Under Ubuntu 17.04 I develop a Python 3 application using PyQt5 (which uses Qt5 5.8.0) and mysql (5.7.18). All has been well recently until today, I now get upon launching:
QSqlDatabase: QMYSQL driver not loaded QSqlDatabase: available drivers: QSQLITE QMYSQL QMYSQL3 QPSQL QPSQL7
This is what happens if you have not previously done a:
apt-get install libqt5sql5-mysql
but I have done that, and tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it with same result.
locate libqsqlmysql shows me:
The first of these is dated Feb 9 2017, I believe it is Qt5 and not PyQt5, it
ldds without error, and I do not think is relevant.
The second however is dated Jun 21 2017, so looks like the culprit. If I go:
ldd /usr/local/lib/python3.5/dist-packages/PyQt5/Qt/plugins/sqldrivers/libqsqlmysql.so, in the output I note:
libmysqlclient.so.18 => not found libssl.so.10 => not found libcrypto.so.10 => not found
Am I right that is the problem? So it's a PyQt5 issue, not a Qt5 one? Can anyone suggest how to remedy? (I do not have an old state to revert to.)
