Hi all, I'm getting the following error when trying to build kicad

UserWarning: wxPython/wxWidgets release number mismatch
   warnings.warn("wxPython/wxWidgets release number mismatch")
-- Found wxPython (wxWidgets
-- Found wxWidgets: 
(found suitable version "3.2.1", minimum required is "")
CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:795 (message):
   Cannot find wxPython.h

-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!
See also "/tmp/SBo/kicad-5.1.9/build/CMakeFiles/CMakeOutput.log".

a quick find / -iname wxPython.h comes up with

any ideas on how to fix.?

I have the latest wxwidgets installed (used by audacity), and also 
wxPython (used by youtube-dl-gui) and wxPython3 (used by kicad)

regards, Tim
