Recently I've been playing around with the SDL library and wanted to start using libsdl2-image-2.0-0 along with SDL. I have been trying to get this working with Ubuntu 15.04. I have installed the package using
sudo apt-get install libsdl2-image-2.0-0
The installation appeared to go completely fine but when I try to include the image library in my C++ code with
I get an error "fatal error: SDL2/SDL_image.h: No such file or directory" I went and looked where the SDL2 base library was located /usr/local/include/SDL2 and just as the error message said SDL_image.h was not there. I then tried to figure out where the library was using
apt-file search SDL_image.h
When I do this
libsdl-image1.2-dev: /usr/include/SDL/SDL_image.h libsdl2-image-dev: /usr/include/SDL2/SDL_image.h
both show up as results. This is strange to me since I did not install libsdl2-image-dev. Also when I try to view /usr/include/SDL2/ the folder doesn't even appear to exist which just adds to my confusion.
I then tried to remove libsdl2-image-dev so I could install libsdl2-image-2.0-0 but when I run the command
sudo apt-get remove libsdl2-image-dev
Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Package 'libsdl2-image-dev' is not installed, so not removed 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 10 not upgraded.
and when I try to run the command
sudo apt-get install libsdl2-2.0-0
I end up getting
Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done libsdl2-2.0-0 is already the newest version. 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 10 not upgraded.
So basically I cannot locate where this library is and so I can't properly link it to my code. Is there a more reliable way to locate where this library is and is there something fundamental I am not understanding in regards to using these supplementary libraries?
