I don't know much about Debian systems, so I've copied address@hidden back onto this reply to let everyone else know that it looks like you are up and running now.

Unless, of course, you still have questions. 😉

Hi DaR

Sorry for the delay replying. I work at hospital and have a very active family so my time is scattered. Here
is how I install gforth on Trisquel HP G60 AMD 64. My Linux manual is Linux in a Nutshell 6th Edition.

First copy sources.list to [your account]/Documents
and edit.

then from this link
after reading edit sources.list by entering the following statement

deb taranis main

changing ES to the country your gforth package is located.

Thus deb taranis main

Sources.list should look something like this...

#deb cdrom:[Trisquel 6.0.1 _toutatis_ - Release amd64 (20140319)]/ toutatis main

# Trisquel repositories for supported software and updates
deb toutatis main
deb taranis main
# deb toutatis-backports main
# deb-src toutatis-backports main

Store sources.list.

Open terminal  go to etc/apt
to see if sources.list is there.
sudo rm sources.list
asks for your password (enter pw)
dir sources.list should be gonee

go to home/yourname/Documents
to see sources.list
enter the command
cp sources.list /etc/apt
now check apt to see if sources.list is there

Clisk on the Trisquel symbol at bottom left of desktop
choose System Settings page to the bottom and select
Synaptic Package Manager
hit Reload. This may take a bit of time.
Below Reload make sure All is highlighted
In the Quick Filter box type gforth and click Search
select all gforth items and follow prompts
From Synaptic Package Manager install selected
gforth packages.

gforth is ready to go. Open Termina and type gforth and
you are on your way.

Again thanks for your very prompt reply. Sorry for my slow response.

Kind regards,
William Stahl

I've found Ubuntu to be real easy to setup and use.

Then gforth is as easy as “sudo apt-get install gforth”

Hi all,

First I am very green. I have some idea about forth as I have programmed
the HP 50g which has a forth like operating system and RPL programming
environment. I decided to go direct to ANS forth via gforth. Especially
sense it is free software as I support the movement.

I have read Brend's suggestion to install openSUSE and have done so. Had
no problem compiling gforth [gforth-0.7.1.tar.gz.] However openSUSE is
not shown as a free operating system on I have installed Trisequel
but am not sure how to create a development environment to allow me to
gforth-0.7.1.tar.gz  ( I prefer the OpenSUSE GNOME )

So I am thinking of installing gnewsense. I would like to support FSF
and GNU as much as possible. So within the gforth community is there a
preference to one or other operating system?

Kind regards,
William Stahl

PS I have donated to gforth development and FSF and will continue to do
so I really appreciate all you do.
