>It's a bit of a problem if you have compiled and installed gambas manually and not just installed via package manager.
>On my system i can use theGambas "Create Installation package" function and create an installation package but i cannot use it as the .deb file it makes then checks the dpkg database for what i have installed and does not find anything gambas so gives errors.
>Nor can i use any other .deb package installer for anything gambas.
>On my system because i have compiled gambas i cannot use apt-get to install anything made by the gambas packager. I also have to be careful that nothing tries to install/update a gambas dependency/component without checking first as it will try.
>For example if an installer just runs..
>apt-get install gambas3-gb-form
>usually if it's already installed it just does not bother installing but in my case it will try as it does not know i already have it.
>Probably a situation i won't end up in but it's possible if some one has not written good enough code.
>If only there was a way to trick apt into thinking gambas was there.
