    How-to: Compiling (installing) FaHmon on Ubuntu

    I had trouble trying to compile the new FahMon release after reinstalling Ubuntu. This is for the current version 2.3.99.1

    This is the guide you need to follow for compiling the new release

    Download the latest source code from here and extract to the home drive or where ever you feel comfortable.
    This will do the job for you (copy and past into a terminal)
    Code:
    wget -O FahMon-2.3.99.1.tar.bz2 --no-check-certificate "http://fahmon.net/downloads/current.php?linux"
    Now to extract the file (copy and past into a terminal)
    Code:
    tar xvf FahMon-2.3.99.1.tar.bz2
    You'll need to make sure that you have g++,wxgtk 2.6.4 or higher and the wxgtk2.6-dev, and wx-common installed to compile the program. I would suggest the use of synaptic for installation but you can use the following commands:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libwxgtk2.8-dev
    That will also install some required dependencies
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install wx-common
    And finally for some users (although this may require your install CD)
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install g++
    To clear up the guide, I type in wxgtk into synaptic and select libwxgtk2.8-dev click mark for installation and allow it to select all the other required dependecies, I then run a search for wx-common tick that for installation too. I then click the apply button.
    For some users you may need to install the g++ package and dependancies.



    Then it's a case of following the instructions in the guide, which are:

    Use the cd command in a console to place yourself in your fahmon folder.
    type into the console
    Code:
    cd /home/[USER NAME]/FahMon-2.3.99.1
    or whatever your folder is called

    Type in the console
    Code:
    ./configure
    You may need to type y to confirm partway through this.

    Type
    Code:
    make
    This will take a few minutes, even on a very fast machine.

    Type
    Code:
    sudo make install
    You'll get an error after make install if you don't use sudo.

    You'll now find fahmon installed and an icon link to the program in Applications>System Tools


    Thanks go to Uncle_Fungus for his help with this how-to.

    Okay, I installed the required libraries, but it's giving me an error:

    checking for wx-config... no
    configure: error:
    wxWidgets must be installed on your system.

    Please check that wx-config is in path, the directory
    where wxWidgets libraries are installed (returned by
    'wx-config --libs' or 'wx-config --static --libs' command)
    is in LD_LIBRARY_PATH or equivalent variable and
    wxWidgets version is 2.8.0 or above.
    I am unsure what to do.

    Thanks a lot! The directions are great!

    I did not have to do this.

    Yes there seems to have been a change or something with Hardy. With Gutsy I still had to press y part the way through. I'll update the instructions to read "You may need to type y to confirm partway through this."

    Has anyone successfully compiled it in Intrepid? It worked fine in Hardy but I'm guessing the libraries have changed.

    Yes you do the same but you must compile with the new version: FahMon 2.3.3

    Sorry guys, I've not been running Linux SMPs for a while, having moved over to GPU2 folding, but I'll try to keep this up to date, just PM me to do so

    Updated to 2.3.3. Hopefully this will work well for everyone.
