problem with wxWidgets support library

I am attempting to install audacity-1.3.12-beta on a 64 bit laptop running fedora version 12.

The web page indicates that I need wxWidgets - 2.8.10.

I was only able to find the wxWidget code for 2.8.11

I was able to compile and install wxWidget-2.8.11 without any error message.

It appears that all the wxWidget library files are installed in /usr/local/lib.

However, when I try to run the Audacity source configuration script , it gives me an error message “can not find wxWidgets v2.8.x or later”

I am not sure what to do next.

It appears that the wxWidget installation may have put files in some location that is different from where the audacity build script is looking for them.

I’ve moved this to the appropriate “Compiling Audacity” Forum.

I assume that you want to compile Audacity rather than install the appropriate 1.3.12 package supplied by Fedora.

If you mean, yes 1.3.12 which is still the current Beta release required 2.8.10 (but possibly will work with 2.8.11). Our development code 1.3.13 alpha now requires 2.8.11.

If you wanted 2.8.10 you can get it here using the “Mirrors” link at the bottom of .

Have you read Compiling Audacity for Beginners? Assuming you have actually installed wxwidgets (sudo make install), then you may want to add /usr/local/lib to your LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

I’m also assuming you have installed a wxgtk-dev package with the deveopment headers without which you won’t be able to compile Audacity. You should be able to use yum to install a suitable package if you have not already.
