Thank you Benedict for the quick response. Good to know that it is an error based on the distribution. I retried using Debian for WSL and everything works fine now.

Some other users have also reported this error on Ubuntu 20.04.
If you do not need the dxfparser (most users don't), you can get around the problem by editing the file
Remove the dxfparser from the line

DIRS = gts postabq dxfparser

Then run the command

make -C pyformex/extra build

Dear all,

I'm trying to install pyformex 2.4 on Ubunutu 20.04 following the install instructions for pyformex 2.0.

I installed the dependencies as explained in the description and everything worked smoothly (no errors). However, when building pyformex the command

make -C pyformex/extra build

fails, which I believe is due to an undefinded reference in dxfparser.cc. I attached my terminal output. Initially i thought that maybe dxflib was missing but my system tells me that both libdxflib-dev and libdxflib3 are installed. If it helps: I could reproducte the same error on Ubuntu and WSL Ubuntu (Windows Subsystem for Linux).

Can someone help me with this issue?

Kind regards,

Joscha Fregin <joscha>
