wxgui loading error for GRASS7 on Ubuntu 9.10

Reported by: isaacullah Owned by: grass-dev@…
Priority: major Milestone: 7.0.0
Component: Default Version: svn-trunk
Keywords: libgdal Cc:
CPU: x86-64 Platform: Linux


After successful compiling and installation of GRASS 7 on Ubuntu 9.10, the grass launcher GUI loads properly, but after selection of location and mapset, only the terminal is present, and no gui. Executing g.gui yields the following errors:

  GRASS 7.0.svn (Penaguila_highres):~/grass_7_source/grass_trunk > 
WARNING: Vector digitizer is not available (No module named grass7_wxvdigit).

Note that vector digitizer is currently not working under MS Windows (hopefully will be fixed soon). Please try more recent version of GRASS.

I am using Ubuntu 9.10, and have compiled GRASS 7 from latest SVN source code. Here are my compile options:

./configure --enable-64bit --with-lesstif --with-freetype=yes --with-freetype-includes=/usr/include/freetype2 --with-cxx --with-nls --with-gdal=/usr/bin/gdal-config --with-proj --with-proj-includes=/usr/include --with-proj-libs=/usr/lib --with-python=/usr/bin/python-config --with-wxwidgets=/usr/bin/wx-config --with-wxwidgets=/etc/alternatives/wx-config --with-tcltk-includes=/usr/include/tcl8.5/ --with-cario --enable-largefile --with-readline --with-blas-libs=/usr/lib/ --with-pthread

With compile output:

Replying to isaacullah:

> g.list: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Apparently not related to the GUI, just broken reference to GDAL/OGR library.

Okay, I want to confirm that I do have a installed in /usr/lib. It links to /usr/lib/, which is the only GDAL header I have installed on my machine. GRASS should be able to find this header file as it is in the standard location.

Keywords: libgdal added; Ubuntu fails to load GUI removed

I can reproduce the error on Fedora 13 64bit.

  1. configure - make - no make install
  1. run ./bin.i686-pc-linux-gnu/grass70

No library error running the correct architecture executable.

Maybe make install chooses the wrong architecture?
