Can't install GLVisualize

glvisualize

#1

I am trying to install GLVisualize ( https://github.com/JuliaGL/GLVisualize.jl ) in Julia. When I run:

Pkg.test("GLVisualize")

I get:

Pkg.test("GLVisualize")

How can I fix this?


#2

This means that the tests don’t run, but not that you can’t install the package. Do you get issues with Pkg.add("GLVisualize") or using GLVisualize?
BTW, it is probably better to open this as a github issue on the GLVisualize.jl repo, and much more likely to catch @sdanisch (the main developer of GLVisualize) there.


#3

I believe I got an error when I first ran Pkg.add(), but now I only get this:

julia> Pkg.add("GLVisualize")
INFO: Nothing to be done
INFO: METADATA is out-of-date — you may not have the latest version of GLVisualize
INFO: Use `Pkg.update()` to get the latest versions of your packages

#4

Try Pkg.add("GLFW")? An issue can be opened here: https://github.com/JuliaGL/GLVisualize.jl/issues/new


#5

I found the solution is an old Issue:

GLFW needs the package xorg-dev. After installing this it worked.

Thanks
