1.3.11 Compile Problem Related to wx headers

Permanent link to this post Posted by ksur » Mon Mar 29, 2010 3:42 am

I am compiling Audacity 1.3.11 on Ubuntu 9.10 (configured successfully). An error occurs at the make stage because the included files "wx/defs.h" "wx/filedlg.h" and "wx/generic/filedlgg" cannot be found. The include statements occur in lib-src/FileDialog.h and lib-src/gtk/FileDialogPrivate.h.

Here is the error

Any suggestions on how to fix this error, or check to check if the problem is due to wxWidgets?

Have you checked the "config.log" file? (should be in the main Audacity source code folder)
9/10 questions are answered in the FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ)

One thing you should always check and report with a "file not found" error: does the file actually exist on your system? I'd look first in the include paths (the paths in the gcc line after "-I" (that's a capital i, not a lowercase L)), and then search in /usr/include, /usr/local/include, /usr/lib, /usr/local/lib.

The gcc line shows WxWidgets include paths in /usr/local -- have you made your own build of wxWidgets?
