(Gnome) Trying to compile wxPdfDocument ... and failing.

Post by Radek » Tue Jun 26, 2012 2:17 pm

fonconfig.h is missing during "make". Subsequently, many symbols, obviously related to font properties (FC_SLANT_OBLIQUE, and so on) are not defined. Error, pdffontmanager.cpp has not compiled, the end. There seems to be no fontconfig.h on my comp. I have browsed the web and found several files fontconfig.h but I don't know which one should I get or what should I install. Does someone know, what to do?

Debian 6, Squeeze, 32-bit Intel, Gnome, Gtk 2.0.

Obviously the fontconfig package (or at least its C/C++ header files) is not installed on your system. I don't know Debian, but on many Linux systems fontconfig is installed by default. Seems not to be the case for your system. So probably you should use the package manager of your system to install fontconfig on your system.

Regards,

Ulrich

Thanks, Ulrich. fontconfig was installed but not the development package (fontconfig1-dev, static libraries and headers). After installing fontconfig1-dev, wxPdfDocument compiled and installed flawlessly. Now, I am going to see, whether I can make pdf's with it :mrgreen:
