How to install NEW Code::Blocks?
« on: July 30, 2020, 06:59:37 pm »
One installation way is :
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:damien-moore/codeblocks-stable
sudo apt update
sudo apt install codeblocks

But I think it is very old (2016 year?)
How to install newer, maybe not latest from nightly build but a bit newer.
I have Mint 20.

This http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php/Installing_Code::Blocks_from_source_on_Linux if fresh? WxWidgets are 2.x or 3.x in new versions?
I found: https://www.fosshub.com/Code-Blocks.html

But this archive has many .deb files. I must use gdebi? For all files? Which order?
I use  sudo dpkg -i *.deb but with many conflicts, I must  remove some deb from folder and again. Next I have runtime error: libwx_gtk2u_aui-3.0.so.0 -> want version 2 but in deb are version 3 gtk and wx

Have you tried to go to the download page:
http://codeblocks.org/downloads/26

It provides a recent enough PPA. Also 20.03 is available as a package in ubuntu 20.04, no idea if mint 20 is based on it or not.
(most of the time I ignore long posts)
[strangers don't send me private messages, I'll ignore them; post a topic in the forum, but first read the rules!]
