Tips to build wxWidgets C++ for Ubuntu Linux
Here are some notes to help
../configure --enable-unicode --enable-debug
The development files for GTK+ were not found. For GTK+ 2, please
ensure that pkg-config is in the path and that gtk+-2.0.pc is
installed. For GTK+ 1.2 please check that gtk-config is in the path,
and that the version is 1.2.3 or above. Also check that the
libraries returned by 'pkg-config gtk+-2.0 --libs' or 'gtk-config
--libs' are in the LD_LIBRARY_PATH or equivalent.
You may need to do:
apt-get install libgtk2.0-common
Also, edit your Ubuntu bash profile
Add your GTK library to LD_LIBRARY_PATH
ALso, try installing with as this worked for me:
apt-get install libgtk2.0-dev
Install java 8
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-installer
I had serious issues with configuring Netbeans and Eclipse IDEs for wxWidgets, but it
seems CodeLite IDE has preconfigured settings for wxWidgets.
sudo apt-key adv --fetch-keys http://repos.codelite.org/CodeLite.asc
sudo apt-add-repository "deb http://repos.codelite.org/ubuntu/ $(lsb_release -sc) universe"
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install codelite wxcrafter
