Not really. I assume you followed the installation instructions in install-rpi.txt exactly.

One possibility, I suppose, is that when you extracted the contents of bbc-rpi.zip it didn't create the directory structure correctly. Check that you have a subdirectory called lib and that in that subdirectory there is a file dlglib.bbc. If that file is missing you would get the error you report.

Just checked lib directory, I don't have diglib.bbc subdirectory, so I presume thats the fault. I've just checked, I did follow install-rpi.txt, and I repeated it a second time. Can I manually add the directories?

Just a thought, what is the subdirectory in, I assumed the filesystem lib. Also there is nothing in the oldconffiles directory that has been created.

Have now found diglib.bbc, in downloads/lib directory. All .bbc files appear to be in this directory.

How did you extract the zip file? I simply ran the following command and it created all the subdirectories correctly for me:

Code:
unzip bbc-rpi.zip 

Is that what you did?

Ah, right. unzip will always extract to the 'current' directory unless you tell it otherwise. I created a new directory for the purpose (~/BBCBASIC) but leaving everything in ~/Downloads is fine if you don't think it's in danger of becoming too cluttered.
