My experience with Ubuntu has been relatively great for the past year or so. In my opinion, development was actually easier on Ubuntu than on Windows. However, wxWidgets is out of control.
I've been fooling around with wxWidgets for 3 straight days and I'm getting nowhere. So, hopefully someone can help me out or I'm going to have to use a different library or something.
It all starts when I include <wx/wx.h>, which is technically <wx-2.8/wx/wx.h>. I got an error about setup.h. After hours of scratching my head, I finally (maybe) found out what to do with setup.h. Then I find out that in defs.h I get the error that there is no target and I should compile with wx-config. After a few more hours of scratching my head, I figure out what exactly that means. So, I run wx-config --cppflags, get the flags and set them as linker information only to find that I'm still getting the same error and there are about 10,000 more pending.
Every other library I have ever used "just worked." Maybe I'm spoiled; maybe I'm stupid; maybe something is wrong with my system, but I cannot figure this out without some help.
Can anyone please help?
