cmake SFML_DIR-NOTFOUND?
« on: April 28, 2012, 11:34:23 pm »
I do have SFML installed in /usr/local/, I have the source somewhere in my home directory. Yet in cmake-gui it keeps complaining (I assume that's the error). It says

Quote
    SFMLConfig.cmake
    sfml-config.cmake



Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!

In the output thingy. I don't know if that means it's looking for SFMLConfig.cmake and not finding it, or having troubles with something within those files. I'm really no good with cmake, can anyone tell me what's wrong (or how I could find out)?

CMake cannot find the FindSFML.cmake file, which would help it to find the SFML headers and libraries. This file is not reachable by CMake by default, you must either copy it to the /usr/shared/cmake-2.8/Modules folder (standard location for FindXxx.cmake files), or put the path to the FindSFML.cmake file in the CMAKE_MODULE_PATH variable when you configure your project, so that CMake can find it.

The FindSFML.cmake file is in the /cmake/Modules sub-directory of SFML (or in <install-dir>/share/SFML/cmake/Modules if you installed SFML).

I don't actually have a CMAKE_MODULE_PATH variable (and adding it doesn't do anything), but copying the .cmake did the trick. Thanks!

You have to check the "Advanced" box in cmake-gui.

I had the same problem.

SFML installs this file by default in /usr/shared/SFML, is it its right location ?

Interested in using SFML with Python ? Try out its Python binding!

I tried twice and put the right path in CMAKE_MODULE_PATH or SFML_DIR variable does not work. Only copying the file in the standard location for FindXxx.cmake files works.

By default, SFML installs FindSFML.cmake in <install-dir>/share/SFML/cmake/Modules/, why ?

It doesn't install this file anymore.
