Angry Cannot find qt libraries

Alright here is my problem. I'm a little new to linux so bear with me. I went to install DC-QT from the ./configure command like the instructions said and I found that I needed QT. I got Trolltech's QT3 and installed it and then when I went to run the ./configure again it still said "qt libs not found". I have no idea where to look for these libraries or even what to look for. If someone can please point me in the right direction I would appreciate it.

Have a look at the INSTALL file for the QT gear you built and installed. It should give you some clue as to where they libs were installed. Genereally it's in /usr/local/lib, and that should be a path in your /etc/ If that's the case you need to run 'ldconfig' to reload the library path bindings.

is the slocate command a slackware-based-only command, or does it work on other distro's as well?

I got this on SuSE 9 what i did was this:

# export QTDIR=/usr/lib64/qt3 (I'm on a x86_64, that's why the lib64. Use your own QT3 path)


# export LIBRARY_PATH=$QTDIR/lib (Again, check your installation)

Then try to run ./configure
