wxWidgets Error while building Filezilla 3.5.3
 
I've download the dependency and Filezilla. I've built the Object module
for wxPython (2.8.12.1) and copied it into the Filezilla Folder. When I try to build Filezilla I am getting the following error.

Quote:

checking for wx-config... no
configure: error:
wxWidgets must be installed on your system
but either the wx-config script couldn't be found or
no compatible wxWidgets configuration has been insalled.

Compatible wxWidgets configurations are the unicode builds
of wxGTK, wxMac and wxMSW.

Please check that wx-config is in path, the directory
where wxWidgets libraries are installed (returned by
'wx-config --libs' command) is in LD_LIBRARY_PATH or
equivalent variable and wxWidgets version is 2.8.12 or above.
wxWidgets isn't located in Slackbuilds.org! How do I locate it so I can continue the build of Filezilla?

Thanks.

wxPython and wxGTK are wxWidgets. This looks like it is after wxGTK in particular, but it will confilct with wxPython. I would uninstall wxPython, install wxGTK and try again.

reading here http://slackbuilds.org/repository/14...ork/filezilla/

the only dependency of filezilla is wxPython http://slackbuilds.org/repository/14...ries/wxPython/

so you have to build/install wPython and then build filezilla.

Wait, I just read your post again, and had a look at the slackbuild. Did you build wxPython (with ./wxPython.SlackBuild) then install it with (installpkg /tmp/wxpython....)?

Actually, it can be one of them.
I don't have wxPython on my system, but i do have wxGTK installed and it builds fine

yeah, I just tried it with wxGTK. The way the OP says "I've built the Object module for wxPython (2.8.12.1) and copied it into the Filezilla Folder", I think he is doing it wrong.

Instead of installing http://slackbuilds.org/result/?search=wxpython&sv=14.0 and then trying to install filezilla, I think he is downloading the source for wxpython, making it and then copying the object to the filezilla slackbuild and then trying to build it.

That is exactly what I tried to do.....as a newbie to Slackware.

I will try installing wxPython with "installpkg /tmp/wxPython-2.8.12.1-i486-1_SBo.tgz", and then try to build Filezilla.
I am new to Slackware, and that is a major problem for me.

Thanks, It worked just fine..............
