Making my C++ software work on Ubuntu Server
« on: June 01, 2011, 02:28:02 am »
Hey,

OK, so I've finished coding my C++ app on my PC, I wanna run it in my VPS. I have a clean Ubuntu VPS.

The problem is that hell, I don't have idea how to do that, I only know how to work with Windows and Mac. Never worked with servers or anything like that. I'm using MongoDB so I've installed it, then I've wrote:
apt-get build-dep libsfml
and it's all OK installed.

BUT, how can I download to there the SFML library? As you say in the tutorial: "Then, to actually compile the SFML libraries and samples, you must download and install the full SDK. Go to the SFML-x.y directory, and type the following commands:". How can I Go to the SFML-x.y if... I don't have it? Or maybe I do, I just don't know where?


Thanks!

Laurent

Why don't you apt-get install libsfml?

How can you install the dependencies for a package but not the package itself??

First make sure that it is available, and check its exact name:
Code: [Select]
apt-cache search sfml

And then select and install the right package.
