X11 Development Libraries?

Mon Jan 21, 2013 2:27 am

Hello. I am quite new to Linux, and am having some issues/questions.
Mainly, I need the X11 development libraries. How could I download and install those in Raspbian Wheezy?

Thank you. :)

Try "sudo apt-get install libx11-dev". For many libraries, if you want to develop code with them you need to install a package with the same name but with a -dev appended. "dpkg -l | more" will show you all the packages you have installed, which might give you some clues as to what -dev packages you want.

Aah, okay. So I'll try "sudo apt-get install libx11-dev" later today when I hook my RPi up to the Internet.
I'll let you know how it goes. Thanks! :D
