Jens' (un-)official debian-repository for Code::Blocks

Code::Blocks is a free, open-source, cross-platform (not only) C++ - IDE.

The software is completely free, and will continue to be free.
But the server is not free and my coffee consumption is growing rapidly, while working on the packages.
A small donation would help me to fund at least the latter.

We have a new stable release: 13.12.
You can download it from our Code::Blocks-Server.
We have tar-balls containing all *.deb's for i386 and amd64.
To download the debug-version, use the tarball('s) containing "-dbg".
The sources I build the packages from are also available.
The packages are build against wxWidgets 2.8.12 .
If you need help you can read the actual (or older) posts in the Code::Blocks - forum or search the Code::Blocks - wiki.
Before asking questions, please use the "search"-function.

I will continue to provide nightly-builds from svn-source, because improving C::B and sometimes bugfixing it will, of course, continue.

A complete changelog (from svn revision 1 to HEAD) can be found into my packages or here.

There are also packages available that make it easier to cross-compile wxWidgets applications for MS Windows with Code::Blocks under linux.
A detailed instruction how to do this can be found in the Code::Blocks - wiki.

Since May 2013 I build packages for debian stable (wheezy) and debian testing (jessie).

There are no packages for debian testing available at the moment, due to the switch to wxWidgets 3.0.
Sorry for the inconvenience.

The debianization was originally done by Yiannis Mandravellos (Mandrav) the project-leader of the Code::Blocks-Team.

The packages are build with pbuilder in a chroot-environment.

The following steps have to be done as user root, or using sudo !

To install the packages using apt or one of its frontends please add the following lines to your /etc/apt/sources.list :
for stable:

deb [arch=amd64,i386] wheezy main
deb-src wheezy main
deb [arch=amd64,i386] stable main
deb-src stable main

for testing and unstable:

Packages for testing and unstable are not available at the moment.

To install the actual release version instead of the nightlies using apt or one of its frontends please use the same lines in your /etc/apt/sources.list but replace the section main with release.

The best and easiest way to add my public-key to apt's trustdb is to install the package jens-lody-debian-keyring with your preferred package-manager or with:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install jens-lody-debian-keyring
Note for Ubuntu-users:
The contrib-plugins package for debian can not be used on Ubuntu 12.04 and 12.10, due to an incomaptible libhunspell-package.

Alternatively you can use the Ubuntu repo provided by our user pasgui.

You can also download the C::B binary-packages and sources directly from the stable/pool or testing/pool directory.
The sources can be used on all platforms. You can unpack them (for example) with 7z.

The wxWidgets-packages needed to run Code::Blocks will be installed automagically if you have the appropriate entry in /etc/apt/sources.list.
But if you also want to use wxWidgets for your own programs you need to install at least libwxgtk2.8-dev.

The repo is called (un-)official, because it's on my private server and it's up to me to provide updates and bugfixes.
I try to keep the repositories on my server up to date.
But I can't guarantee that I have the time to do it every day.
If you find any bugs in Code::Blocks please read the posts in the Code::Blocks - forum or view Code::Blocks BTS before you file a bug-report yourself.

Nevertheless, if you want to contact me directly, you can send me an E-Mail or a Personal Message via the Code::Blocks - forum (nickname jens).
