no opencascade headers files in /usr/include/

when i try to compile freecad:

configure: checking OpenCascade...
checking for /usr/include/OCC/Standard.hxx... no
configure: error:
**** Could not find OpenCascade header files.
Please check your installation. ****

Hi,
Have you found a fix for this? (Apart from copying the headers after the fact.)

Cheers

Hello,

I never compiled Freecad myself, but it seems to use autotools (configure, automake, etc.) for compilation. If that is the case, try configure --help and look for an option something like "--with-occ-include". It (normally) allows you specify exact locations for header files.

Hope it helps,

Marco

Hi,
Thanks, I did use that, so I am in business, but wanted to confirm the OpenCASCADE behavior that seemed a little strange (and non-standard) to me.

Cheers

Lou
