Talk:Linux library requirements

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Bob the Hamster: The error message you will see if you do not have all the required libraries installed is going to be something like this:

/usr/share/freebasic/bin/linux/ld: cannot find -lX11

Except of course, the "-lX11" part will be different depending on which dev libraries you are missing.

Bob the Hamster (talk) 10:12, 15 January 2017 (PST): Just some notes for myself, to get myself compiling on a new clean Xubuntu 16.04 I installed the following:

  • Manually installed Freebasic 1.05 for Linux 64 bit
  • Installed latest stable Euphoria .deb
  • apt-get install --no-install-recommends libx11-dev libxpm-dev libxrandr-dev libxrender-dev libsdl-mixer1.2-dev libncurses5-dev timidity freepats scons g++
