Im trying to install the boost libraries and entered sudo apt-get libboost* i managed to set the include paths and the header-only librarys are working. when I try other libraries like regex I get an "reference not found" error Where do I set the paths for the Linker and what path do I need to set? (cant find the files on my file system)
If you want to use libboost in eclipse you also need the header files or libboost-something-dev.
Then in CDT project properties->Build->Settings->compiler->include path
Then in CDT project properties->Build->Settings->linker->libraries
Just a note: Using the global include and lib directories gets you automatic updates to components on apt-get update && apt-get upgrade + recompile. I personally like to cherry pick the .h and .a/.o files I need and put the in a project specific ./include and ./lib subfolder within the project.
