I would like to build and install wxCurl.
The first step after unpacking the wxCurl is to do "./configure".
Here, i've got this error:
checking for curl-config... no
checking whether libcurl is usable... no
configure: error:
Could not find a valid libCURL installation on your system.

If you do not have libCURL installed or you have an old version
then please install the latest version from

If you have a valid libCURL installed, then please check the config.log
file for more details about the failure of this check.
That is very sad because I've got libcurl3 installed as an ubuntu package:
And I also tried:

Code: Select all

./configure --with-libcurl=/usr/lib
but this was not working :
checking for curl-config... /usr/lib/bin
checking for the version of libcurl... ./configure: line 4359: /usr/lib/bin: No such file or directory

checking for libcurl >= version 7.15.0... no
configure: error:
Do yu have an idea or it is just that wxcurl is not maintained anymore and configure script is rotten ? .....

You need to have the curl-dev installed as well to build against.
