Last week I did a fresh install of Ubuntu 14.10 on a formatted disk, and still had the script fail as it could not detect wxwidgets 3.0 (although a check confirmed that I had it already installed). As I needed it to be up and running as soon as I could manage, I instead tried the manual install instructions at this link:
and that worked fine - resulting in ver 5256 being installed.
I tried again today, and it still failed at step 6, but with a different error:
step 6) compiling source code...

I can post the contents of the CMakeOutput.log if someone wants to take a stab at figuring out the error.
