|Subject:||fltk-Octave on cygwin|
|Date:||Thu, 12 Aug 2010 17:47:53 +0200 (CEST)|
I am using Octave, installed from Cygwin (on Windows XP). After some research on the Internet, I understoood one of the best ways to include GUIs in Octave (in order to create custom GUIs) is to use flkt-Octave (Am I right ??). I downloaded fltk-Octave-0.6.1 (hoping this is the last version), as well as fltk-184.108.40.206 from Cygwin.
However, I am not sure this is what I should do :
First, I read somewhere on the web that fltk-octave did not support later versions that fltk-1.1.6 ... However, I can not find that version from Cygwin ... What should I do ? Download the old version from the Internet and install it outside cygwin ?? Will octave find it if it is not in the cygwin directory ?
Second, the file ./autogen.sh needs the functions automake, aclocal and libtoolize, which I do not have and did not find on Cygwin (I would have preferred everything to go through Cygwin, as Octave)... Should I download and install them from elsewhere ?
Third, when I compile the ./configure file (specifying the option --build=i686-pc-cygwin because my initial config.guess was empty), I get after several other checking lines :
checking build system type...
configure: error: invalid value of canonical build
I do not understand what this message means ... Could anybody help ?
Thank you VERY MUCH in advance for your answer to my three sets of questions !!
