Libraries

NO COMPONENTS ARE LISTED AFTER REINSTALLING CANEDA INTO A DIFFERENT FOLDER

After reinstalling Caneda to a different system folder, it shows few or no components available at the sidebar browser.

This happens is because an obsolete configuration file is pointing to an empty library path.

Go to Settings and delete every library path one by one. Close the application and then open it again. Caneda will complete the missing library paths with default values and the components will be shown again at the sidebar browser.

Compilation

BASH: CMAKE: COMMAND NOT FOUND

After executing cmake ../ to install Caneda, the following error occurs:

bash: cmake: command not found

Check if package cmake is installed by executing aptitude show cmake. If it is actually not installed, execute aptitude install cmake as root. Then try again.

It is recommended to install the following packages at once, to avoid further compilation errors:

cmake
g++
qtbase5-dev
libqt5svg5-dev
qttools5-dev
qttools5-dev-tools

It is also recommended to install the optional package ngspice (simulation engine) as follows: aptitude install ngspice.

To install a package from the non-free Debian repository, first edit /etc/apt/sources.list, add the keyword non-free at the end of the distribution description (e.g. deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ stable main non-free) and then execute aptitude update as root. Finally, execute aptitude install <package>.

NO CMAKE_CXX_COMPILER COULD BE FOUND

After executing cmake ../ to install Caneda, the following error occurs:

-- The C compiler identification is GNU 4.9.2
-- The CXX compiler identification is unknown
-- Check for working C compiler: /usr/bin/cc
-- Check for working C compiler: /usr/bin/cc -- works
-- Detecting C compiler ABI info
-- Detecting C compiler ABI info - done
CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:3 (PROJECT):
  No CMAKE_CXX_COMPILER could be found.

  Tell CMake where to find the compiler by setting either the environment
  variable "CXX" or the CMake cache entry CMAKE_CXX_COMPILER to the full path
  to the compiler, or to the compiler name if it is in the PATH.

Check if C++ compiler is installed by executing aptitude show g++. If it is actually now installed, execute aptitude install g++ as root. Then try again.

It is recommended to install the following packages at once, to avoid further compilation errors:

g++
qtbase5-dev
libqt5svg5-dev
qttools5-dev
qttools5-dev-tools

Download qwt 6.1.2 and extract the tar.gz file into a temporary folder.

Compile qwt with Qt5:

$ /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/bin/qmake qwt.pro
$ make

If compilation finished without errors, install Qwt by executing make install with root privileges, in order to install qwt libraries into system folders.

Then, try again.

It is also recommended to install the optional package ngspice (simulation engine) as follows: aptitude install ngspice.

To install a package from the non-free Debian repository, first edit /etc/apt/sources.list, add the keyword non-free at the end of the distribution description (e.g. deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ stable main non-free) and then execute aptitude update as root.

LIBQWT.SO.6: CANNOT OPEN SHARED OBJECT FILE: NO SUCH FILE OR DIRECTORY

After executing caneda from a terminal emulator, the following error is displayed:

caneda: error while loading shared libraries: libqwt.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

If qwt 6.1.2 was installed from its source, the operating system does not know how to reach these libraries.

The solution is to execute Caneda from command line as follows:

$ LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/qwt-6.1.2/lib/ caneda

Then, Caneda GUI should be displayed.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
