I follow the instrutions on

In the make step, after cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/opt/ros/fuerte -DSETUPTOOLS_DEB_LAYOUT=OFF

it stops at [ 60%] Built target test_rosbag_genpy Linking CXX shared library ../../lib/librxtools.dylib Undefined symbols for architecture x86_64: "wxRichTextCtrl::ms_classInfo", referenced from: rxtools::TextboxDialog::onChar(wxKeyEvent&) in rosout_list_control.cpp.o "wxRichTextCtrl::wxRichTextCtrl(wxWindow, int, wxString const&, wxPoint const&, wxSize const&, long, wxValidator const&, wxString const&)", referenced from: rxtools::TextboxDialog::TextboxDialog(wxWindow, int, wxString const&, wxPoint const&, wxSize const&, long) in rosout_generated.cpp.o "wxRichTextBuffer::BeginTextColour(wxColour const&)", referenced from: wxRichTextCtrl::BeginTextColour(wxColour const&) in rosout_list_control.cpp.o "wxRichTextBuffer::BeginBold()", referenced from: wxRichTextCtrl::BeginBold() in rosout_list_control.cpp.o ld: symbol(s) not found for architecture x86_64 clang: error: linker command failed with exit code 1 (use -v to see invocation) make[2]: * [lib/librxtools.dylib] Error 1 make[1]: [rx/rxtools/CMakeFiles/rxtools.dir/all] Error 2 make: ** [all] Error 2

All previous steps has been followed without errors. Is there anything I am missing?

reinstalling wxPython and using the latest version, instead of the one linked to in the guide solved the problem. This is just a note to others having the same problem.

I can't accept my own answer as the correct answer, becuase my karma is too low. So if anyone with enough karma could close the question, so it won't show in the unanswered list?

I am having this same issue and wanted to follow your steps. Can you please advice on the command that you used?

Sorry, no. It's been some months since I did this, and since I never managed to make it work, I decided to scrap the installation and wait for the next version to see, if OSX support was better.
