I've had great success as a SmallBASIC user on Linux for years. Thanks!
I am currently converting everything (hopefully) to FatDog64 Linux, which currently does not have a package for SmallBASIC, and the team FatDog64 tried to help, but were not successful in compiling a .txz package, as, "smallbasic uses FLTK 2.x which is deprecated (you can't even download it from the FLTK website). Harass the author to switch to supported version of FLTK, e.g. 1.3.x branch ... that would be a lot of help."
Help?? 1.3.3 seems to be current.
