How to resolve : ” fatal error: curl/curl.h: No such file or directory ” for Ubuntu Linux

If you are developing some native C application based on curl API’s ( https://curl.haxx.se/libcurl/c/ ) , you will need to include necessary header at the top of the C program as,

[c] #include <curl/curl.h> [/c]

Now, if you use such header and tried to compile on ubuntu, you may see an error like “fatal error: curl/curl.h: No such file or directory” . In such case, use below command as solution to install missing development headers dependency for ubuntu.

 $ sudo apt-get install libcurl4-nss-dev 

Where, ibcurl4-nss-dev is described as “development files and documentation for libcurl (OpenSSL flavour)”

  1. If you can’t install common Bioconductor packages and see the error “____ dependency is not available” the above might solve your issue.

    Thanks for the fix, worked like a charm!
