Lubuntu 20.04, codeblocks failing to start
« on: May 20, 2020, 12:45:56 pm »
Hello all,

been doing some C::B dev work, and just upgraded to (L)Ubuntu 20.04 and everything codeblocks related has stopped working.

On running CB I get

Code: [Select]
codeblocks: error while loading shared libraries: libwx_gtk2u_aui-3.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
This is with the vanilla codeblocks installed from the Ubuntu repo.

So CB is looking for GTK2, where 20.04 does not have any GTK2 WX stuff in its repos at all, all GTK3.

Happy to build from my sources (but why doesn't the CB in the repo work?), but get compile failures on my current tree, I suspect I need to rerun autoconf or something to tell it to use GTK3? Any ideas on how to get it working gratefully received.

Jimbo

Have you tired the PPA from Obfuscated?

My PPA doesn't yet provide 20.04 builds.

@jimbo: What packages are you using? Provided by us, by ubuntu? If it is the latter, then you should report it. If it is the former - we don't yet provide packages for 20.04. :(

My Codeblocks can't run c programs but it runs c++ programs.
