View Full Version : How to specify dependacies libwxgtk

June 17th, 2009, 11:39 AM

I have made a deb package for a game I have written in c++ with dependencies on libwxgtk.

http://www.davenicholas.me.uk/openshed_0.1-1_i386.deb (with no deps)

I am new (complete noob) to deb packaging and would like to know how to specify the dependency in the control file as:

Depends: libwxgtk2.6-0 (>=

But this version of libwxgtk I have and restricts installation on older ubuntu's but without the above line it installs ok.

Is there anyway I can generically specify a dependency of without giving the version number of the package libwxgtk?

Thanks in advance.

I now specify a dependency of libwxgtk2.8.
