I want to install CodeLite.  I followed the instructions on the website.

Because I'm running Linux Mint 17.1 x64, I added repositories for ubuntu utopic, trusty and vivid universe.

Now when I run apt install codelite wxcrafter I get:

 codelite : depends: libglib2.0-0 (>= 2.41.1) but 2.40.2 is installed instead-0ubuntu1  

            depends: libhunspell-1.3-0 (>= 1.3.3)but 1.3.2-6ubuntu2 is installed instead
            depends: liblldb-3.4 but is not installable
            depends: libstdc++6 (>= 4.9) but 4.8.2-19ubuntu1 is installed instead
            suggests: nodejs but is not going to be installed

I tried the answer on this question but the links given are broken.

I think the problem is that some dependencies are either new for my Mint (aka libglib2) or somewhat old (aka liblldb).

I can see liblldb-3.5 with apt-cache search.  Installing it didn't remove "depends: liblldb-3.4" line.

I tried looking for libglib2.0-0.  I found version 2.44 on Debian's page and downloaded it, but installing it has broken my system and I had to format my hard drive.

So what to do to install CodeLite 8 on Linux Mint 17.1 64-bit Cinnamon?


For mint 17.1 use http://repos.codelite.org/ubuntu/ trusty universe

In terms of the steps,

  1. Remove all other codelite repos from /etc/apt/sources.list.d/additional-repositories.list
  2. Add the proper repo: sudo apt-add-repository 'deb http://repos.codelite.org/ubuntu/ trusty universe'
  3. Update sources: sudo apt-get update
  4. Install codelite: sudo apt-get install codelite

This should install all dependencies and codelite properly.

  • codelite is found in the main repositories, right Now I don't have any PPA or additional repo that contains it, do I just remove the main repositories ? Can I remove an entry from a repository ? – niceman Aug 1 '15 at 11:40
  • according to your OP you have added both the utopic and trusty repos. That might not work well in terms of getting all dependencies sorted. I would check the /etc/apt/sources.list.d/additional-repositories.list and make sure there is only one entry similar to deb repos.codelite.org/ubuntu trusty universe – D. Luffy Aug 1 '15 at 23:49
