using cmake: "could not find qtglobal header". Issue with qt4?

hi folks,

I'm trying to install a GPS program called QLandKarte. To do so, I've been told to use ccmake. When I do this, I get "CMAKE_BACKWARDS_COMPATIBILITY: For backwards compatibility, what version of CMake commands and syntax should this version of .. (can't read the rest)". It specifies that my current version of cmake is 2.4, patch 5. If I type 'c' (configure) I get "CMake Error: Could NOT find QtGlobal header". (Using 'apt-get install cmake' I apparently have the latest version of cmake)

1. Research implies the problem may be that I've incorrectly installed the qt4 set of packages. Below is the list of qt packages I've got (using dpkg -l | grep "qt"). I've tried installing/updating any qt4 package I can lie my hands on, to no avail.

2. Another theory is that this has to do with bashrc and my $PATH. Any advice on how I should amend my path?

any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Welcome to Linux Questions.

Assume QLandkarteGT.2009.01.01 or similar.

1) You cannot be without a build directory :

2) Missing package for compiling with qt4 :

'libqt4-dev' ( version 4.3.x is required )

P.S.: There is a package 'qlandcarte' for Ubuntu and Debian.
(version 0.7.3 )
