CB on Ubuntu 7.04
« on: August 05, 2007, 03:01:13 am »
I recently this week installed moka 5 (moka5.com) on one of my winXP systems.  I then added Ubuntu 7.04 player, and I am configuring it.  In fact, I am typing this using Ubuntu now.  It works just like a normal Linux system, and on this machine, I don't see any slowdown.  I recommend trying it if you have the hard drive and cpu for it.  I have successfully installed C::B for Ubuntu 7.04 & the wxWidgets libs per the direction in the wiki.  I have compiled and ran the basic console app successfully.  This is my first time running C::B on a Linux system.  I don't even know how to go about setting up the directories for other libraries (like wxWIdgets) in the C::B environment.  I don't even know if I have to.  Any suggestions?

I definately like having access to Linux this easily.

If I recall correctly, the wxWidgets wizard uses `wx-config` under Linux. Have you tried it out yet?
Edit: Yep, I recalled correctly.

P.S. - I'm glad you've discovered the joys of virtual machines. :)

You have to select and specify couple of options in the wizard and wizard will do the rest. :)

It's one of the best way to try and learn other OS. I've a number of Virtual Machines installed in my PC and I would recommend it. :)
Be a part of the solution, not a part of the problem.

It works.  First, I tried wx-config --version, and that returned 2.8.4.  Then I created, built, and ran a default wxWidgets project successfully!  It's great.  My only annoyance with this virtual machine is that it will not keep the right date and time!  Oh well.  Thanks for the assist.
