search  

Linux will return the packages that contain the lib you need, after just install the package with apt-get install

Fedora / Distros with Yum tool

It's more easy I think.

For libSDL and libstdc++ juste do

yum list "*<name>*"

example :

Code: GLBasic [Select]
yum list "*libSDL*"


Code: GLBasic [Select]
yum search SDL

You will find package you need. If not, try to change the name like SDL instead of libSDL. Sometimes packages haven't the same name.

For the lib it's very very simple. Just do :

yum install <name>

Example :

Code: GLBasic [Select]
yum install

Yum will find automatically the right package to install for you :)

Hope this helps :)

Happy GLB !
