What is the problem?
When trying to install Slic3r using the guide found here:
I get this error:
Slic3r requires the boost libraries. Please make sure they are installed.
If they are installed, this script should be able to locate them in several standard locations. If this is not the case, you might want to supply their path through the BOOST_INCLUDEPATH and BOOST_LIBRARYPATH environment variables:
BOOST_INCLUDEPATH=/usr/local/include BOOST_LIBRARYPATH=/usr/lib perl Build.PL
If you just compiled Boost in its source directory without installing it in the system you can just provide the BOOST_DIR variable pointing to that directory.
! Configure failed for ./xs. See /root/.cpanm/work/1555088675.5463/build.log for details.
The XS/C++ code failed to compile, aborting
What did you already try to solve it?
I did some research which told me to run:
sudo apt-get install libboost-system-dev libboost-thread-dev
So I did and got a message saying:
libboost-system-dev is already the newest version
libboost-thread-dev is already the newest version
I have looked around everywhere but can't find what to do to correct the error any help would be appreciated!
