This article is a stub. You can help by expanding it. This page records some user experiences building wxHaskell on Linux. It should be fleshed out now that wxHaskell 0.12 has been released.

Contents

1 Sources

The sources can be found at http://sourceforge.net/projects/wxwindows/files/ . To compile the source, see [Compiling and getting started.

2 Debian and Ubuntu

sudo apt-get install g++
sudo apt-get install libglu-dev
sudo apt-get install libwxgtk2.8-dev

Debian has removed a dependency on gstreamer and gconf2.0 in their WxWidgets packages.

This may be the cause of your error when building `wxcore` if the build fails when unable to find

libwx_gtk2u_media

Install the WxWidgets library as instructed in wxWidgets 3.0 (and 2.9) Packages and Repositories - Ubuntu and debian

3 Gentoo

emerge -a dev-haskell/wxhaskell

4 Fedora Core 6

5 Arch Linux

The PKGBUILD file for wxgtk-2.9 on AUR passes --disable-compat28 to configure which breaks wxc-0.90.0.3. After removing that option, everything builds fine. (as of 2012-06-14)
