Gambas3 does not work Mint 20 [SOLVED]

Post by Jerry N »

Gambas3 installs from the repositories but does not run in Mint 20 Mate. I tried it twice!
This is a deal breaker for me - I cannot use Mint 20 this way. Does anyone have a solution?

From here: https://itsfoss.com/install-gambas-ubuntu/
Gambas failed to start?

In Ubuntu 20.04, Gambas fails to start because of a missing component. You can install it using the following command:

sudo apt install gambas3-gb-form-print

Once you installed it, you should be able to start Gambas successfully.
Please add a [SOLVED] at the end of your original subject header if your question has been answered and solved.

I know this is marked as "solved", but I also cannot get Gambas3 to work in Mint 20, even after installing gambas3-gb-form-print. Here's what I get in a terminal:

~$ gambas3
CCompilation.Init.24: Compiler not found
CCompilation.Init.24 CCompilation.Run.47 Jit._Compile.123

After that, nothing happens. I've installed every gambas3-* package in the Ubuntu repo. I'm not sure what I'm missing. Anybody know?
