Need help compiling/building [UNSOLVED]
« on: February 25, 2015, 07:11:27 pm »
Hi,i would like to use sfml with sfgui.
If i understand correctly the last version of sfgui require me to build sfml from the git files first.

I manage to compile SFML-master with cmake gui with no errors.
I built the sfml project file with codeblocks and i chose install .

I dl glew-1.12.0-win32 and SFGUI-0.2.3-source.

I get this when i clic configure:

I indicate the glew include and glew library and i clic configure again and i get this:

I indicate the sfml folder that codeblocks created and i get this:

I am not very familiar with cmake so i don't know what to do now.

Should i rebuild sfml ? Is there any precompiled sfgui libs that can work with sfml 2.2 or sfml git ?

Please help the debutant that i am.

It's all explained on the SFGUI FAQ and guide page: http://sfgui.sfml-dev.de/p/faq

SFGUI should work with SFML 2.2, so you don't necessarily need to build it yourself.

It's highly recommended to use the GLEW SFML provides in its extlibs directory.

And finally SFGUI has its own forum in which the same questions have been answered numerous times. ;)

Thank you for your answer exploit3r,

If reading the faq answered my questions i wouldn't have posted here.

I tried a nighly build of sfgui and it didn't work for sfml 2.2.

I don't have an ext lib folder, i tried redoing the codeblocks step but no option work now.

I'll go ask on the sfgui forum
