Using Allegro with Anjuta...
March 07, 2006
Allegro is a simple game development library. More info on allegro is hereAnd [Anjuta](http://www.anjuta.org) is a popular IDE(Integrated Development Environment) for the [GNOME](http://www.gnome.org) environment. Well njuta doesn't come with inbuilt support for allegro (as of anjuta 1.2.4) so here is how to setup Anjuta to use the allegro libraries. Go to Settings -\> Compiler and Linker Settings -\> Options in the Anjuta development UI..Then just add the following code in the Additional Libraries(LDADD) : > > -L/usr/local/lib -L/usr/X11R6/lib -Wl,--export-dynamic -lalleg-4.2.0 -lalleg\_unsharable > > >
I am using allegro 4.2 and anjuta 1.2.4. However you can get the particular string to add in the additional libraries using the command > > allegro-config --libs > > >
in the terminal. More info on allegro and specific game development tutorials can be found [here](http://www.allegro.cc)
