Gambas on ZorinOS

I am looking for a programming language for ZorinOS and I am actually used to Basic.

Is there a ZorinOS-user who is using Gambas with ZorinOS Pro ? ... and can you recommend this way ?


I don't program myself but follow this guide:


sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gambas-team/gambas3

sudo apt update && sudo apt install gambas3 gambas3-gb-form-print

Should do the trick.

Gambas works perfectly fine on Zorin OS.

I didn't post the PPA because of the warning here:


Mostly Python (idle) is the best but everything works on Zorin there is no question about Compatiblity :man_shrugging:

sudo apt install idle

Thanks for the correction, I did not know that. It's good to have you around.

The warning in question states:

Note: At the time of writing this article, this PPA is not available for Ubuntu 20.04 and higher version. This is probably because Ubuntu 20.04 already provides the latest Gambas 3.14. Do not use this PPA for Ubuntu 20.04.
