Error running Editor. Recently compiled


#1

I’ve recently compiled Easy RPG Editor under Linux, with no errors, but when I try to launch it shows me this:

If I uncheck “Show me this dialog the next time” the editor launches, but with no buttons, only the map list space and the menu. Any solutions?


#2

I think you are trying to compile the old deprecated C++/wxWidgets editor. The new one is written in Vala/GTK3 and is located in /trunk/editor-vala folder.


#3

So, i have to compile the other editor, which doesn’t uses vxWidgets?


#4

correct.


#5

In order to compile new editor-vala you need distros with GTK3 installed, for example, Fedora 15 or Ubuntu 11.10, or backport GTK into your older distro.

New editor-vala compiling instructions are to be announced yet, but basic requirements are:
valac (0.12 or 0.14)
libgtk 3.0 devel (or 3.2)
GIR bindings for gtk, cairo
gnu autotools (autoconf, automake…)
Anjuta 3.0 or 3.2 (easier development and compiling)


#6

I’m using Linux Mint 11, can I compile?


#7

try to find the package names and install them, if you cant install them with yum or apt-get you can always download the sourcecode from every homepage and compile them yourself.


#8

Try adding a GTK+ 3.x PPA
If not, try to change configure.ac for minimum GTK and Vala versions required, but maybe some symbols are GTK3 only, like primary toolbar style settings.


#9

I couldn’t compile on Linux (seems that there aren’t all packages yet for 11.10 or that appeared on my terminal), so I’m switching for windows (i had C++ of a former school project), so I’ll try there.
