Have just moved some development from a Fedora system to Ubuntu, but I'm having a few problems.

I cannot find which package provides stb_image.h. On Fedora it was something starting stb or stbi, but nothing like that seems to exist with the synaptic package manager.

Can anyone point me to the right thing.

    May libsoil-dev package be related (it has /usr/include/SOIL/stb_image_aug.h)? – N0rbert Jan 2 '18 at 20:59

It doesn't look like it's been packaged by anybody, but you can always clone from source:

git clone https://github.com/nothings/stb.git
sudo cp stb/stb_image.h /usr/local/include/
  • Ok. Thanks done that. Works. Just a little suprised it's not available on Ubuntu, whereas it is with Fedora. Fedora are usually very picky about what they package. – j harris Jan 3 '18 at 17:28
  • Cool! If you wouldn't mind, please accept my answer since it worked for you. – nixpower Jan 3 '18 at 17:30
