I would like to install CodeLite on my Ubuntu system, but when I try to install it using the Software Center, it gives me an error:

codelite: Depends: libgcc1 (>= 1:4.1.1) but 1:4.8.1-2ubuntu1~12.04 is to be installed
          Depends: libjpeg8 (>= 8c) but 8c-2ubuntu7 is to be installed
          Depends: zlib1g (>= 1:1.1.4) but 1: is to be installed

If I try to install these packages trough the console it basically tells me they are already installed:

Command: sudo apt-get install libgcc1

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree

libgcc1 is already the newest version.

First download dependencies:

wget http://ubuntu.intergenia.de/ubuntu//pool/universe/t/tiff3/libtiff4_3.9.7-0ubuntu1_i386.deb
wget http://nl.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/j/jbigkit/libjbig0_2.0-2ubuntu1_i386.deb

Then install dependencies:

sudo dpkg -i libjbig0_2.0-2ubuntu1_i386.deb
sudo dpkg -i libtiff4_3.9.7-0ubuntu1_i386.deb


- The deb files are for i386 systems! If you have a 64bit system, replace the i386 with amd64 when downloading.

- In my test these are not needed anymore in trusty.

Update: - Links are now dead


The following commands install the latest codelite which is - at the time of writing - 6.1

 sudo apt-key adv --fetch-keys http://repos.codelite.org/CodeLite.asc
 sudo apt-add-repository "deb http://repos.codelite.org/ubuntu/ $(lsb_release -sc) universe"
 sudo apt-get update
 sudo apt-get install codelite wxcrafter

Supported distributions

precice(12.04), quantal(12.10), raring(13.04), saucy(13.10), trusty(14.04), utopic(14.10).

Note: Trusty currently sports the 2.8v(crashes when trying to close)



codelite 6.1 Ubuntu 14.04(amd64)

12.04 codelite 5.2 Ubuntu 12.04(i386)

13.04 codelite 5.2 Ubuntu 13.04(amd64)


codelite 5.2 Ubuntu 13.10(amd64)
