Debugger won't start with F8 - option is grayed out
« on: July 17, 2009, 06:08:29 pm »
I am sure this has already been posted but I need some help with getting the debugger working.  The option is grayed out for me in the debugger menu option.  I am running fedora with gdb and gcc installed.  Any help with pointing me in the right direction for the configuration documentation would be awesome.  Thanks (I am new to codeblocks BTW).

Do you try to debug a single file ?

Code::Blocks only supports debugging in a project, not for single files.

Unfortunately after 5 years, the development team has been unable to fix this bug. Is that on the to-do list yet?

It is on the todo list but it is very low priority. If you want to debug something either make a project or use standalone gdb...
