Decimal BASIC for Linux (Intel)

We provide with an ISO Full BASIC language system that works on Gnu/Linux (x86).
This program implements almost all of the core module and the graphics module of ISO Full BASIC.
It has not been conformed with the standard, whereas there are very few differences.
All graphics commands prescribed in ANSI Full BASIC are implemented with slight incompatibility on behavior.
Most part of the modules module and the individual character input module for Full BASIC are implemented, too.

Trouble Shooting

Linux on ChromeBook
When extracted into the Linux files folder, basic may be invalided on execute permission.

If the command is bypassed with Permission Denied, type on the terminal
sudo chmod 775 basic
and then

Decimal BASIC for Linux(x86-64) ver. (64bit Qt5 Edition)

Qt5 vesion perfoms clipping right, but requires Qt5Pas library.

To install Qt5Pas

do on the terminal
sudo dnf install qt5pas
on Fedora 30,Fedora 31 Cinnamon,Fedora 31 KDE Plasma

Trouble shooting

Fedora31 Fedora32
To install qt and qt5pas, do
sudo dnf install qt5 qt5pas
on the terminal.
To launch BASIC, type on the terminal
./basic --platform xcb
Otherwise, select GNOME on Xorg on login by clicking the gear icon.

On the terminal, execute
sudo apt-get install qt5-default
and then, along with
Lazarus Wiki Qt5 Interface
download libqt5pas1_2.6.beta-5_amd64.deb from
and install.
Refer to Qt5 bindings for Ubuntu 18.04 (Lazarus Forum)

We can confirm the error message by executing on the terminal as
(1) error while loading shared libraries: libQt5Pas.so.1: …
Incomplete Qt5Pas library.
(2) … undefined symbol: QPrinterInfo_availablePrinterNames
Qt5Pas verison too old.
This happens on Ubuntu 18.04 after apt-get install libqt5pas1 executed.
(3) … Can only be used with threads started with QThread
This happens on Feodra 31.
