I am working on a project that I used to use in a Windows environment. I recently migrated to KUbuntu and installed everything I needed (Qt, QtCreator and libcurl).

However, after installing libcurl, I see that libcurl doesn't come with header files that I need! I checked that this was not the case using

$ dpkg-query -L libcurl3
/.
/usr
/usr/share
/usr/share/doc
/usr/share/doc/libcurl3
/usr/share/doc/libcurl3/changelog.Debian.gz
/usr/share/doc/libcurl3/copyright
/usr/share/doc/libcurl3/NEWS.Debian.gz
/usr/share/lintian
/usr/share/lintian/overrides
/usr/share/lintian/overrides/libcurl3
/usr/lib
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libcurl.so.4.3.0
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libcurl.so.4
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libcurl.so.3

So, will I need to install libcurl sources in order to get back to work?

Header files are usually provided by -dev packages, in this case that would be libcurl3-dev, which is a virtual package now provided by libcurl4-ssl-dev, which looks like it has header files. So install libcurl3-dev.
