[SOLVED] Code::Blocks 13.12 doesn't build on ubuntu linux
« on: April 29, 2018, 08:15:45 pm »

This message keeps popping up. It doesn't build neither .c or .cpp files.
The compilers are installed.
gcc is already the newest version (4:5.3.1-1ubuntu1).
g++ is already the newest version (4:5.3.1-1ubuntu1).

On Compiler>Toolchain executables the path to Compilers installation directory is on /usr
but i noticed that the compilers are on /user/bin. I thought that this might be the problem
so i changed the path of the installation directory to /user/bin but it din't fix anything.
Also if i press auto-detect it changes it back to /user, so i don't know which one is correct.



A little help will be appreciated.

What happens if you put the file in a folder that has no Greek letters, nor whitespaces in it?
Have you considered updating to a more recent release?
13.12 is almost 5 years old...

Well my friend, you were right!!
If i save the file in my home folder, the only one with an English name, it works. Or in another folder inside it, except if it's name is in Greek, as you said,
in which case it won't build. Thank you. I would have never thought that the folder name could have been the problem....

i would like to know where the build fails... Can you post a full build log from a project with Greek letters like described here:
