On a fresh Lubuntu 13.04 installation, I installed Qt5 from the official ubuntu repositories. But this installation of Qt5 can't find the QtQuick module. What am I missing?

qmlscene test.qml


import QtQuick 2.0

Rectangle {


file:///home/.../test.qml:1 module "QtQuick" is not installed

I already double-checked that the following relevant packages are installed:

$ dpkg --get-selections | grep libqt5

You need qtdeclarative5-qtquick2-plugin installed. If you just install ubuntu-sdk it will install pretty much everything you need.
