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.

Sources

The sources can be found at http://sourceforge.net/projects/wxwindows/files/

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

libwx_gtk2u_media

Install the WxWidgets library as instructed in wxWidgets 3.0 (and 2.9) Packages and Repositories - Ubuntu and debian

Gentoo

emerge -a dev-haskell/wxhaskell

Fedora Core 6

Arch Linux

The PKGBUILD file for wxgtk-2.9 on AUR passes --disable-compat28 to configure which breaks wxc-0.90.0.3. After removing that option, everything builds fine. (as of 2012-06-14)
