installing codeblocks 8.02 in ubuntu 8.10 intrepid ibex

Just open a terminal and punch in:

  
  
sudo apt-get install libcodeblocks0 codeblocks libwxsmithlib0 codeblocks-contrib  freeglut3-dev libasound2-dev libxmu-dev libxxf86vm-dev g++ libgl1-mesa-dev libglu1-mesa-dev libraw1394-dev libpoco-dev build-essential  
   

And you should be all set. :!: If you used the “install_codeblocks.sh” script that came with release 0.05 before trying this you might get some unmet dependencies as the wx-widgets repository for intrepid isn’t available as of now Feb. '09. To fix that you’ll need to turn off the http://apt.wxwidgets.org/ and http://lgp203.free.fr repositories in the Settings/Repositories/Third-Party Software menu of Synaptic. Press ‘Reload’, close Synaptic and try the instructions above again.
.
This has happened before. The intrepid version of wx-widgets should eventually come online making the “install_codeblocks.sh” script valid again.

ummmm

when i installed codeblocks and of_ using the script, which was a long time ago, i had to add this source to get it the widgets thingy:

http://apt.wxwidgets.org/
hardy-wx
main

it’s the one i still use
and i still get updates.

yes, the install_codeblocks script guesses the ubuntu version codename and uses that to set the repositories, codeblocks one seems to be updated as soon as a new ubuntu release appears, but wxwidgets had the same problem with hardy, then they created them some time after the release but now it seems they’ve stopped at hardy, so for 0.06 i’ve left that one in hardy to avoid problems.

it is good to see ubuntu linux documentation to help
