I need a bit more information about the problem you are having. What OS are you running? What version of BASIC-256 are you running (see Help/About)? What program are you running when it sticks?

If you are using the 0.9.2.x version that loads with the Ubuntu Synaptic for the current version please find the back port instructions at [msg]6[/msg]

This happens to me the same way.

Have you tried upgrading using the "Backport" instructions on [msg=6]Forum Post 6[/msg]?

Basic-256 runs fine under Windows XP SP3 but is always getting irresponsive under Ubuntu Lucid.
I tried both the version in Ubuntu's main repository and the backport Jim suggested but it didn't help. I tried it on two different machines with basically the same OS.
Basic sticks while I'm typing in the program area. It has some "favourite" words, for example 'color' (it sticks immediately after I've typed it), or 'input' (if I use this command with a text expression, it sticks as I've typed the closing quotation mark).
Does anyone have an idea?

It appears that the "backport" instructions work for some people some of the time.

You can download the DEB file version 0.9.6.59 for lucid at [link=https://launchpad.net/~ryanakca/+archive/basic256-backports/+packages]https://launchpad.net/~ryanakca/+archive/basic256-backports/+packages[/link]

Scroll down to builds, select your architecture, and then you will see the DEB files you can download and install.

I would uninstall the old 0.9.2.. version of BASIC256 you have installed before installing this new one.

Let me know if this works.

Thank you, Jim,
I did what you suggested and now it works perfectly!
I think your program is a great idea, both my nine year old son and me enjoy it very much. :)

I am running Ubuntu 9.10. I install Basic256 from software center. It freezes the same way as Peter describes. I tried the PPA apt-get solution. It install but acts the same. I tried the last suggestion downloading the .deb package. I get a dependency error of libqtcor4. Can't find the version needed in synaptic. Is there a version of Basic256 that runs on Ubuntu 9.10?

The backport packages are for 10.4 and 10.10. BASIC256 should compile from source on 9.4 but I do not know of a DEB/RPM package for 9.x.

I would download the source and follow the instructions in the trunk/COMPILING file or would upgrade my Ubuntu.

Ya, I tried to compile it from the source but had dependency probs. I may try again. But if it doesn't work I have a laptop around here somewhere I can Ubuntu 10.10 on. Thanks!
