where is wx-config on Ubuntu

Do you have a typical platform dependent issue you're battling with ? Ask it here. Make sure you mention your platform, compiler, and wxWidgets version.

where is wx-config on Ubuntu

Post by wwuster » Sat Jan 14, 2006 10:51 am

I'm running ubuntu 5.1 and have installed wx2.6* using synaptic. But I cannot find wx-config. Where is that?

wx-config: /usr/local/bin/wx-config

This is on Suse10 after a make && make install. I think you are better off making the binaries yourself. Much more you can specify.

my /usr/local/bin is empty.

I must not have wxWidgets installed correctly or fully. I just used synaptic (apt) to install wx2.6*
I have also installed libgtk2.0-0

Perhaps there's something else I need to do but I don't know what. How do you configure wxWidgets after you "install" it (in Ubuntu)? Eg, I'd like to enable opengl, mediactrl etc.

Try to use gtk-confing if any.

I tried to install wxWidgets manually

wx2.6-headers_2.6.1.1ubuntu3_i386.deb
libwxgtk2.6-0_2.6.1.1ubuntu3_i386.deb

and wx-config worked fine for me.

I'm not sure how to do it in synaptic. I had to manually build it from source and install it with 'make install'. It works fine, but I'd like to know how to do it the 'official' way in Ubuntu.

You can always download pre-built packages from Ubuntu's web-site and install them manually. I downloaded wxWidgest packages from http://www.packages.ubuntu.com/hoary

Try to install libwxgtk2.6-dev. That should get you going.

I don't understand why the wxWidgets team hasn't included a pkg-config file.
That would help a lot to not requiere to use wx-config, which in most cases are in a separate package.

As you see, in Ubuntu for example, "wx-config" its included in the package "wx-common". It's simply not intuitive, as this thread demonstrates. :(
