For the person that craves the challenge of the Linux system - our goal in developing Linux software is NOT geared towards the 'Linux guru' but for the "rest of us folks". Mainly the many of you that have gotten put off by the tactics that Microsoft has recently taken to (demonstrated by the release of Windows 10) or just has a desire to start the learning process of the fascinating world of GNU/ Linux.
So.. our Linux software development "plan for action" has two paths.
(1) to provide a GUI (graphical interface) for users that prefer this type interaction with the system for some apps that I've personally found a need for - in other words - the M$ Windows "point and click" concept of computing that a lot of us folks have grown accustom to and may prefer.
(2) to explain the concept, and provide useful examples of Bash scripts. For those that don't know - Bash scripting is one of the easiest types of scripting to learn, and is best compared to Windows Batch scripting. Bash is very flexible, and has many advanced features that you won't see in batch scripts.
All this software was programmed using "Gambas3 v3.10.0" .
VERY IMPORTANT: before installing any of this software you'll need to have or install the newest Gambas Library and v10 Runtime files - most systems will not have these very new files installed yet. You'll only need to do this once!
Do so via the following
3 terminal commands:
sudo apt install gambas3-runtime
If the above command returns "TRUE" the RUNTIME files are installed - if not, will give you the option to install.
I expect to have MANY new Linux apps published (as well as some information content) on the site in the near future; therefore, think it best to group them for the sake of non-clutterization (if that's a word):
If you find any of the content useful, we here at code-it, would GREATLY APPRECIATE any donation to help keep us afloat.
