Title: Install 12.11 on (K)Ubuntu
Post by: Xyphos on December 13, 2012, 08:37:59 pm
Help. I have a C++ project that I was working on in Windows(7) using CB v12.11

I've been using CB for about a year now and I must say that I LOVE it better then Visual C.

however, a need for a linux binary has arisen and I'm not totally nix savvy.

when I tried the normal installation using apt
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install codeblocksit installed v10.05 --- not what I wanted, so I purged it and downloaded the .tar.bz from the downloads page, and I just followed normal procedure
Code: [Select]
tar -xjvf tarballname.tar.bz2
but now I'm left with a ****load of .deb files - there's no makefile, no config, etc.

how would I go about building/installing all these deb files without having to open each one in "Software Center" and hope there's no broken dependencies?

I mean, there's got to be an easier way; the package creator(s) wouldn't make it this difficult on purpose would they?

For the debian packages, you can use my repo.
Follow the instructions on my site: http://apt.jenslody.de/ (http://apt.jenslody.de/) , but use "release" instead of "main" in "/etc/apt/sources.list[.d]" .

Depending on your version of Ubuntu, the packages can be used or not, see the notes on my site.

Thanks Jen!

I saw the link to your repo on the downloads page but it was a dead link that didn't work.
thankyou for providing a working link.



EDIT: now I have a new problem:
Code: [Select]

Should be fixed now!
