    Upgrade wxGTK to 2.8*

    I'm using Code::Blocks compiler, and found that there is a bug regarding old versions of wxGTK (That caused the program to crash). I'm not sure how to upgrade, but on the wxWidgets Web site it said to add this:
    deb dapper main

    However I don't really know what it means. I tried just going to that url and it had several .deb packages. I would be grateful if someone could assist me in upgrading my wxGTK to version 2.8.4

    Have you ever installed or upgraded packages before? That's basically what you need to do here.

    The process is different for the various flavours of Linux, but basically you launch a package manager and select a package to install or whatever.

    Check out this Wikipedia entry:

    If you're using Debian Linux, try this:

    Seek and ye shall find. quaere et invenies.
