This page gives links to the available binary packages for CodeLite 8.0, and to the free version of its RAD plugin wxCrafter.
Note that (apart from fedora 22) the CodeLite packages now incorporate the wx3.0.2 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.
If you have an older version of CodeLite installed from Ubuntu or Debian repositories, uninstall it first:
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 vivid (15.04), either open
from Table 1, or else use
sudo apt-add-repository 'deb http://repos.codelite.org/ubuntu/ vivid 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 21 and 22, and openSUSE 13.2:
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-8.0-1.fc22.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 five types of 32 and 64 bit packages here: for debian jessie and ubuntu vivid; for debian wheezy and ubuntu versions 14.04 (trusty) and 14.10 (utopic); for fedora 21; for fedora 22; and for openSUSE 13.2. 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 or 3.0.2 (even then that's untested, but the wheezy ones are likeliest to work). Instead you can find older wxCrafter packages via the previous-releases pages.
Note that the fedora 21 binaries don't use the new fedora wxGTK3 packages as wxGTK3-devel doesn't provide a useful wx-config symlink (so the normal CodeLite/wxCrafter build process won't work). However for fedora 22 I've worked-around this, and the wxGTK3 package is used. The openSUSE 13.2 ones are built against the official wx3.0.1 packages (as are the corresponding CodeLite packages). The jessie packages are also built against the jessie wx3.0.2 packages; note however that they will only work with CodeLite 8.0 and possibly 7.0, not with the CodeLite 6.1 packages in the official jessie repo.
In the following table I've provided direct links to the debian/ubuntu packages, but these are more easily installed from the CodeLite repos in the usual way.
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-3.0.2, 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/.
