Thread: installing clanlib on dev-c++

  1. #1

    Default installing clanlib on dev-c++

    I have problem with installing ClanLib on dev-c++

    I have installed libjpeg, libpng and zlib, and it worked fine, because I found the files at the update section with dev-c++

    Then I used Packman (a dev-c++ to install packs...) and pointed to the .zip file I downloaded at but when I try to compile something I got a few errors like:

    ClanLib/core.h: No such file or directory
    ClanLib/display.h: No such file or directory
    ClanLib/gl.h: No such file or directory
    ClanLib/application.h: No such file or directory

    and the code I'm trying to compile is:
    #include <ClanLib/core.h>
    #include <ClanLib/display.h>
    #include <Clanlib/gl.h>
    #include <ClanLib/application.h>
    class cClanLibApp : public CL_ClanApplication
      virtual int main(int, char **)
        CL_SetupCore setup_core;
        CL_SetupDisplay setup_display;
        CL_SetupGL setup_gl;
        CL_SetupSound Setup_sound;
        CL_DisplayWindow window("test", 640, 480);
        return 0;
    maybe the code isn't so important, but I add it anyway....

    i'm so frustrated! so if anyone know what to do, plz help me!

    I'm greatful to answers

    forget about ClanLib, it'll only give you headache
    have you tried Allegro?? it's a very nice game programming library, the syntax
    is easy to learn. unlike clanlib it won't give you a headache because you can
    install it easily. here check it out


    you can download Allegro Devpak here:

    you might want to try these devpaks out. exclusively for Dev-C++

    Man, thats harsh.

    I have shipped a product based on ClanLib and found it to be a very capable system as well as being easy to get going. Maybe ClanLib is written by people that think like me, but I am guessing not.

    Besides, what kind of person joins a forum only to trash the host?

    BTW: Your links don't work

    I think I understand what he means. I did have a headache when I installed Clanlib, many times. But that didn't stop me. I went through it again, until I got it installed and found out it was as awesome as I though it would be. Allegro is nothing compared to Clanlib.

    The problem is that none of the main developers use Dev-C++, so therefore we can do nothing but apply patches from that community - and we haven't received any.
