*>I never use installer packages I just copy project folder and recompile.*
Before retirement I was a Gambas3 analyst and programmer for my company for
15 years. All my programs had to run (and still do) on more than 100
machines, I wouldn't dream of handing out source code. I made myself a
repository on our servers and the .deb packages were installed and updated
on all machines with no problem (well... ahem, ahem). Since then I like to
install my programs on my machine which allows me to see them in system
menus, put them in login programs, etc. It is also used to check external
dependencies and more.
*>Does the packager have gambas options set in the requirements? Like
require minimum gambas version, gambas components, etc.*
*If so try removing those options.*
The problem is that pacman doesn't see the Gambas3 installation from source
and needs to check the dependencies.
*>Install gambas via pacman, then install all your programs, then update to
autotools gambas after.*
This may, perhaps, be the solution. I have no idea how to upgrade from
3.18.2 to 3.18.3 from sources... but I'll do some more digging.
Thank you very much for the feed back.
