I am trying to install Ogre software with CMake but it says I'm missing things. I found one and installed it (freetype) but I can't find (Xaw: X11 Athena widget set) or (X Toolkit). Is there an easier way to install this? This is all that I'm missing now.

CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:570 (message): X11 support requires Xcursor library.

After this I am unable to find it to run it. what happened to it?

Linking CXX executable ../../bin/OgreMeshUpgrader [100%] Built target OgreMeshUpgrader

I'm also looking for Xcursor library – jacob pfeiff Dec 3 '13 at 3:41
You should show us what are these "missing things", please copy the output, edit your question and paste it in your question. – Braiam Dec 3 '13 at 12:58

You don't mention what version of Ubuntu you're running nor what version of OGRE you are trying to install, however there is a libogre-dev package in the Precise repository, which should bring in libogre-1.7.4. There is also a ogre-tools package. You can see the various related packages for your system using apt-cache e.g.

apt-cache search --names-only ogre

If you really do need to install from source, then the xorg-dev metapackage should include libxt-dev and libxaw7-dev i.e. it should be sufficient to do

sudo apt-get install xorg-dev

Ubuntu 13.10 and Ogre 1.8.1 – jacob pfeiff Dec 3 '13 at 2:56

X11 Athena widget set can be installed from:

sudo apt-get install xaw3dg
