qbasic?  Isn't that DOS based?  If so, this will probably help:
  $ apt-cache search dosemu|sort
  cam - Cpu's Audio Mixer for Linux
  console-cyrillic - Better Cyrillic support for Linux console.
  dosemu - The Linux DOS Emulator
  dosemu-freedos - FreeDOS package for DOSEMU
  lg-issue18 - Issue 18 of the Linux Gazette.
  xfonts-dosemu - VGA font for the DOS Emulator
  xfonts-terminus-dos - Fixed-width fonts for DOS encodings
