Building Example from Code with CMakeGUI

Post by Athlete » Thu Apr 12, 2018 5:52 pm

Hi there,

I'm trying to build the example into a new VS project using the supplied CMake files and CMakeGUI. However, CMake is giving me trouble with SDL2. I have downloaded the SDL2 libs and include files, however I'm not sure where I need to put them so CMake can find them.

Please advise.

The error from CMake 3.11.0 is:

Code: Select all

CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:49 (find_package):
  By not providing "FindSDL2.cmake" in CMAKE_MODULE_PATH this project has
  asked CMake to find a package configuration file provided by "SDL2", but
  CMake did not find one.

  Could not find a package configuration file provided by "SDL2" with any of
  the following names:

    SDL2Config.cmake
    sdl2-config.cmake

  Add the installation prefix of "SDL2" to CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH or set
  "SDL2_DIR" to a directory containing one of the above files.  If "SDL2"
  provides a separate development package or SDK, be sure it has been
  installed.
Thanks!
