• Error Compiling

    From Xanthoes@VERT to All on Sunday, July 12, 2020 13:42:55
    Not sure where to post the question, found this link on the wiki.

    I installed a brand new box running Ubuntu server 18.04, I followed the instructions I found at: https://gist.github.com/phuckewe/897d8559f2f6c287d07a

    I have also followed the instructions on the wiki as well, for manual compiling. Every time I get the same error:

    curs_cio.c: In function ‘curs_getch’:
    curs_cio.c:942:2: error: unknown type name ‘wint_t’; did you mean ‘uint8_t’?
    wint_t ch;
    ^~~~~~
    uint8_t
    curs_cio.c:953:9: warning: implicit declaration of function ‘get_wch’; did you mean ‘getch’? [-Wimplicit-function-declaration]
    while(get_wch(&ch)==ERR) {

    SNIP ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    you need the libncurses5w-dev package

    Sorry, here is the per-requisites that address your error http://wiki.synchro.net/install:nix:prerequisites

    :!: Note:
    On some Debian derived systems (e.g. Ubuntu Linux), libncurses-dev installs libncurses5-dev, and you get wint_t errors while building, you will need to install libncursesw5-dev.

    Those instructions are 6 years old. You're better referring to the wiki at https://wiki.synchro.net
