Installing Code::Blocks from source on Mageia 7
This a small tutorial from this original french web site: 
Here the translation:

For this small tutorial, i propose to create a folder: Codeblocks. And to open a console at this path.
The hierarchy will be like that:
/Codeblocks* | *-/bin # binaries generated by the command | # «make install» | *-/codeblocks-code* # sources | | | *-configure # generate by «bootstrap» | *-build.sh # This script generate the «configure» # file, make and build the solution. # The binaries will be install into # the «bin» folder.
First clone the Codeblocks repository :
svn checkout https://svn.code.sf.net/p/codeblocks/code/trunk codeblocks-code
The folder will be like that:
It's propable that the transfer failed lots of time. To pass-through you have to repeat the checkout like that:
cd codeblocks-code svn cleanup cd .. svn checkout https://svn.code.sf.net/p/codeblocks/code/trunk codeblocks-code
Install the dependancies:
Remark for hunspell select your languages.
su urpmi autoconf libtool automake lib64squirrel-devel hunspell hunspell-fr hunspell-en lib64hunspell-devel lib64wxgtku3.0-devel lib64tinyxml-devel lib64gamin-devel exit
Update the repository, build and install localy:
The build will be install into the folder Codeblocks/bin. To that execute the next script in the Codeblocks folder.
# Absolute path to this script, e.g. /home/user/bin/foo.sh SCRIPT=$(readlink -f "$0") # Absolute path this script is in, thus /home/user/bin SCRIPTPATH=$(dirname "$SCRIPT") cd "$SCRIPTPATH" cd codeblocks-code svn revert --recursive . svn update # You can call «cd codeblock-code | svn cleanup --remove-unversioned» before to launch this script to clean all the generated files. if [ -f ./configure ]; then make clean make distclean make clean-bin make clean-zipfiles else ./bootstrap fi ./configure --prefix="$SCRIPTPATH/bin" --with-contrib-plugins=all make -j $(($(nproc) -1)) make install
./configure: line 21397: AM_OPTIONS_WXCONFIG: command not found ./configure: line 21398: syntax error near unexpected token `3.0.0,' ./configure: line 21398: `AM_PATH_WXCONFIG(3.0.0, wxWin=1)'
Maybe you have generate the ./configure file before to have install the wx3 dev libraries. You can try to clean all the generated files like that:
cd codeblock-code svn cleanup --remove-unversioned cd ..
After that call again the last script build.sh.
If it doesn't work you can begin an investigation here: https://wiki.wxwidgets.org/Autoconf
