Newbie: Compiling Error - QT Library [New Theme with KDE 3 - SuSE 7.3]

Hello all,

I am trying to install a new theme that I recently downloaded from the web which uses KDE 3, although after

"make -f Makefile.cvs"

(which works fine)

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

I get the error msg

"Qt (>= Qt 3.0.2) (library qt-mt) not found."
"Make sure that you have compiled Qt with thread support!"

From what I have gathered so far

- thread support is installed by default
- checked in "/usr/lib/qt3/lib" which reveal's the
following content :

Aug 17 17:59 ->*
Aug 17 17:59 ->*
Jul 12 19:27*

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!!!



PS. I have updraged my distrubtion to KDE 3, without any problems.

Check if you have /usr/lib/qt3/lib in your /etc/ .If not, add it and run ldconfig.

If Thread support isnt installed (which it should be or KDE wouldnt work) try reinstalling Qt

tar zxvf qt.tar.gz
cd qt dir


make -thread

also remember to add the QTDIR PATH to .profile in your home directory
