Trying CodeBlocks for the fisr time; freezing issues.
« on: July 20, 2018, 11:31:02 pm »
System: Ubuntu 16.04

I recently installed C::B via: sudo apt install codeblocks and everything seemed to have gone fine. I have used this program before on a windows machine without any problems. Anyways, for some reason windows that I open randomly freeze. For instance, if I create a new file and attempt to save it I am presented with a semi-blank window. I say semi-blank because it shows the x for close file and square to maximize (which dont work) and it says Save File; also the scroll bar sticks around but doesn't work.

Most probably you're using version 16.01 and not 17.12.
Switch to 17.12 and most probably the problems would go away.

https://packages.ubuntu.com/xenial/devel/codeblocks It shows codeblocks version 13.12

I am sorry that it took so long for me to reply, I have been on vacation. So apparently, I downloaded version 13 of C::B. Is there a way to update to the latest version from the terminal?

We provide packages for some of the ubuntu versions. Check the download section if there is for yours. If not you have to build from source. It is not hard.

See here for the two important commands: https://github.com/obfuscated/codeblocks_sf/blob/master/.travis.yml (at the end of the file, ./bootstrap and dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc).
The file also list all the dependencies you must have.
