I’ve looked at several possible solutions to try to fix this, but I’m still having the following issue with drawing text with SDL_ttf and SDL2.
[email protected]:~/Documents/SDL/Font Demo/pt2$ make g++ texttest.cpp -w -lSDL2 -lSDL2_ttf -LSDL2_image -o texttest /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lSDL2_ttf collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status Makefile:23: recipe for target 'all' failed make: *** [all] Error 1
My Makefile is as follows:
OBJS = texttest.cpp #CC specifies which compiler we're using CC = g++ #COMPILER_FLAGS specifies the additional compilation options we're using # -w suppresses all warnings COMPILER_FLAGS = -w #LINKER_FLAGS specifies the libraries we're linking against LINKER_FLAGS = -lSDL2 -lSDL2_ttf -LSDL2_image #OBJ_NAME specifies the name of our exectuable OBJ_NAME = texttest #This is the target that compiles our executable all : $(OBJS) $(CC) $(OBJS) $(COMPILER_FLAGS) $(LINKER_FLAGS) -o $(OBJ_NAME)
Thanks in advance for any help.
I solved this by running
sudo apt-get install libsdl2-ttf-dev
where as previously I tried to fix it with
sudo apt-get install libsdl-ttf2.0-dev
