I'm trying to port a simple project from Qt4 to Qt5. The project uses QWebKit. I installed the qt5-default and libqt5webkit5-dev packages. I then changed the qmake project file to contain this:

QT += webkitwidgets

But then when I try to run qmake, I get this output:

Project ERROR: Unknown module(s) in QT: quick location sensors

I checked, and the libqt5quick5, libqt5location5 and libqt5sensors5 packages are all installed (they seems to be dependencies of libqt5webkit).

What am I missing?

I'm on Ubuntu 13.04, 64bit.

I had to install bunch of additional packages:

sudo apt-get install qtquick1-5-dev qtlocation5-dev qtsensors5-dev qtdeclarative5-dev

Not sure why they were not installed automatically. Perhaps the dependencies are not set right?
