KDevelop cannot find QT headers and libraries?!


I'm a Linux noob but a Win vet. I love the KDevelop & QT IDE's! I'm having a problem with my #INCLUDE's - KDev won't go to my $QTDIR and find the headers and libraries!

Code frag:

#INCLUDE <iostream>
#INCLUDE "qstring.h"
int maint()
// generic console program, nothing fancy

My build process bombs out w/ this message:
main.cpp:28:21: qstring.h: No such file or directory

However, if I do this:
#INCLUDE "/usr/lib/qt-3.3/include/qstring.h"

Then all is well. I know for a fact that this is an issue with the automake/autoconf stuff. However, after spending about 12 hours poring over thousands of lines of scripts and makefiles I've decided to beg for help.

The above program is just a simple "Simple Hello World" project.
(Just went away and tried something else...)


I just created a "QMake Project" Hello World and it worked fine! Well, I guess I answered my own question! I'm not ready to tackle automake and autoconf (yet) but I can definitely get stuff done with the tools available.

Okay, if there's an automake/autoconf/make/gmake guru out there who can help me understand this I would be grateful. Besides, a makefile thread ought to be interesting. Anybody else have a makefile horror story?

when you run gcc (or g++) try adding the switch:
so you get:
g++ myfile.c -o myfile -I/usr/lib/qt-3.3/include
or better still, try using pkg-config to get the lines you need for the include and lib folders:
g++ myfile.c -o myfile `pkg-config --libs --cflags qt-mt`
those are backticks around the pkg-config line, not apostrophes
