cwdaemon install problem on Mint/Ubuntu
- I'm currently trying to install the latest version of cwdaemon 0.9.7.
When I run ./configure I see the following error:
Can't find libcw5 from unixcw package.
I found via Google that for some reason Ubuntu have removed the unixcw lib from it's distro.
So I ran:
git clone git://git.code.sf.net/p/unixcw/code unixcw-code
to reinstall it, however ./configure still reports, Can't find libcw5 from unixcw package.
Has anyone managed to install cwdaemon 0.9.7 on a Linux Mint 14 PC.
I'ts not a big issue as I have cwdaemon 0.9.4 running however due to the lack of libcw5 output to the sound card doesn't work.

You stated that you "installed" unixcw-3.2.0. Was this a build/install from the source? If not, is there a development package from the distribution that needs to be installed? I'm not familiar with the debian based systems so I can't point it out to you.
I built/installed both unixcw-3.2.0 and cwdaemon on my x86_64, Fedora 18 system, and it took a little work to discover the problem as I couldn't immediately configure cwdaemon.
I think that as the name implies, unixcw was designed specifically for a unix/freebsd system and that system architecture is a little different from most Linux systems. Unix/Freebsd uses /lib or /usr/lib for both 32 bit and 64 bit libraries. cwdaemon, on an x86_64 system, correctly expects the libs and libcw.pc file to be in a lib64 folder
You might give building/installing another try keeping the above information in mind when configuring the builds.
To compile unixcw for an x86_64 system
./configure --libpath=/usr/lib64 #installs executable and other files to default prefix (/usr/local) and libs to /usr/lib64 and libcw.pc to /usr/lib/pkgconfig/
It doesn't matter too much where you install the executable and other files, but on a Linux system, I believe libraries must be in the "known" library paths (/lib, lib64, /usr/lib and /usr/lib64).
Don't forget to run ldconfig before trying to run the cwdaemon or you will still get the missing libcw.so.5.0.0 error.
I haven't actually tried to use it as I don't have the correct hardware, but it does start up without any error messagesl.

Strange thing is I've installed the unixcw-3.2.0 lib but still get the missing libcw5 error ?

Isn't unixcw the package name you need? I believe that the unixcw-3.2.0
is the latest and provides the libcw5 library.
