I installed CDT direct by extracting the tar. It detects the other compilers, but fails to recognize mingw32 as a compilation target. Any ideas? Unless you've tried a tutorial and it recognizes properly, please no links to the first 5 google results...I tried them.

By the way, I'm on 10.04 LTS. The same situation occurs on 11.04 and 11.10.

  • my hackish fix at the moment is to have a shellscript rename gcc to gcc-native and the mingw binary to gcc. this is a stop-gap hack NOT a solution. if somebody has a real fix, I'm open to suggestions. Jun 22, 2011 at 2:01

While this guide targets wxwidgets, it's the best answer I could find. Also, it targets windows, but the theory remains the same.
