issues with qt when installing kile


hi everyone,
linux n00bie here and really need your help.

i have redhat 8 running, and am trying to install kile (http://soliton.science.uva.nl/~wijnhout/Kite/). I can't find any rh8 rpm's that work so i thought i would give the src a go.

so, the INSTALL file tells me to type:
./configure --prefix=path to KDE3 (/usr or /opt/kde3 generally) --with-qt-dir=path to the QT3 library (/usr/lib/qt3 generally)

which i think translates to:
./configure --prefix=/usr --with-qt-dir=/usr/lib/qt3

I get the following error message:
configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 3.0.3) (headers and libraries) not found.

so i navigated to /usr/lib/ and i find that i have qt-3.0.5.
so what is the go with that?? how can i fix this issue?

PS. i have had this same problem with other programs (which i still cannot get to work) except that needed qt-2.2.1

thanks

But is the library in /usr/lib/qt3? Perhaps it is /usr/lib/qt .
What is the output of 'ls /usr/lib/q*'

Try 'echo $QTDIR' and use the result (with '/lib' tacked on) as the argument to --with-qt-dir=

ok the output of 'ls /usr/lib/q*' is:

/usr/lib/qt2:
lib

/usr/lib/qt-2.3.1:
lib

/usr/lib/qt3:
bin etc lib plugins

/usr/lib/qt-3.0.5:
bin etc lib plugins

/usr/lib/qt3-gcc3.2:
bin etc lib plugins

i have tried tacking the /lib part on but its still fails!!
so infuriating. it also tells me to looking in config.log for further details, which contains this at the bottom (sorry, large dump - i have placed ********* in front of the lines i think might be causing the issue):

what do you make of this???
can i simply set a variable called QT_VERSION to something like 305 to match my version number??
how do i do this??

You have 5 different versions of qt installed? Or are some symlinks? It seems to be confusing the ./configure script, because it's finding multiple copies of the same file. I would remove all the older versions of qt. It also appears that you don't have the headers (there is no /include subdirectory in qt-3.05)

try /usr/lib/qt-3.0.5/lib if you haven't already
try QTDIR=/usr/lib/qt-3.0.5/ ; export $QTDIR
try QT_VERSION=305; export $QT_VERSION

May do nothing, who knows? Other than that, I don't know what to tell you.

/usr/lib/qt-3.0.5/lib --- tried that already, but thanks

ok so i assume that i am typing that QTDIR and export stuff in the shell. i also noticed (after i typed 'export' on its own) that you need a " " around the number, for it to be recognised.

anyways, thanks for you help but that still did not work.
perhaps if you can't provide further help on this problem, what about this:

do you know of any other LaTeX editors for linux that can output PDF from LaTeX?? (or editors that recognise the syntax and provide highlight and coloring)

thanks

it sure looks like you just have a binary install of qt,
you don't have the include dir

ls -l /usr/lib/qt-

i don't like the way compiling of compiling qt. you have
to have environment variables and crap. then when you
want to install it, it's a little hard to know what all files
you need to put in your qtdir, or if you installed it in place,
what stuff you can delete. it's not that hard, i just don't like
it. if i did it more than once a couple of years, i would have
a script for it. oh well, just nagging.
