I have read the discussions about 'can you make money from a Linux app'
I'd like to give it a try.
I've gotten myself a VMWare session with Ubuntu and Firefox.
I;ve downloaded the deb file that RB offer for Ubuntu
But my Ubuntu does not recognise this as an extractable package.

True, what I know about Linux I can write on half a stamp, but we all have to start somewhere.
Can anyone tell me how to make Ubuntu with a Gnome GUI (I think) unpack RB?

I have an app I am selling happily on Windows and Mac, and want to be the first to market (whatever size that is) with a Linux version.

The standard action for double clicking the .deb file on your desktop should be to launch the installer. If this does not work for some reason, you can also try to do it from the command line:
sudo dpkg -i realbasiclinux.deb

Thanks for that.
Thought I'd tried it, but ... case sensitive OS.
Curses...
Installed now.

I have along journey ahead, but the first step has been taken.. :)
Cheers
