BLFS: Phonon-backend-gstreamer-4.6.2 error

When I try to install Phonon-backend-gstreamer-4.6.2, I get the following error message:

CMake Warning at cmake/FindPhonon.cmake:9 (find_package):
Could not find a package configuration file provided by "Phonon" with any
of the following names:


Add the installation prefix of "Phonon" to CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH or set
"Phonon_DIR" to a directory containing one of the above files. If "Phonon"
provides a separate development package or SDK, be sure it has been
Call Stack (most recent call first):

cmake/FindPhonon.cmake:16 (find_package_handle_standard_args)
CMakeLists.txt:7 (find_package)

-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!

It cannot find my Phonon installation. I already install Phonon-4.6.0 using the following commands:

-DDBUS_INTERFACES_INSTALL_DIR=/usr/share/dbus-1/interfaces \
.. &&

And I try to install Phonon-backend-gstreamer-4.6.2 using the following command:


Please note that my QTDIR is equal to /opt/qt, and my KDE_PREFIX is equal to /usr.

I tried making: export Phonon_DIR=/sources/phonon-4.6.0/build , and running the configuration for Phonon-backend-gstreamer-4.6.2 again, and this time I get the following error:

root [ /sources/phonon-backend-gstreamer-4.6.2/build ]# cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$KDE_PREFIX .. &&

If anyone can help, I would be glad.

I solved it. I just changed my KDE_PREFIX from /usr to /opt/kde
