I am trying to install GDL on Ubuntu 12.04. I think I have installed all of the required packages, but I keep getting the same set of errors:
libreadline.so: undefined reference to 'tgetstr'
and the same for "tputs', 'BC', 'tgetent', 'tgetflag', 'tgoto', 'UP', 'tgetnum', and 'PC'.
I get this same set of errors if I use ./configure , make or cmake
Any advice is greatly appreciated!
It seems you're missing the ncurses library.
Which version of GDL are you using?
What does configure/cmake say when looking for ncurses?
Thanks for the reply ! I am trying to install gdl-0.9.2
Here's what I can find in config.log about ncurses:
configure:15496: checking for initscr in -lncurses
configure:15521: g++ -o conftest -g -O2 -lcurses conftest.cpp -lncurses -ldl -ldl >&5
configure:15521: $? = 0
configure:15530: result: yes
Determining if the function wsyncup exists in the /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libcurses.so passed with the following output:

It doesn't seem that either looks for ncurses explicitly, unless I'm looking in the wrong place. Are there any other tests I can do it see if it is installed correctly?
Thank you very much!
