- Compiling Audacity from source code
As long as “/usr/local/bin” is in your PATH, then the wx-config should be found
when you “cmake” Audacity.
When I “cmake”:
Usage cmake [options] <path-to-source> cmake [options] <path-to-existing-build> Specify a source directory to (re-)generate a build system for it in the current working directory. Specify an existing build directory to re-generate its build system. Run 'cmake --help' for more information.
If the path to wxWidgets isn’t in PATH, then add the option:
> Is the proper <path to> supposed to be ```text -DwxWidgets_CONFIG_EXECUTABLE=/usr/local/bin
entering my name where ‘usr’ is?
entering the path where the wx-config file is installed on my computer?
Of course, all three of these result in the following output:
No such file or directory
What am I supposed to set as the CONFIG_EXECUTABLE?
P. S. I’m attempting to compile audacity manually on wx3.0.2 after failing to find a compatible unofficial PPA build of Audacity 2.1.0 or 2.1.1 or any other version. I was lead to this solution after the version of audacity available via repository (suspiciously compiled to wx2.8.12) wasn’t letting me record overdub tracks.
If anyone has any knowledge regarding any of these issues, it would be extremely helpful. Thank you!
