This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

There should be a curl-dev (or something like that) package available. –  mu is too short Nov 11 '11 at 7:26
How did you installed the curl package? –  Tio Pepe Nov 11 '11 at 7:27
sudo aptitude install libcurl-dev is the command to install libcurl on Ubuntu. Unless you have particular reasons, I suggest using the package provided by your distribution, not to install by hand. –  Basile Starynkevitch Nov 11 '11 at 7:33
@BasileStarynkevitch: Debian does not have libcurl-dev. It has libcurl4-openssl-dev and libcurl4-gnutls-dev and I don't think Ubuntu would differ. –  Jan Hudec Nov 11 '11 at 7:37
libcurl-dev is a virtual package on Debian. I have it on Debian/Sid. –  Basile Starynkevitch Nov 11 '11 at 7:38

apt-get install libcurl4-gnutls-dev


apt-get install libcurl4-openssl-dev

depending on whether you want to use gnutls or openssl for SSL.

Only improvement to this answer would be to explain why you would choose one over the other. –  Dobes Vandermeer Mar 31 '14 at 18:49
