I’m brand new to oF as of this week and have been super impressed at all of its features. I downloaded the code::blocks 64 bit version 0072 to run on my 64 bit Kubuntu Linux machine. While Eclipse CDT is my usual go-to environment for C++, I haven’t figured out how to use oF with Eclipse, so I thought I’d give the makefile route a try in an attempt to learn something new and run oF in a way that is already set up. Everything builds (mostly) nicely in the example files, and some of the programs have really blown me away.
The trouble starts when I try to copy an example project into another directory. As far as I can tell, the only thing that needs changing when copying examples is the directory of the oF files, which I’ve done.
OF_ROOT = ../../..
OF_ROOT = ~/oF
in line 6 of config.make, where the oF directory is in my home folder. The compiler acts like it’s doing something, until it chokes at trying to find Poco/File.h:

I don’t understand why it would fail to find this header file when I copy any of the examples, but everything works great with the examples in their original locations. Does anyone have any insight as to why this might happen? Am I missing something else that I should change in the project files? As far as I know, I haven’t changed any files from the oF libraries that I downloaded. Perhaps a reinstall is worth a try.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I’m excited to get started working with openFrameworks, but there’s still a handful of bugs in my setup that are making me frustrated!
