Builds for newer Ubuntu versions?

Asked by dmoore on 2016-04-26

Could someone please add builds for newer versions. I am trying to get this working again: https://launchpad.net/~damien-moore/+archive/ubuntu/codeblocks-stable but wx2.8 isn't in the 16.04 repos anymore.

Xenial has wxwidgets3.0
Do you have a problem using that one instead?
There might be PPAs with wxwidgets2.8 for xenial. Maybe you can use these.

wxWidgets 3.0 makes the 16.01 version of Code::Blocks unstable.

I see the following possibilities:
1. get codeblocks working with wxwidgets3.0 (fix codeblocks or wxwidgets3.0, or whoever is to blame for the instabilities)
2. try using an existing wxwidgets2.8 version (either from an existing PPA, or by manually installing the version for wily in xenial, if that is possible)
3. build your own version of wxwidgets2.8 for xenial, e.g. in the PPA that you are working on.

I do not expect that wxwidgets2.8 will be re-introduced in xenial. You can of course try creating a respective bug report, but do not put your expectations too high.

Thanks, I went with option 3 using

https://code.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/wxwidgets2.8

to build a recipe. It looks like that takes care of the problem.
