Code::blocks 13.12 in Ubuntu 12.04
« on: June 12, 2014, 04:29:18 pm »
Code::Blocks 13.12 couldn't be installed on 12.04 using the provided deb packages in the downloads section because of the dependency libfontconfig1 >= 2.9.x.x.
Trying to install it that way breaks the packaging system , but as it comes out I was able to use codeblocks , it appeared in the app menu and I could run it well even though I have libfontconfig 2.8.x , less than the version specified in the dependency of the package.
So , I tried the repository mentioned in that download page (pasgui 's), as it comes out it only has builds for trusty (14.04) .
So , the only way i could do install it is by compiling it myself. (It took a heck of  time though  :) ).
Now I still don't have the plugins , though I'll find something.
I created this post to let the developers' and the maintainers know of this issue,so they can look into this. (maybe change libfontconfig1 dependency version.)

Try mine. Links in my sig. (I haven't been keeping up with the last few C::B nightlies in my nightly ppa, but the daily ppa is updated every day so long as there are changes to the C::B source repository)

To get the plugins, prepare the compilation with ./configure --with-contrib-plugins=all

Thanks , I tried ./configure --help but I got lost  ;D.

Thank you too , but I have already compiled it myself , but hey , if you are regular it should be on the download page to help others. (instead of that pasgui's)
