Likewise , hence a lovely script to avoid all the headaches for others :)

Er no, that is exactly what this script is for.
I have tested it on debian, raspbian, mint, ubuntu and manjaro.
running this script from a fresh linux install before installing anything
else installed ALL the required dependencies and compiled and installed
gambas in one go :)

I think i've done enough , the user has to do something for themselves
right? ;) lol
To be honest if the script gets to that final message it means everything
went well.
I guess i could take out the word "Hopefully"

I think it would not be bad to provide your script by the Gitlab Gambas

C'est possible
Not heard much against it yet mind.
Mostly good  ;)
