You need X if you use qt or gtk components, but you can do console applications without any problem. In fact there are some very interesting components as net.curl, pcre, db.mysql, etc. that I use everyday in some servers without using X. Maybe your impression is due to the fact of that usually the gambas-ide is identified with the gambas project, but you can write gambas applications with vi. Anyway I would use the excellent gambas-ide even to write cgi or console applications as it will help you to write them all the time. > Using Basic is of great use to me in doing CGI and system scripts.

And you can also write pure basic applications without using any component, in that case you only will need the gambas2-runtime package to execute them. By the way, the www.gambasdoc.org site is itself written in gambas too ;-) Hope this helps. Regards. José L.
