You can run:
Code:
sh qt-sdk-linux-x86_64-opensource-2009.01.bin
and follow the instructions

Hello bathory,

I'm having a similar problem with another Qt SDK and with the new Qt Creator. I followed your earlier advice to wagmare and ran 'sh' against the SDK's .bin, to no avail:

$ sh qt-sdk-linux-x86-opensource-2009.01.bin
qt-sdk-linux-x86-opensource-2009.01.bin: 1: Syntax error: "(" unexpected
$

Same result with Qt Creator:

$ sh qt-creator-linux-x86-opensource-1.0.0.bin
qt-creator-linux-x86-opensource-1.0.0.bin: 1: Syntax error: "(" unexpected
$

I'm running Kubuntu 8.10 on an x86 box. Default shell is bash.

Please advise.

You can try to make the binary you have downloaded executable and then run it directly. AFAIK creator must be run from an xterm as it's a graphical installation frontend. So run:
Code:
chmod +x qt-sdk-linux-x86-opensource-2009.01.bin
chmod +x qt-creator-linux-x86-opensource-1.0.0.bin
to make the files executable and after that you can run:
Code:
./qt-sdk-linux-x86-opensource-2009.01.bin
./qt-creator-linux-x86-opensource-1.0.0.bin
to start installation.

Hi bathory,

It worked. Thanks for your help! Amazing how something so small can be such a show-stopper (ie, "the Kindom was lost for want of a nail")

I sent a note to Qt Software suggesting they include this simple-but-critical info on their >>download<< page. There's no lack of Marketing verbiage on their website extolling the virtues of Qt's products, but no one seems to have given any thought to the fact that, in order to be useful, these products must first be >>installed.<< Perhaps their Marketing folk (bless their hearts) haven't actually taken it this far. ;-)
