After getting the hang of using the Ubuntu/Debian "apt-get" command, I decided to try it with an application I tried to install onto my old Redhat distro. It installed, and works great! This is a great alternative to VB for Linux.

I made a form, and to see how it looked, I pressed the "|>" key (play), and it compiled fine (I think). The window appeared, as did the Gambas Console, with the message in it below:

X Error: BadDevice, invalid or uninitialized input device 166
  Major opcode:  144
  Minor opcode:  3
  Resource id:  0x0
Failed to open device
X Error: BadDevice, invalid or uninitialized input device 166
  Major opcode:  144
  Minor opcode:  3
  Resource id:  0x0
Failed to open device

Is this normal, or is it something that needs to be fixed?

I think those errors are related to the content in your xorg.conf file. What it looks like is that Gambas is trying to access a device referenced/listed in the xorg.conf file, and it's non-existent. And as long as everything worked, no I don't think you need to worry about it too much. (I'm guessing that Ubuntu has some sort of default Xorg file that it creates on every installation.)
