Installing cscope plugin on Ubuntu 9.10

CodeLite: 2.0 SVN 3365 + Karmic Ubunutu (9.10)

I'm amazed by CodeLite. I hadn't heard about this product until yesterday and I'm blown away. A DevStudio IDE for Linux. A dream come true.

I'm unable to get the cscope plugin to work. The Synaptic package installer refused to install the cscope plugin claiming version incompatibility. Unbuntu installs CodeLite 1.0.2893 When CodeLite 2.0 is installed Synnaptic refuses to install the cscope plugin.

I've pulled down your code from svn and I'm unable to build because I can't get wxwidgets to build.

The cscope button is displayed in the UI. Pressing causes CodeLite to instantly crash.

Any suggestions about to install the cscope plugin?

When working on Ubuntu its pretty simple to build codelite

Here are the steps to do it:
Install the wxwidgets from Ubuntu repositories:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install libwxgtk2.8-dev
install GTK development:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-dev
checkout codelite sources (which you already did)

from codelite sources directory:

Code: Select all

once compilation is done:

Code: Select all

sudo make install
Next, install cscope:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install cscope
You are ready to work with codelite + cscope.

The problem is that the Ubuntu package and my provided packages are different:
While building codelite from sources, it will install ALL the plugins, the package maintainer for codelite has decided to break codelite into smaller pieces - so you dont really need to install the cscope plugin, it is already there (you only need to install cscope tool)

Thanks for your reply. I discovered a similar solution. I installed the wx developer's package with the synamptic package manager. Then codelite built, installed and executed first time - complete with cscope.

Anyway, everything's working now. Thanks for your reply.

I'm really impressed by what you have done here and I've shown codelite to my boss and coworkers. Everybody's amazed by what you have achieved.
