CSFML for Ubuntu Lunar Lobster
« on: October 02, 2023, 05:02:34 am »
Hi SFML community,

I have recently been forced to upgrade my Ubuntu version to Ubuntu 23.04 Lunar Lobster (x86-64).

I'm having a hell of a time trying to install CSFML on my system (SFML binaries from www.sfml-dev.org work fine). The packages I downloaded using Synaptic Package Manager / Apt were empty and I cant figure out how to install from source.

Is there any way that I can get hold of the CSFML headers and binaries that were available in apt with a previous version of Ubuntu? Does anyone have the headers and binaries they can send me?

Kind regards,

I downloaded the software objects from https://packages.ubuntu.com/search?suite=kinetic&searchon=names&keywords=csfml and got the headers from the csfml source code, and all is well.

You should be able to install libcsfml-dev. Not sure what you mean that they were empty?
