First thread, first problem

Post by anthonyda » Fri Feb 08, 2008 8:02 pm

Hi,
I'm currently trying to install codelite on an Asus EEE PC with the defaut OS (xandros).
I've downloaded the Unbuntu/debian paquet, right clic on it and install it but it returns the following error :
"Unable to install this pakagt codelite.deb. Check your installation and try again"
Any help ? thx.

The package was built on Ubuntu 7.10, Intel 32 bit.
I just downloaded it and installed it - with no problems.

Can you try and install it from command line by typing?

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg -i codelite-rev1073_i386.deb
Paste here any errors you get.

In general, CodeLite requires some packages to be installed *before* installing it:
libwxgtk2.8-0 and libgtk2.0-0

They are both available in the Ubuntu official repositories.

Looks like the error is coming from libwxgtk2.8-0 who isn't installed. Is this thing compatible with debian ? Because I can find a 2.6 version installed but the 2.8.0 isn't installable (in sudo synaptic)

Well, it is compatible with Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon, dont know about debian.

You can always try and build it from sources - the build process is rather simple.
have a look here for further details:

or If you encounter any other problems, post them here, and I will see what can I do to help you
