Not configuring


I've tried configuring a few things, and I've gotten the same error message each time.

checking for Qt... configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 3.0) (headers and libraries) not found. Please check your installation!


Any ideas why? I'm pretty new to linux and I'm just now starting to get into the nitty gritty, we at least to me it's nitty gritty, hehe.

Thanks

Also, I'm running a Debian distro that was installed using Knoppix's knx-hdinstall tool. This distro is supposed to have a version of qt that is higher than 3.0 if that's what it's trying to tell me.

Try getting the debs instead.

OR

./configure --with-qt-dir=/usr/lib/qt3

the option might be prefix check the docs of what your compiling.

also make sure /usr/lib/qt3 exists.

I checked and I do have the /usr/lib/qt3 folder. Where's a good place to get the Deb packages? The things I was trying to install were KDE themes. So they were relatively small and I don't think they made deb packages for it...

Can I create a deb package from source?

If their individual themes, then their probably aren't any debs.

So do either of the second options.

or e-mail me with the links too the stuff and I'l l try and compile them.

And check you have the qt3 Development stuff.
