Red face audacity 64 bits in slackware 14.1, wxWigets problem


when i run sbopkg -i 'audacity'
at the end gives me this:

configure: Checking that the chosen version of wxWidgets is 2.8.x
configure: error: Unable to locate a suitable configuration of wxWidgets v2.8.x or higher.
The currently available configurations are listed below. If necessary, either
install the package for your distribution or download the latest version of
wxWidgets
from http://wxwidgets.org.

Default config is gtk2-unicode-3.0

Default config will be used for output

Alternate matches:
gtk2-unicode-3.1

Also available in /usr/local:
gtk2-ansi-release-2.8

i have installed all dependencies from slackbuilds first. including wxPython.
i do not install wxgtk because makes conflict acording to slackbuilds page.
it seems its a wx problem but i dont know what happen

also i check my wx version and i have this
wx-config --version
3.0.1

you probably have multiple wx* library installed in your system, some installed from slackbuilds and some probably installed manually and they are conflicting.
uninstall any wxGTK*, move temporarily /usr/local/lib (/usr/local/lib64 too if it exists) to /usr/local/lib.bak and /usr/local/bin to /usr/local/bin.bak, be sure to have only wxPython from SBo installed and retry the build.

i just remove:

wxPython
wxGTK3
wxGTK

after rebooting my sistem i try to install audacity from sbopkg (without installing again wxPython) and i got the same error. It seems i keep some wx something in other place, or its something wrong. I also use pkgtool to look some wx what ever and there is no more wx stuff, but according to system the error its the same:
configure: Checking that the chosen version of wxWidgets is 2.8.x
configure: error: Unable to locate a suitable configuration of wxWidgets v2.8.x or higher.
The currently available configurations are listed below. If necessary, either
install the package for your distribution or download the latest version of
wxWidgets
from http://wxwidgets.org.

Default config is gtk2-unicode-3.0

Default config will be used for output

Alternate matches:
gtk2-unicode-3.1

Also available in /usr/local:
gtk2-ansi-release-2.8


i also make:

whereis wx

wx: /usr/local/lib/wx

and

locate wx-config

wx-config: /usr/local/bin/wx-config

also i did a "make uninstall" to two wx folders that i previously compile


Mr ponce say something about move temporarily /usr/local/lib (/usr/local/lib64 too if it exists) to /usr/local/lib.bak and /usr/local/bin to /usr/local/bin.bak but i need some help to do that.

i keep without installing audacity.
i remove all wx version (according pkgtool, whereis and locate), but i think its something wrong.

You need to first install wxPython and then audacity:
sbopkg -i wxPython
sbopkg -i audacity

Do not install wxGTK or wxGTK3.

i keep the same bug, no solution at this point.
i try everything except the mr ponce solution, witch i dont know how to do it:


"you probably have multiple wx* library installed in your system, some installed from slackbuilds and some probably installed manually and they are conflicting.
uninstall any wxGTK*, move temporarily /usr/local/lib (/usr/local/lib64 too if it exists) to /usr/local/lib.bak and /usr/local/bin to /usr/local/bin.bak, be sure to have only wxPython from SBo installed and retry the build."

Try extract wxwidget source and run
Code:
./configure
make uninstall
Hopefully it will clear all wx* that are compiled from source

i keep the same, but i realize the real problem its wxwidgets 3.0.1
when i ./configure wxwidgets the output is:

wxwidgets 2.8 no
wxwidgets 3 yes
i apply
./configure
make uninstall
ldconfig
reboot

but at the end i keep the same wxwidgets 3 version
even i re check ./configure and the output was the same:

wxwidgets 3 yes

with pkgtool i remove all wx* but wxwidgets 3 doesnt appear.

which wxWidget source did you extract?
it should be the same version installed on your machine

I've had this problem before, it has to do with unicode. Enable unicode in wxwidgets "--enable-unicode".

No, --enable-unicode is used for installing it with unicode support enabled and that's the option used in SBo

Can you run this command as root?
Code:
updatedb
locate wx

For the wxGTK slackbuild yes, and that's the one I would use. For the wxGTK3, it is not there. I've never installed that one tho, so I'm not sure if it needs it.
