threadsearch not found -- CodeBlocks 20.03 on Ubuntu 20.04
« on: April 05, 2021, 06:15:20 pm »
Having used CodeBlocks on Windows for years, I recently set up an Ubuntu system and installed CodeBlocks on it.
I first installed it using the Software Updater, which did not work at all -- it said it installed it, but I could not find it on the system.
Then I downloaded the package and did an apt install from the command line.
When I tried to use it, I found it is missing the ThreadSearch plugin, and I find no way to install/enable it.
I searched the documentation, which had some cryptic statements about it may not be there on some current configurations.
Has this plugin been disabled? Do I need to do something to access it? The methods mentioned in the documentation all lead to dead ends.
HELP.

install codeblocks-contrib.
(most of the time I ignore long posts)

Thanks much. That worked fine.
BTW, as to your footnotes, I did do a full search and poked around a lot before posting.
Could not find the answer or even a similar question.
I felt stupid not figuring it out myself, but am wondering how I was supposed to have done so.
Apologies for wasting your time.
