Linux C::B Nightly r12639 variable expansion query/help
« on: January 15, 2022, 08:20:33 am »
On my Linux Mint 20.3 and Xubuntu 20.04 virtual box guests I cannot get the <Add option="`$(WX_CONFIG) --cflags`" /> to work with the Nightly r12639, it does not expand to anything (aka empty string) in the build log and therefore I cannot use the CodeBlocks_wx30-unix.cbp to build C::B without hacking the project file to manually change the $(WX_CONFIG) to wx_config. Hopefully it's just a config issues somewhere, but I cannot find it.

Do other linux devs using r12639 have any issues with <Add option="`$(WX_CONFIG) --cflags`" />  ? If you have a different C::B version do you have an issue or not? Please post you result and which SVN version so I can go back to a working version and then start bisecting until I find the issue, unless it's my setup.....

Below are details of the issue debugging output are below:

It was my setup. To fix it I had to do the following:
    curl -O http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/w/wxwidgets3.0/libwxgtk3.0-gtk3-dev_3.0.5.1+dfsg-2_amd64.deb
    dpkg -i libwxgtk3.0-gtk3-dev_3.0.5.1+dfsg-2_amd64.deb

Once I have got C::B building on LM 20.3 I will need to supply a new WIKI page for setting it up for development.

This is not the way how to install packages from repositories, you better add the required repositories to your configuration and download the package through apt. Manually installing like this is asking for trouble.
