gtkmm/button.h file not found

Post by luck_cao » Mon Sep 16, 2019 11:35 am

Hello everyone,

I'm a beginner user of CodeLite, and I downloaded it.

The version of CodeLite is 13.0.2

After I installed on the MacOS 10.14.6,

then I created a workspace and C++ project as following:

Image

Then I got the following error. Find some errors.

I have installed gtkmm3, pkg-config.

Do I still missing anything software or setting?

Thanks a lot for your help!

Can you upload the generated makefile? the file name is "Test1.mk"
In general, the makefile is not able to locate pkg-config
Make sure you have read the HOW TO POST thread

Hello, eranif. Thanks a lot for your answer.

I have uploaded this file.
I changed the extension name from .mk to .cpp because this forum doesn't allow to upload .mk file.
Please download it and change it to .mk.

Thanks again!

The Makefile seems OK to me.
This means that pkg-config is not in your path.

To fix this, use full path:
e.g. if it is install under /usr/local/bin/pkg-config then use that path in the project settings:

You will need to change this in the project settings->compiler->c++ compiler options
and under project settings->linker->linker options

In both pages, change the $(shell pkg-config ...) to $(shell /usr/local/bin/pkg-config ...)

Hello eranif,
I checked the path of pkg-config, it's /usr/local/Cellar/pkg-config/0.29.2/bin/pkg-config.
Then I open the windows of project settings and changed the setting as following:

and

but... I still got the error. :oops:

Does anything wrong with pkg-config that I installed?
Do I need reinstall it? If yes, could you tell me how to do it?

Thanks a lot!

It seems like a problem with your pkg-config
I am not using it myself on macOS, so I cant really help you with doing that.

Does it work from a Terminal?
i.e. can you successfully run: pkg-config --cflags gtkmm-3.0 from your Terminal window?

if it does work, then it might be just a PATH issue

It seems like in issue with Homebrew installation. Googling this, gives this:
