do u know where I can find it?

WX-GTK2.6 is installed.


I know it looks like a silly question, but it's not.

Nah it's not really a silly question, the silly part is the lack of information you're providing...

If wxGTK is installed, use your package manager or your general wits to find where wx-config is. Make sure it's in your $PATH and the compile should work.

Find out where wx-config is located. There is some homework, run along and do it and next lesson we'll sort out the rest.

Then it would seem that wxGTK is not installed correctly. You need to track back and find out what went wrong. When you think wxGTK is installed properly, run this from a terminal:
Code:
wx-config --libs
If you get some complicated looking output, everything is fine. If you get a command not found error, it's not installed properly and you need to try again.

I don't think it's possible that it didn't installed currectly since it came with the distro (mandriva2006).

you should also check that the development packages which contain the headers for wxwindows are installed if you want to compile an app that uses wxwidgets (wxwindows).

libwxgtk2.x-devel-xxxx
