1 Sources

The sources for wxWidgets can be found at . To compile the source, see Compiling and getting started.

The sources of wxHaskell can be downloaded with the command

git clone git://

or by clicking the button "download ZIP" on page

2 Debian and Ubuntu

sudo apt-get install g++
sudo apt-get install libglu-dev
sudo apt-get install libwxgtk2.8-dev
