This article is a stub. You can help by expanding it. This page records some user experiences building wxHaskell on Linux. It should be fleshed out now that wxHaskell 0.12 has been released.


Debian and Ubuntu

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

Debian has removed a dependency on gstreamer and gconf2.0 in their WxWidgets packages.

This may be the cause of your error when building `wxcore` if the build fails when unable to find


You need to install `gstreamer` and `gconf-2.0`

sudo apt-get install libgstreamer0.10-dev
sudo apt-get install libstreamer-plugins-base0.10-dev
sudo apt-get install gconf2.0-dev

You will then need to build WxWidgets from source

configure --enable-unicode --enable-mediactrl

If you then are unable to find



emerge -a dev-haskell/wxhaskell

Fedora Core 6
