Project ERROR: Easiest to copy the Boost library to ..., so that you have .../boost_1_xx_0


#1

Hi, all:

I actually manually installed boost via sudo ./b2 install, it seems there is NO boost.pc generated in ANY pkgconfig. In such, I always obtained the ERROR message:

Project ERROR: Easiest to copy the Boost library to ..., so that you have .../boost_1_xx_0

Just wonder how to modify pri/boostdetect.pri to have the manually installed boost detected?

Cheers
Pei

I’m unclear what you are trying to do here. Are you trying to build Fritzing from source (which is the only time you need to configure boost)? If so copy your copy of boost in to fritzing-app/src/lib/boost-xxx which is where the build expects to find it. If you just want to run Fritzing you should download the appropriate .zip file for your machine and install it (boost is included).
