At long last I found the time to get Gambas2 compiled and running on Raspberry Pi with Raspbian Wheezy and DomotiGa (

Things were made extra hard by my determination to not expand the 2GB rootfs so I had to strip some stuff out- but it does mean you can restore to any SD card 2GB or larger.

SSH is enabled but I didn’t put vncserver on this time.

I didn’t document the process- but essentially kept trying to


gambas2 and each time an error came up I used to try and determine what I needed to install. Because of the lack of free space I had to wget and

dpkg –I

to install many of the packages- I couldn’t use


. I used

df –h

to check on free space as I went and

find / -type f -size +5000k

to find and remove large files (cache/docs etc).

Shell login: pi
Shell password: raspberry
Mysql root password: raspberry



Please let me know how you get on!
