Frustrating problem with QMake in Scratchbox under Ubuntu 9.04 (emulated in VMWare)

Hey everyone! I'm having difficulties with running QMake command in Scratchbox (scratchbox is a part of Maemo 5's SDK).
I tried numerous "ln" commands and even though the path where QT is installed and QMake resides is - apparently - registered correctly in PATH, when I try running QMake I get "bash: qmake: command not found".
I even tried - in a desperate act - to copy the QMake file to my workspace in Scratchbox and try running it again, but I still get the "command not found" error...

What am I doing wrong?! I installed QT well (as far as I know) - so why isn't everything working like a charm like in Nokia's tutorial video?

Thanks in advance everyone!

P.S - I tried searching the forum (and the net) for a solution, but found none that actually helped...

ln -s /complete/path/to/qmake /usr/bin/qmake
will work if qmake have the executable permission (probably your problem). Chmod +x it if it don't
