[suggestion]improving the command line tools
« on: May 07, 2011, 06:26:17 pm »
wo!! before I have a try, I can't believe it's so powerful a IDE. but I discovered a little problem when I use it to build the project in command line( or terminal) under linux(ubuntu), such as this:

codeblocks --rebuild myproj.cbp --target="Debug"

the application pop a error message that: Error: Unable to initialize gtk, is DISPLAY set properly?

I think it is noway to work like that, I have try every options, but still can't fix this problem

it's quite of disappointing, if I can't build my project under the commandline or bash shell and have to force me using the GUI mode

the main reason for this is that, I plan to create my codeblocks project under windows, and then submit to linux system, and then I will use a ssh client to remote connect to the linux, and test my codeblocks projects under bash shell

Unfortunately, C::B uses wxGTK, which depends on X11 running.
There is work done to fix this problem, but it have not been finished.

Here is the branch: http://svn.berlios.de/wsvn/codeblocks/branches/codeblocks_console/?rev=7141&peg=7141#a9d0bd8ef7e401af0a01b460d3e4bea4d

Hello,

I have just used ssh to connect to a raspberry pi only to find out even typing

codeblocks --help

in the shell will produce the same error message. I agree that Codeblocks is great, but it would be fantastic if this would work as-well. ;-)

This thread is from 4 years ago, has there been any progress in the meanwhile? If you can point me to the latest branch, maybe I can join in to fix this!?

Everything is in master. But the issue is not fixed.
If you have the x11 libs installed on your pi then you can probably use ssh -X (x11 tunelling) to workaround the problem.
