Post by fathima » Thu Oct 23, 2014 1:45 pm

Hi

Can anyone please help me, What is the command used to open the Codelite in Xming Putty.

For example, for opening xclock we use the command "xclock".

Thanks in advance.

There is no special command. Just configure xming + putty properly and simply launch codelite.
I have this setup working properly for couple of years now with on problem

Eran,

I'm very new to linux commands. 6+ years of experience in windows. Now trying to build some c++ applications in Linux server using codelite, accessing the Linux server through putty and getting only command prompt.

Dont have any idea on opening the codelite. :(

Simple google, will explain how to configure
Putty with X-forwarding

Try this:
http://www.geo.mtu.edu/geoschem/docs/putty_install.html

Once everything is setup properly, you will start codelite by typing 'codelite' from the command line:

Code: Select all

codelite

This error is not really related to xming, but seems like you have a broken installation of codelite
Which Linux distro/version are you using?
How did you install codelite?

There is no installation for RHEL 6.5 , what is available from the website is for Fedora and Suse(attached)
We had managed to install the Codelite in RHEL 6.5

Hi,
We had managed to install the Codelite in RHEL 6.5
As you've discovered, that doesn't work. The CodeLite rpm that you installed contains a particular wxWidgets build, and this depends on libs e.g. libwebkitgtk-1.0.so.0 that aren't installed in your RHEL 6.5; and I suspect they aren't available for it.

You have two choices that I can think of:
1) You can try to install the missing libs. That might work, and CodeLite might work OK afterwards, but it won't be easy, and I suspect it will fail.
2) Build CodeLite yourself, from source, after installing the RHEL wxGTK package. It's not hard to do this: see http://codelite.org/Developers/Linux. This is much more likely to work for you.

Regards,

David
