Can you make a persistent Live USB flash drive using the Startup Disk Creator from the Live CD and then install Gambas to it?

i dont want to create a live system... this will be used as a launcher to my game project in blender.. it will be like portable gimp or something else in windows...

Normally you need an installation of Gambas runtime to run a 'compiled' Gambas application. Looking at the Gambas forum, you can define a GB_DIR environment variable that points at the Gambas installation directory.

With that, you should be able to run Gambas from your USB key, provided that the destination O.S. has all the needed shared libraries installed.

You can put all the needed shared libraries on the USB key too, and run Gambas completely, by using the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable.

It sounds complicated and I haven't tried it myself.
