fatal error: ui_about.h: No such file or directory


I am trying to compile the following github package

https://github.com/openalpr/plate_tagger

Which makes use of **qt**. The output of cmake is as follows,

-- The C compiler identification is GNU 4.8.4
-- The CXX compiler identification is GNU 4.8.4
-- Check for working C compiler: /usr/bin/cc
-- Check for working C compiler: /usr/bin/cc -- works
-- Detecting C compiler ABI info
-- Detecting C compiler ABI info - done
-- Check for working CXX compiler: /usr/bin/c++
-- Check for working CXX compiler: /usr/bin/c++ -- works
-- Detecting CXX compiler ABI info
-- Detecting CXX compiler ABI info - done
-- Configuring done
-- Generating done
-- Build files have been written to: /home/tonystark124/plate_tagger-master/build

When I try make, I am met with the following error :

[ 1%] Built target openalpr_tagger_automoc
Scanning dependencies of target openalpr_tagger
[ 3%] Building CXX object CMakeFiles/openalpr_tagger.dir/about.cpp.o
/home/tonystark124/plate_tagger-master/about.cpp:4:22: fatal error: ui_about.h: No such file or directory
#include "ui_about.h"

I raised an issue in the git, as no one else seems to have met this obstacle. Upon further search, I am inclined to conclude that am missing some installation/part of **qt5**. [Link1](http://lists.subsurface-divelog.org/...er/016390.html) and [Link2](https://stackoverflow.com/questions/...f-qt5-in-cmake) suggest that this is to do with the **qt5** and **cmake** too, but am not able to pinpoint the actual issue.

How do I solve this issue?

**UPDATE**

Have included my CMakeLists.txt

cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 2.8.11)

project(openalpr_tagger)

SET(VERSION_MAJOR 1)
SET(VERSION_MINOR 0)
SET(VERSION_PATCH 0)

SET (VERSION "${VERSION_MAJOR}.${VERSION_MINOR}.${VERSION_PATCH}")
add_definitions(-DVERSION_MAJOR=${VERSION_MAJOR})
add_definitions(-DVERSION_MINOR=${VERSION_MINOR})
add_definitions(-DVERSION_PATCH=${VERSION_PATCH})
add_definitions(-DVERSION_STRING="${VERSION}")


add_definitions(-DTARGET="openalpr_tagger")
add_definitions(-DTARGET_STRING="openalpr_tagger")

That's my post again. I thought this thread wasn't posted, due to my network issues. Could you please let me know if you have a way to solve this?

I'll close this one and leave the other post open. It is fine here or in the other forum.

Meanwhile that one has no replies as yet, so it will show as a zero reply thread, awaiting possible answers.

I do not know the answer to your problem, but my experiences with Qt are that you sometimes need to configure, and reconfigure the toolkit a lot to get it to compile.
