Installation instructions

Post by jumico » Sun Mar 14, 2010 3:58 am

I just downloaded and installed codelite and it installed mingw at the same time but the instructions when you click download show it as a separate step which was kinda confusing. Anyways I think it would be helpful to update the installation instructing so it doesn't look like you have to install two separate things. Also would it be possible for codelite to automatically set the debugger path because isn't it always installed in the same place? It's not a big deal I just think it might be helpful. Thanks.

If you install the bundled package of codelite + mingw - you dont need to update any path.

Unless you did something else...

Okay thanks. I was following what the installation instructions said to do. Which is why I think it would be helpful to update them.

Windows
Step 1: Download and install CodeLite
Download the installer from <<download URL>>.
If you chose any of the installers that includes MinGW bundle you are all done and can skip the next steps
These quote was taken from here:

http://codelite.org/LiteEditor/Download

Nothing to be updated

Where can I find the step by step instructions? The link http://codelite.org/LiteEditor/Download does not have it shown anywhere. I have no clue on how to proceed. I have downloaded the 8 MB compressed file for windows. How to proceed? Can anyone kindly guide me in getting codelite installed?

Hi David,

The nearest thing to step-by-step instructions for MSWin is this page. But...

Are you sure you downloaded the correct file? The 8MB one is the source tarball for Linux, and .exe files needed for MSWin were removed. (The next release will 'feature' tarballs appropriate for all 3 platforms.)

If you really want to build from source, I suggest you checkout from svn. But most MSWin users go for the combined package of prebuilt CodeLite, MinGW and wxWidgets, the current version of which is here.

Regards,

David
