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

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.

  • By installing "qt-sdk" from software center you will get all libs and I`ve just downloaded "qt-linux-opensource-5.0.1-x86-offline.run" one weak ago you just download the 4.8 and double click it to install.

  • Download these two files - releases.qt-project.org/qt4/source/… - releases.qt-project.org/qt5/5.0.1/…

  • 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.

  • Also you can install libs from software center by installing "qt-sdk"
