Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'm not satisfied with the old yet stable version of codeblocks and I'd like to install the nightly builds. I'm using ubuntu.
The nightly builds are supposed to be here : http://forums.codeblocks.org/index.php/board,20.0.html
but everywhere I go I always see 'linux : none'.
So where can I basically download the last version of codeblocks ?
I also tried to do this : http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php...ource_on_Linux
Didn't work either.
When I typed ../configure --prefix=/opt/wx/2.8 \
the result was
checking for gtk+ -version >= 2.0.0... no
*** could not run gtk+ test program, checking why...
*** the test program failed to compile or link. see the file config.log for the exact error that occured. This usually mean GTK+ is incorrectly installed.
The development files for gtk+ were not found. For gtk+ 2, please ensure that pkg-config is in the path and that gtk+-2.0.pc is installed. For gtk+ 1.2 please check that gtk-config is in the path aand that the version is 1.2.3 or above. Also check that the libraries returned by 'pkg-config gtk+-2.0 --libs or 'gtk-config --libs' are in the LD_LIBRARY_PATH or equivalent.
If I type pkg-config gtk+-2.0 --libs, the result is :
package gtk+2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing 'gtk +-2.pc' to the PKG_CONFIG_PZTH' environment variable
No package 'gtk+-2.0' found.
Yet, if I type update-alternatives --config wx-config, one of the lines of the result is :
selection path priority status
0 /usr/lib/wx/config/gtk2-unicode-release-2.8 288 auto mode
The second command may take some time to complete.
Now you can use the apt-file command to search for the package you need. For example it seem you need the "gtk-config" command to find the package that provides it do:
apt-file search gtk-config
There will probably be a few packages listed. Notice that one of them provides /usr/bin/gtk-config. Since you we know that gtk-config is a command (and /usr/bin/ is the noramal place for commands) we know that this is the package to install (on my system it is libgtk1.2-dev).
When errors are reported from ./configure please try to use the "apt-file search" method to work out what to install.
PS. I notice now that this will not solve the current problem you have asked about...
PPS. Please post the output of config.log

This is never ending, I just downloaded sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-dev and then typed mkdir build_gtk2_shared_monolithic_unicode
../configure --prefix=/opt/wx/2.8 \
but the 'make' gave me hundreds of errors.
I'm going to go for knudfl's solution instead, the wiki seems not very reliable indeed.
So I typed make from ./trunk.
It's taking a very long time. Millions of lines probably appeared.
Assuming this will work, how do I remove everything that I've done so far regarding this issue and that didn't work ? (I tried everything that has been mentionned here, plus everything that is mentionned in the wiki up to 'su' in 'wxWidgets build')
Well, this didn't work.
I typed make in /trunk, and then sudo make install.
I then restarted the computer.
codeblocks is in applications->programming, and if I click on it, it starts launching but then closes. What can I do now ?
