I am just getting started in openFrameworks on Ubuntu 13.04 (x64). It appears to install fine using the Code::Blocks instructions from the download page in that the example projects compile and run. The problem is that none of the oF code is available for autocomplete. I googled a bit and someone suggested trying a newer version of oF, so I grabbed the nightly build, but I’m running into the same issue.
Yes I noticed this earlier, should have filed a bug report but wasn’t sure if it was just my system.
So a couple of things. Firstly, the version of Codeblocks that OF pulls in from the repositories in Ubuntu 13.04 has a couple of broken plugins that crash on startup. I found that adding the following ppa and updating fixed this:
Also, to get autocomplete working again, go to Settings->Editor->Code Completion->C/C++ Parser and select “Use one parser for the whole workspace”
Ahhh, such a simple solution - thank you!

Hmm, I had done this, but I had also tried uninstalling the C::B that comes with OF and re-installing with the one that the software center pulls down. I don’t remember which I did first, but one of them fixed the broken plugins. Now I’m guessing it was probably the ppa then.
