Welcome to wxWidgets/X11 2.7.0
You have downloaded version 2.7.0 of the X11 port of
the wxWidgets GUI library. This runs on X11 with no
Motif, Xt, GTK+ or any other standard widget set --
instead it uses the wxUniversal widgets. The intention
is to have it run on NanoX as well as desktop X11.
More information about the wxWidgets project as a whole
can be found at:
Information on how to install can be found in the file
install.txt, but if you cannot wait, this should work on
./configure --with-x11 --disable-shared --enable-log --enable-debug -without-odbc --enable-debug_cntxt
su <type root password>
When you run into problems, please read the install.txt and
follow those instructions. If you still don't have any success,
please send a bug report to one of our mailing lists (see
the wxWidgets homepage) INCLUDING A DESCRIPTION OF YOUR SYSTEM AND
YOUR PROBLEM, SUCH AS YOUR VERSION OF X, WHAT DISTRIBUTION YOU USE
AND WHAT ERROR WAS REPORTED. Alternatively, you may also use the bug
reporting system linked from the wxWidgets web page.
The library produced by the install process will be called
libwx_x11univ[d].a (static) and libwx_x11univ[d]-2.3.so.0.0.0
(shared) so that once a binary incompatible version of
wxWidgets/X11 comes out we'll augment the library version number
to avoid linking problems.
Please send problems concerning installation, feature requests,
bug reports or comments to the wxWidgets users list. Information
on how to subscribe is available from www.wxwidgets.org.
wxWidgets/X11 doesn't come with any guarantee whatsoever. It might
crash your hard disk or destroy your monitor. It doesn't claim to be
suitable for any special or general purpose.
Many of the samples are running.
Some remaining issues:
- some refresh efficiency issues
- clipboard implementation missing
- drag and drop implementation missing
- wxX11's wxTextCtrl (separate from wxUniv version)
needs some work, for example to remove vertical scrollbar,
and to provide wordwrap
- wxToggleButton implementation missing
- wxSpinCtrl implementation missing
- tooltips implementation missing
- code common to the Motif and X11 ports needs to be merged
- need thread safety in event loop
