Re: KiCad (macOS) wxWidgets fork


Hi Bernhard,

Could you share the config command you used to set up wxWidgets?  I used:

../configure \
    --prefix=`pwd`/../wx-bin \
    --with-opengl \
    --enable-aui \
    --enable-utf8 \
    --enable-html \
    --enable-stl \
    --enable-debug \
    --enable-debug-gdb \
    --with-libjpeg=builtin \
    --with-libpng=builtin \
    --with-regex=builtin \
    --with-libtiff=builtin \
    --with-zlib=builtin \
    --with-expat=builtin \
    --without-liblzma \
    --with-macosx-version-min=10.13 \
    --enable-universal-binary=x86_64 \
    CC=clang \

but I’m getting a make error:

make: *** No rule to make target `../include/wx/osx/cocoa/stdpaths.h', needed by `basedll_appbase.o'.  Stop.

I assume I’m on the right branch:

Jeffs-MBP:build jeff$ git status
On branch kicad/macos-wx-3.0
Your branch is up-to-date with 'origin/kicad/macos-wx-3.0’.


PS: I also seem to be missing a .gitignore file.  Is that not in yet, or is that a symptom of something else?
