Do you have any ideas?..

did not work that way, cmake error

Hi! I had the same problem. First make sure you have entire boost garbage installed:

sudo apt-get install libboost-all-dev

And then from the newly created build folder in main Cinder directory run:


The “D” is important.

you don’t actually need to pull the entire Boost madness but rather only the dev packages for libboost-system and libboost-filesystem.

Also, I suppose it is just a typo but the command should be cmake .. -DCINDER_BOOST_USE_SYSTEM=1 ( note the .. instead of ... for the parent path )
