[SOLVED] 'AM_OPTIONS_WXCONFIG' not found in library
« on: September 15, 2019, 06:30:05 pm »
Hello folks.
I`m trying to build C::B on an Arch Linux machine, but the build process refuses to go further after it encounters that AM_OPTIONS_WXCONFIG line in the build script.
I have already tried all three methods listed here, including wx-config which I converted to Arch package format with debtap.
None of them worked.

What should I do to resolve this?

Did you install wxWidgets/wxGTK?
NOTE: Installed means installed it does not mean building it!

So wxGTK seems to be installed but that does not help.

If you mess up your system it is your job to clean it up.

You have at least two wxWidgets versions installed, forcefully installed a selfmade wx-config package and yet Automake is looking for a third one which apparently is not installed. If you use multiple wxWidgets versions installation order is important because it determines which one gets used by default. Your selfmade package can make the situation worse if it doesn't follow the style of your distro. Maybe you are also reusing the source tree which has some cached values that mess up things even further.

If you are lucky it is enough to pass the wx-config of the wxWidgets version you want to use to the configure script (it has a nice help switch that shows you all options it supports). If your are not so lucky you need to get rid at least of all dev-packages of wxWidgets and your selfmade package and reinstall only the dev-package of the wxWidgets version you want to use. And if that doesn't help there is always mv / /dev/null.

  • What gave you the idea I messed my system up? Everything I install, I install via the standard package manager, converting packages to its native format if needed.
  • Do you actually have to be so toxic in response to a simple question of what went wrong with the build?

What does the command below return?
Code: [Select]
wx-config --list


Edit: What version of Code::Blocks are you trying to build?
Edit2: What exactly are the commands you are using?
Edit3: What does the command below return?
Code: [Select]
/usr/bin/wx-config-gtk3 --list

My guess is either that the wxwin.m4 file is not found or you have something in the toolchain (m4, autotools, automake) which is too new and we don't support it... A third options is that you have something cached from a previous failed run.

Installed wxgtk2-dev and wxgtk3-dev.

Where in the world did you find wxgtk2-dev and wxgtk3-dev for ArchLinux?

My best guess at the correct directions

Quote
# Install CB from source on ArchLinux.txt
#
# based on
#   https://git.archlinux.org/svntogit/community.git/tree/trunk/PKGBUILD?h=packages/codeblocks
#   http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php/Installing_Code::Blocks_from_source_on_Arch_Linux

#  Install svn and other needed libraries
$  pacman -S --needed zip xterm svn hunspell boost imagemagick wxgtk3

#  Create devel folder
$  mkdir -p ~/devel

#  Change to devel folder
$  cd ~/devel

#  Download Codeblocks code
$  svn checkout https://svn.code.sf.net/p/codeblocks/code/trunk codeblocks-code

#  Go into codeblocks folder
$  cd codeblocks-code

$  ./bootstrap

#  configure. We can not use the FileManager plugin because of the missing gamin library (08.2019)
$  ./configure  --prefix=/opt/codeblocks --with-wx-config=/usr/bin/wx-config-gtk3 --with-contrib-plugins=all,-FileManager

$  make

#  Now install codeblocks to /opt/codeblocks
$  make install

#  Start codeblocks
$  /opt/codeblocks/bin/codeblocks

# means comment
$ means command that needs ran

Edit: You will likely need to uninstall all the debtap stuff you installed related to wxWidgets and Code::Blocks before these directions are likely to work.
If possible, I would also uninstall wxGTK3 before trying these directions.

Re: 'AM_OPTIONS_WXCONFIG' not found in library

What does the command below return?
Code: [Select]
$ wx-config --list

    Default config is gtk2-unicode-3.0

  Default config will be used for output

  Alternate matches:
    gtk3-unicode-3.0

$ wx-config-gtk3 --list

    Default config is gtk3-unicode-3.0

  Default config will be used for output

  Alternate matches:
    gtk2-unicode-3.0


Where in the world did you find wxgtk2-dev and wxgtk3-dev for ArchLinux?
In AUR, of course:
Code: [Select]
$ pacaur -Ss wxgtk2-dev
aur/wxgtk2-dev 3.1.3-1 (5, 0.98657)
    GTK+2 implementation of wxWidgets API for GUI

$ pacaur -Ss wxgtk3-dev
aur/wxgtk3-dev 3.1.3-1 (5, 0.98657)
    GTK+3 implementation of wxWidgets API for GUI


My best guess at the correct directions
Thank you! Will try right now.


[PS#1] wxwin.m4 seems to be present:
Code: [Select]
$ pacaur -Qo /usr/share/aclocal/wxwin.m4
/usr/share/aclocal/wxwin.m4 is owned by wxgtk-common 3.0.4-2


[PS#2]
you have something in the toolchain (m4, autotools, automake) which is too new and we don't support it
I guess this is the most probable explanation, for Arch always has the most bleeding-edge versions.
Which versions should I install to build?

These work for me.
Code: [Select]
[email protected] ~/p/c/git> autoconf --version
autoconf (GNU Autoconf) 2.69
[email protected] ~/p/c/git> automake --version
automake (GNU automake) 1.9.6
[email protected] ~/p/c/git> m4 --version
m4 (GNU M4) 1.4.18
