in reply to Need help installing wxWidgets 2.9.4

You will need to manually install Alien::wxWidgets like this:
perl Build.PL --wxWidgets-version=2.9.4 ./Build ./Build test ./Build install
That's all, believe it or not:-).

    Thank you, Khen1950fx. This sounds cool.
    I'll try it in a couple of hours and report back.

    BTW, do I have to uninstall anything before doing the builds?

    Also, when I go: perl Build.PL --wxWidgets-version=2.9.4
    does it pull it from CPAN repositories over the NET, or to I have to point it to a local tarball?

    Many TIA - Helen

    UPDATE: when I go: perl Build.PL it complains it can't find the script "Build.PL".
    I notice that ...\Perl\lib\Module\ and ...\Perl\lib\CPANPLUS\Dist\ do exist.
    What to do?

      You have to install it manually. Download the tarball from CPAN, put it in a directory of its own, untar it, and then run the install process. Everything you need will be in the file that you untarred, so you're not going through CPAN for this. Also, you're not building a customized wxWidgets, so there's no linking involved. Get it a try. If you have any problems, come back here.
        Khen1950fx: apologizing if this is a newbie question:
        When I inquire for Module::Build (in CPANPLUS), I get:

        So I have Module::Build installed.
        But, like I mentioned above, when I go:

        >perl Build.PL
        Can't open perl script "Build.PL": No such file or directory
        It can't find "Build.PL".
        What to do?

        Many TIA - Helen

      Thank you, Khen1950fx. This sounds cool.

      You really shouldn't listen to Khen1950fx :) but if you want this waste-of-time-approach start with cpanp -z Alien::wxWidgets

        You really shouldn't listen to this particular AnonymousMonk:-). I recommended a manual install because I prefer it to cpanp -z, and that's the way I do it. However, you should do it that way if it's easier for you.
