Thanks John, I did clone the googletest-master at https://github.com/google/googletest which has gmock incorporated. I will try pointing GMOCK_ROOT and GTEST_ROOT at the copies within my user directory that I installed it from as a shared library in usr/local. I will also check the permissions on the shared library to see if that is what is causing a problem.
I will incorporate the patch https://github.com/Gnucash/gnucash/pull/329 into the existing code and use v1.8.0 from now on. I have not found a successful description on the ubuntu and linux mint forums for how to properly install google test as a shared library. The readme under googletest on github still describes the setup for v 1.7.0. I had changed the install to put the libraries and includes in what seemed like appropriate locations under /usr/local. I would have got further today but unfortunately the weather here was magnificent so I opted for fishing from my kayak instead but I will get back to it tonight Cheers David ----- David Cousens -- Sent from: http://gnucash.1415818.n4.nabble.com/GnuCash-Dev-f1435356.html _______________________________________________ gnucash-devel mailing list email@example.com https://lists.gnucash.org/mailman/listinfo/gnucash-devel
