wxWidgets 3.0.1 Packages and Repositories

This archive page is for the wx3.0.1 release. For the latest version, see WxWidgets30Binaries. For wx3.0.0, see OlderWxWidgetsBinaries.

CodeLite requires wxWidgets >=3.0.0, which isn't easily available as binaries. I've therefore built packages for the commonest distros.

The packages are signed with the CodeLite public key so, if you haven't done so before, you should tell apt or rpm about this by doing as superuser (su or sudo depending on your distro):

 apt-key adv --fetch-keys http://repos.codelite.org/CodeLite.asc


 rpm --import http://repos.codelite.org/CodeLite.asc

Ubuntu and debian

If you use ubuntu 14.04 (trusty), please read this section first.

If you use a debian-based distro there are the following wxWidgets repositories available:

wxWidgets Repositories
 RepositoryAvailable VersionsComponent
ubuntuhttp://repos.codelite.org/wx3.0.1/ubuntu/raring saucy trustyuniverse

The ubuntu ones should also work on other *buntus, and on derivatives e.g. Mint.

Now let apt know that the repository exits. If you use an apt front-end e.g. synaptic, tell it to Add a repository, using as data the appropriate entry in the table above.

If you do things by hand, add the appropriate url to /etc/apt/sources.list.
Become superuser and either use a text editor to edit /etc/apt/sources.list, adding a line similar to:

deb http://repos.codelite.org/wx3.0.1/debian/ wheezy libs

or, in a terminal, do something like:

sudo apt-add-repository 'deb http://repos.codelite.org/wx3.0.1/ubuntu/ trusty universe'

The line to add is different for different distros/versions; choose the appropriate one:

wxWidgets Repositories
Distro/releaseLine to append
debian wheezydeb http://repos.codelite.org/wx3.0.1/debian/ wheezy libs
ubuntu raringdeb http://repos.codelite.org/wx3.0.1/ubuntu/ raring universe
ubuntu saucydeb http://repos.codelite.org/wx3.0.1/ubuntu/ saucy universe
ubuntu trustydeb http://repos.codelite.org/wx3.0.1/ubuntu/ trusty universe

You then need update the repositories. In synaptic, click the Reload button. If you're doing things by hand, do:

 apt-get update

Synaptic users can then select and install as usual. By hand you can do:

 apt-get install libwxbase3.0-0-unofficial \
                 libwxbase3.0-dev \
                 libwxgtk3.0-0-unofficial \
                 libwxgtk3.0-dev \
                 wx3.0-headers \
                 wx-common \
                 libwxbase3.0-dbg \
                 libwxgtk3.0-dbg \
                 wx3.0-i18n \
                 wx3.0-examples \

The first 6 of those are required; the others optional (and of decreasing importance).

wx-common and wx3.0-i18n will conflict with the distro's wx2.8 equivalents. That is unlikely to matter too much; but wx-common contains wxrc so, if you use this, be aware that there may be differences after upgrading.

ubuntu 14.04 (trusty)

There are official wx3.0.0 trusty packages in the ubuntu repos. However these don't contain the fix for a nasty mousewheel bug, so for wx3.0.0 I rebuilt them to incorporate that fix, and put them in a separate, less-unofficial repo.

wx3.0.1 now has that fix, of course, so the trusty packages don't need patching and they are back in the 'standard' unofficial repo together with saucy and raring. Perhaps there'll eventually be an official trusty wx3.0.1, but meanwhile these are available. They don't seem to conflict too much with the official wx3.0.0 ;)

Fedora and openSUSE

There are currently rpms available for fedora 20 and openSUSE 13.1. For older releases and wx versions see OlderWxWidgetsBinaries.

wxWidgets rpms

There are also source rpms for Fedora and openSUSE.
Either download the required rpms and install them as usual, or download and install in one step; e.g.

rpm -Uvh http://repos.codelite.org/wx3.0.1/wx3.0-packages/fedora/3.0.1/20/wx-base-unicode-devel-3.0.1-1.i686.rpm

These rpms contain both shared and static builds. Note that they conflict with the wx2.8 devel ones.
