Re: Problem compiling Hello World example

I only downloaded and installed the wxwidget source files (by doing make and make install). Oh, that's OK then. The packages I mentioned are part of the official Mint wxWidgets packages; but building from source is fine too. How are you trying to build the example? In a terminal? If so, what is you...

Re: Problem compiling Hello World example

Hi,

Do you also have the appropriate wx development package(s) installed? That might be libwxgtk3.0-dev or libwxgtk3.0-gtk3-dev (and optionally the corresponding webkit and media -devs) and its dependencies.

Regards,

David

Re: GTK2 and GTK3 and webview

See one of your other threads.

As in programming, multiple threads can be useful, but also confusing and are hard to keep track of ;) .

Re: Options is setup.h

Hi, You forgot to say which platform you use but, from your other posts, I suspect it's Linux. If so, yes, you need to run configure again and rebuild, after installing any necessary dependencies. If you are using a recent version of your distro (which you should also have told us about) you will al...

Re: Fontconfig and Pango Errors when launching program but not with Samples

...I did install wxWidgets correctly... How? Self-built (if so, what were your configure options and to where did you install it?) or is it the official ubuntu wxGTK packages (which of course are shared libs)? The issue is that scintilla is a deprecated package and is built inside of stc these days...

Re: Fontconfig and Pango Errors when launching program but not with Samples

Hi, I have little cmake experience (and I wish I had less!). It can be made to work with wxWidgets, but it's not trivially easy. Some suggestions: 1) Do you have >1 wxWidgets build/version installed? If so, make sure you are using the 'correct' one (e.g. by setting your $PATH correctly, or doing sud...

Re: WxSVG can rasterize?

Hi, I already tried nanosvg and librsvg I had a similar requirement a couple of years ago, to implement image preview for .svg files in 4Pane. I forget why I couldn't simply use just librsvg direct, but I succeeded by also copying and truncating code from the rsvn binary. I've attached that file; yo...

Igor, perhaps you too should find out more about what an AppImage is.

Hi, (I moved the topic here, rather than to the General Development subforum, because you mentioned Linux. If you really mean 'all platforms', I'll move it to General Development.)

Re: Ubuntu 20 - Web extension not found in "/usr/local/lib/wx/3.1.3/web-extensions

I really need to understand why a static linking will cause this problem? No you don't ;) (though I agree it's a wx bug and it would be nice if it were fixed). Trying to make a program work on 'Linux' by statically-linking it to wx will not be a success. That's because 'Linux' isn't a single 'thing...

Re: problems with wx-config from codelite's 3.1.3 on ubuntu 20.04

Hi, Thank you for reporting this. Mint is usually happy to run the corresponding ubuntu packages, but clearly this is an exception. It took me a long time, but I finally realised that it's failing on Mint because of a '/bin/' '/usr/bin/' issue. Mint 20 has its grep and egrep in /bin/ while ubuntu 20...

Re: wxGTK 3.0 and 3.1 debs and rpms available

wx3.1.4 has now been released. As wx3.1 is a development branch distros are very unlikely to package it, so I've again created packages for current and recent versions of the major distros. For debian buster, and ubuntu bionic and focal there are repositories. There are rpms for fedora 32; and for o...

Re: Error while loading shared libraries: libwx_gtk3u_core-3.1.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or dir

I also noticed that wxWidgets has no uninstall guide The usual answer is to do, in the build dir: sudo make uninstall though IIRC it doesn't do much for wx installs. OTOH, for your problem, there's no great harm in leaving the 3.1.4 install there. I want to get the libraries of wxWidgets 3.1.3, how...

Re: Error while loading shared libraries: libwx_gtk3u_core-3.1.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or dir

Please how can I get wxWidgets 3.1.3 libraries installed? Where did the older install's wx3.1.3 come from? Did you build it yourself? If so, just get the source-code and build it in your current install. Or was it from https://wiki.codelite.org/pmwiki.php/Main/WxWidgets313Binaries ? If so, the debs...
