What do I need to install
qt development libraries, so that I can then compile
I can reasonably handle the C/C++ side of things, but I somehow always get lost whenever I try to set up a compiler/libraries, etc...
These instructions are from SMPlayer's Install.txt
You need at least Qt 4.3 to compile smplayer.
It won't work with an older version.
Be sure you have installed the Qt 4 development package.
Its name maybe qt4-devel, libqt4-dev or similar.
Unfortunately, this doesn't say much to me for two reasons.
- I simply don't know what "similar" means (eg. how can different packages be "similar"?)
libqt4-dev, as mentioned, is in the Lucid repository, but I got a slew of 17 "unresolved dependencies" messages when I marked
libqt4-devin Synaptic Package Manager.. (I thought the package manager automatically included any required dependencies) ... Here is one of the messages: Depends: libqt4-script (=4:4.6.2-0ubuntu5) but 4:4.6.2-0ubuntu5.2 is to be installed
I'm thinking to use
codeblocks for the IDE (because I've used it in Windows ("from whence I came", and ain't going back! :) ... Aside from the issue of what to install, will I need to explicitly tell
qt, or will it install to a known library path?
