I tried to use Qt5 but I have some problems while making Debian packaging process with Qt5 so I would like to have Qt4 on Ubuntu 12.10. How can I install Qt4.

Have you tried installing from USC – Mitch Mar 30 '13 at 10:40

Just download Qt-4.8 from here and run the self-installer

or install it from ubuntu software center (two package)


qt creator

I installed qt using software center but I only get qt creator and not libs, but if I download qt4 from link you posted I get only libs which I need to compile, and that takes really too much time. – Alen Mar 30 '13 at 12:58
By installing "qt-sdk" from software center you will get all libs and I`ve just downloaded "" one weak ago you just download the 4.8 and double click it to install. – MostafaJF Mar 30 '13 at 15:38
Download these two files -… -… – MostafaJF Mar 30 '13 at 15:42
I installed Qt5 already but there is no install file for Qt4 libs which I downloaded from your link, I have to compile it but it takes too much time. – Alen Mar 30 '13 at 17:28
Also you can install libs from software center by installing "qt-sdk" – MostafaJF Mar 30 '13 at 19:34
