Installing WxPerl on Ubuntu 8.04

Written by James McDonald

September 25, 2008

Using apt-get or synaptic install

  • lynx
  • libwxgtk2.8
  • libwxgtk2.8-dev
  • libgtk2.0-dev
  • Test::POD::Coverage

As root run CPAN with the command to install wx. You may have to configure CPAN prior to using it. I chose to follow dependencies and kept most of the defaults.

sudo apt-get install libextutils-cbuilder-perl
ERROR: ExtUtils::CBuilder (0.18) is installed, but we need version >= 0.24

sudo perl -MCPAN -e 'shell'
install CPAN::Bundle

Note: Make sure you the following with sudo because the tests will fail to run if it can’t access the X server.

sudo perl -MCPAN -e 'install Alien::wxWidgets'
sudo perl -MCPAN -e 'install Wx'

    To install Test::POD::Coverage I installed libtest-pod-perl and libtest-pod-coverage-perl using synaptic. Otherwise worked perfectly.

    Thank you very much!
