Environment Variables?

Post by root » Wed Jan 06, 2021 4:47 pm

I'm on Linux Mint 20. It comes standard with wxWidgets 3.0. I've installed 3.1.4 and can't figure out how to get CodeLite/wxCrafter to use it. I looked at the system environment variables and there's nothing in them for wxWidgets 3.0, as changing that, I figured, would be the simplest solution. So I'm still using 3.0 but would like to be using 3.1.4. Any help?
Win X Pro / CodeLite 14.0 / wxCrafter 2.9 / wxWidgets-3.1.4 / MinGW-10.2.0

Linux Mint 20.0 / CodeLite 14.0 / wxCrafter 2.9 / wxWidgets-3.0 & 3.1.4 / GCC-9.2.0

Actually, the simplest solution is to edit the project's compiler and linker settings to point to /full/path/to/preferred/wx-config instead of just wx-config. But you could probably do something similar in either the global or the project's environment variables setting.

More generally, Mint is debian-derived and so has update-alternatives available. You can change the default wx by doing, in a terminal:
sudo update-alternatives --config wx-config
then following the instructions. Your project should then automatically use that wx version.
