libfreerdp-dev ubuntu 19.04 - cannot build from source

Asked by A. Wilmink on 2019-07-25

Libfreerdp-dev cmake build fails for multicore support with error ld: pthreads not found. (pthread_create in pthreads). Pthread (minus the s) is installed, but ld does not check for pthread when building libfreerdp-dev

Further investigation leads to either manually forcing ld to use pthread over ptrhreads (which ld ignores), or installing the correct additional packages (e.g. libboost-dev, of which I installed liboost-dev-all). What I would like to achieve is an overview of why the cmake build fails but I will accept a quick solution.

Can anyone point me in the correct direction or does anyone know what the release status is of libfreerdp-dev for ubuntu 19.04?

freerdp-dev is obsolete, you should install freerdp2-dev instead, which is available in the Ubuntu repositories without the need to compile it yourself.

Sorry, I edited my original question as it could have been misleading.

@manfred Hampl, libfreerdp2-dev does not exist.

The older version was named libfreerdp-dev, and the new one now is freerdp2-dev.
Sorry for being inaccurate in my first answer.

Can you help with this problem?
