Building Audacity 1.2.6


Hello Forum,

I am fairly new to Linux and have been trying to build “audacity-src-1.2.6” for about 6 hours now. I have the following compiling error:

Code:
tmixer.a libaudacity.a -lFLAC -pthread -lwx_gtk-2.4
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lwx_gtk-2.4
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[1]: *** [../audacity] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/clemenh/Desktop/audacity-src-1.2.6/src'
make: *** [audacity] Error 2

I have searched google and have install loads of packages trying to get past this error but to no avail.

If anyone can help me or knows what package I should be installing please let me know.

Thanks in advance,
Harold Clements

You can't do it, instead use 1.3.6 this one will compile with newer wxwidgets. Make sure you install wxwidgets.

Hello H_TeXMeX_H, thank you very much for your reply.

I will of course try your suggestion. However, in my desperation it would appear that I have messed something else up whilst trying to fix the original problem. Basically, I removed my working directory and started the compilation from scratch. Now I have a new set of errors (extract below) that I am unsure what I have done and how to fix.

Any help on this will be gratefully received.

make[1]: *** [commands/CommandManager.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/clemenh/Desktop/audacity-src-1.3.6/src'

Thanks very much for your help,

Seems to me as if it didn't find a required header file.
Take a good look for previous errors during the configuration. Overlooking config.log might help here.

What version of wxwidgets do you have installed, it should be a new version of wxGTK.

Thank you for your patience. I am fairly new to Linux and building apps from source code (as you can probably tell)!

In response to your question, I downloaded the latest wxGTK-2.8.9 as source - Please could you confirm that I have followed the correct process for building / installing?

Unzipped wxGTK-2.8.9.tar.gz to my desktop.
$ ./configure This appeared to process correctly without any errors.
$ make The concluded with: “The installation of wxWidgets is finished. On certain platforms (eg Linux) you’ll have to run ldconfig.... ”
$ sudo ldconfig {no screen output}

How do I know if this is installed correctly?

If I now run “./ configure” on audacity I get “No config found to match /usr/local/bin/wx-config ...”

I assume that my build of wxGTK-2.8.9 did not install correctly but I don’t know!

Thanks again for your patience...
Harold Clements
