This page gives links to the available binary packages for CodeLite, and to the free version of its RAD plugin wxCrafter.
Note that the CodeLite packages now incorporate the wx3.0.1 libraries that CodeLite requires, so there should no longer be any need to install wx3.0 separately. Of course you can if you wish, and you'll need to do so to build apps against wx3.
To download CodeLite for Debian based systems (Debian / Mint / Ubuntu etc):
sudo apt-key adv --fetch-keys http://repos.codelite.org/CodeLite.asc
For example, if you use Ubuntu utopic (14.10), either open
from Table 1, or else use
sudo apt-add-repository 'deb http://repos.codelite.org/ubuntu/ utopic universe'
Table 1: CodeLite repositories
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install codelite wxcrafter
The ubuntu packages should also work on other *buntus, and on derivatives e.g. Mint.
There are rpms available for fedora 20 and openSUSE 13.1:
First tell rpm about the CodeLite public key. As superuser do:
rpm --import http://repos.codelite.org/CodeLite.asc
Then either download the required rpm and install it as usual, or download and install in one step; e.g.
rpm -Uvh http://repos.codelite.org/rpms/fedora/codelite-6.1-1.fc20.x86_64.rpm
There are also source rpms for fedora and openSUSE. Note that these do not contain wxCrafter. To build binary rpms containing wxCrafter, you'll need to download the appropriate wxCrafter.so, plus the file wxgui.zip that contains its bitmaps, and put both in the rpmbuild/SOURCES dir before you build.
CodeLite is available on ArchLinux via their AUR repository
To install codelite:
yaourt -S codelite
wxCrafter for ArchLinux can be installed using the following instructions
See this page for links to packages from previous CodeLite and wxCrafter releases.
The above packages supply the CodeLite IDE. Also available is the free version of wxCrafter, its gui-designer plugin. There are three types of 32 and 64 bit packages here: for debian wheezy and ubuntu versions 13.10 (saucy) and 14.04 (trusty); for ubuntu 14.10 (utopic); and for fedora 20 and openSUSE 12.3. It's possible that some of these will work on earlier distro versions too, but only if you build CodeLite yourself against wxWidgets-3.0.1 (even then that's untested, but the utopic ones are likeliest to work). Instead you can find older wxCrafter packages via the previous-releases pages.
Note that on openSUSE 12.3 both CodeLite and wxCrafter are NOT currently built using the openSUSE wx2.9.4, as that's too old for this CodeLite version; as in previous CodeLite versions the fedora wxCrafter packages work. Similarly the fedora packages don't use the new fedora wxGTK3 packages as they are only available in 'updates'. However the utopic ones are built against the official wx3.0.1 packages.
Download and install them with alongside CodeLite (it will do no harm to install wxCrafter without CodeLite, but it won't run!).
Note that these wxCrafter packages are built against wxWidgets-3.0.1, and so are unlikely to work with CodeLite versions <6.1.
What if you don't want to use a package, or there isn't one that your distro supports? If you want to build your own CodeLite, here are the wxCrafter libs that the packages contain.
You will also need the file wxgui.zip that contains some of wxCrafter's bitmaps. This needs to end up inside the CodeLite 'share' installation (e.g. in /usr/share/codelite/). The wxCrafter.so itself needs to go in CodeLite's 'plugins' dir, which by default is probably /usr/lib/codelite/.
