    You could try Gambas. It is not quite VB, but AFAIK, it is the closest you will get.

    RealBasic too.
    Nothing is worse than ten penguins fighting over which is better, vi or emacs.

    What distro are you using? There may be packages for your package manager. This would simplify things for you .

    Visual is not always basic

    I tried forever to find a good vb like environment for linux, it just isnt happening. What I finally settled on was using kdevelop. It includes a gui builder and you can use just about any kind of code inside the event handlers. I personally installed kdevelop, ruby, and korundum. Ruby is very similar to vb syntactically, and it is much more powerful. If you are comfortable with vb, you should have no trouble creating visual ruby apps in kdevelop.
    The downside is that everything is scripted, so you have no way of concealing your source. But that doesnt really matter because everything that you develop using trolltechs gui builder must be open unless you have their commercial liscense. That doesnt bother me, because I have never made a dime programming in the first place. Too many overseas players who work for $9000 a year.
