wxHexEditor not running; Successfull SlackBuild and Install


Hello,
I was able to complete the download, slackbuild and install for wxHexEditor and it's dependency wxPython 2.8.12.1
There were no errors that I could see.
When I launch it from KDE the icon bounces up and down then disappears. I did this install about 7 months ago on a different computer and it worked great.
I ran wxHexEdior from a console in KDE and got this error:
Code:
/usr/bin/wxHexEditor: error while loading shared libraries: libwx_gtk2_richtext-2.8.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I see that the lib file is missing but should I just start moving them manually or??? They did get made in the build process. I am too noob to just start whacking files here and there. Also not sure where the file needs to go.
Happy Trails

Do you happen to have wxGTK installed as well? It conflicts with wxPython,

Thanks bassmadrigal,
That may be my problem. I had wxGTK installed in error because I misread a post. But I ran removepkg and verified the removal in the /var/log/package list. In desperation I used removepkg on all three wxGTK, wxPython, & wxHexEditor. Now with just wxPython and wxHexEditor installed I get the same error.
I find the file listed in my console error line is in /usr/lib64 and wonder if it and the other wxPython libs need to be in /lib64?
Also the permissions look correct with owner and group read as well as executable.

Happy Trails

Hello willysr,I am hoping you may be watching this thread.
I have finally been able to work on my wxHexEditor install again. Thanks for the tip and your work on wxHexEditor SlackBuid.
I had two snags. One I fixed and one I can't find a way to remedy. As this was started here I am thinking I can continue with this line.
I found a problem with the libwebp.SlackBuild file which was a simple change from the source file ref from .tar.gz to .tar.
I instlled, hyphen, geoclue, libwebp, webkit2gtk, wxGTK3 and wxHexEditor in that order.
wxHexEditor stopped with this error:
Code:
g++ -c `wx-config --cxxflags` -Iudis86 -Imhash/include -MMD -fopenmp -Wall -O2 -fPIC   src/HexEditorGui.cpp -o src/HexEditorGui.o
src/HexEditorGui.cpp:8:23: fatal error: wx/wxprec.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.
The file wxprec.h is not found on my root disk. So I need some help here.

Should I submit these as bugs?

Happy Trails

Can you show the results of this command?
Code:
grep wx/wxprec.h /var/log/packages/*

That's strange. Are you sure you have wxGTK3 installed?
here's on my machine
Code:
grep wx/wxprec.h /var/log/packages/*                                                                                           
/var/log/packages/wxGTK3-3.0.3.1-i586-1_SBo:usr/include/wx-3.0/wx/wxprec.h

OMG. I forgot the installpkg step for wxGTK3. No it wasn't installed. I ran installpkg on the GTK3 SBo. It was successful. But I still get the same error about wx/wxprec.h. However, the grep you suggested shows that the file is there.

Code:
root@NomadLx:~# grep wx/wxprec.h /var/log/packages/*
/var/log/packages/wxGTK3-3.0.3.1-x86_64-1_SBo:usr/include/wx-3.0/wx/wxprec.h
root@NomadLx:~#
I either made a mess or still have something done wrong.

Thank you for helping me.

Did you get the updated wxHexEditor from SBo?
I can build it here on my Slackware64-14.2 VM
Code:
wxHexEditor:
  MD5SUM check for wxHexEditor-20170415_bb951eb.tar.xz ... OK
  Building package wxHexEditor-20170415_bb951eb-x86_64-1_SBo.tgz ... OK
  Installing package wxHexEditor-20170415_bb951eb-x86_64-1_SBo.tgz ... OK

Hello,
And thank you again.
Yes from SlaclBuilds.org I have:
wxHexEditor.tar.gz
wxHexEditor.tar.gz.asc
wxHexEditor-20170415_bb951eb.tar.xz (8b3f8d2c459a6bc7bd18d091d85f9671)

my calculated md5: 8b3f8d2c459a6bc7bd18d091d85f9671 (match, I pasted one below of the other)
I also checked the version in my wxHexEditor.SlackBuild (from wxHexEditor.tar.gz.asc)
VERSION=${VERSION:-20170415_bb951eb}
The file definitely is there but the compiler says it can't find it.
I am certain that I have the files you want me to use.
I just downloaded them again and the md5's match the files I have used.
The build works for you (I am certain of that).

This issue must be caused by something I have done.
I may be off the net for a couple of days travelling.
Ina day or two I'll install a fresh Slack64 14.2 and I bet when I report back it works fine.

Happy Trails
