Rust Bindings help

Hi, I recently found the rust bindings github page and was interested in using the bindings. However I’ve encountered some errors and after searching the internet I have not been able to find any resources on how to get started. I get the following error, it is caused when I try to run one of the examples

error: linking with link.exe failed: exit code: 1181


= note: LINK : fatal error LNK1181: cannot open input file ‘rgbmatrix.lib’

Installing VSC Build tools has not seemed to fix the error, any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Mmmh, I know nothing about building on windows, but on unix that would be the -L flag to gcc, telling it where to find libraries, .a or .so files to link against.

Thanks! I decided to run it from the PI, things were running a lot smoother. Unfortunately, I ran into another error

/home/pi/.cargo/registry/src/ undefined reference to `led_matrix_create_from_options_and_rt_options’
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

Doesn’t seem to be binding?

The points to the directory in which the libraries are contained.

Fixed the problem! Was incorrectly linking to the library. Thanks again.

Hey there!
I am having the same Problem compiling in Rust as you, @drd.
Could you maybe elaborate what you did to make it work?

Thank you very much!

Alright, I solved the Problem.
What I did was copy the contents from the lib folder in the rpi-rgb-led-matrix to the target/debug/deps folder of my Rust project!

Nice, you can also point to the folder from the rust file using “cargo:rustc-link-search”

So the file would look like this for example.

extern crate gcc;
fn main () {
println!(“cargo:rustc-flags=-l dylib=stdc++”);

I found this useful for doing multiple rust projects.
