wxWidgets 3.0 Packages and Repositories

This page is for the latest stable release, wx3.0.5. For the wx3.1 development branch see WxWidgets31Binaries. For wx3.0.4 see WxWidgets304Binaries.

CodeLite requires wxWidgets >=3.0.2. While wx3.0.4 is now available from current distro releases, this is unlikely to be updated to wx3.0.5. I've therefore built packages for the commonest distros.

Note: Starting with wx3.0.5 I'm providing only 64 bit builds as I doubt if many people are still using i386 machines.
Also starting with wx3.0.5 I've only built packages against GTK+3.

The packages are signed with the CodeLite public key so, if you haven't done so before, you should tell apt or rpm about this by doing as superuser (su or sudo depending on your distro):

 apt-key adv --fetch-keys


 rpm --import

Ubuntu and debian

If you use a debian-based distro there are the following wxWidgets repositories available:

wxWidgets Repositories
 RepositoryAvailable VersionsComponent
ubuntu focaluniverse

The ubuntu ones should also work on other *buntus, and on derivatives e.g. Mint.

Now let apt know that the repository exits. If you use an apt front-end e.g. synaptic, tell it to Add a repository, using as data the appropriate entry in the table above.

If you do things by hand, add the appropriate url to /etc/apt/sources.list. Become superuser and either use a text editor to edit /etc/apt/sources.list, adding a line similar to:

deb buster libs

or, in a terminal, do something like:

sudo apt-add-repository 'deb focal universe'

The line to add is different for different distros/versions; choose the appropriate one:

wxWidgets Repositories
Distro/releaseLine to append
debian busterdeb buster libs
ubuntu bionicdeb bionic universe
ubuntu focaldeb focal universe

You then need update the repositories. In synaptic, click the Reload button. If you're doing things by hand, do:

 apt-get update

Synaptic users can then select and install as usual. By hand you can do:

 apt-get install libwxbase3.0-0-unofficial \
                 libwxbase3.0-dev \
                 libwxgtk3.0-0-unofficial \
                 libwxgtk3.0-dev \
                 wx3.0-headers \
                 wx-common \
                 libwxbase3.0-dbg \
                 libwxgtk3.0-dbg \
                 wx3.0-i18n \
                 wx3.0-examples \

The first 6 of those are required; the others optional (and of decreasing importance).

wx-common and wx3.0-i18n will conflict with the distro's wx2.8 equivalents. That is unlikely to matter too much; but wx-common contains wxrc so, if you use this, be aware that there may be differences after upgrading.

Fedora and openSUSE

There are currently rpms available for fedora 32 and openSUSE 15.1. For wx3.0.4 rpms see WxWidgets304Binaries. For older releases and wx versions see OlderWxWidgetsBinaries.

wxWidgets rpms
fedora32wx-base-unicode wx-base-unicode-devel wx-gtk3-unicode wx-gtk3-unicode-devel wx-gtk3-unicode-gl wx-i18n
openSUSE15.1wx-base-unicode wx-base-unicode-devel wx-gtk3-unicode wx-gtk3-unicode-devel wx-gtk3-unicode-gl wx-i18n

There are also source rpms for Fedora and openSUSE. Either download the required rpms and install them as usual, or download and install in one step; e.g.

rpm -Uvh

Note that these rpms conflict with the wx2.8 devel ones.
