Where to find qt-sdk



  • I am running Lubuntu 19.04 on a mini-pc. I am developing an application on my desktop and want to deploy it on a mini-pc (both use the same architecture and binary compatible).

    I want to avoid installing the whole qt (5.13) on the mini-pc. I remember in good old days it was enough to install 'qt-sdk' package...but I can not find that anymore...

    Any ideas how to manage this?

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    The old SDK would install a whole Qt.

    Since you have a full Linux installation on your mini-pc, why not just install the Qt package of your distribution for the modules your application uses ?

    sudo apt install qt5-qmake
    

    or on some systems:

    sudo apt install qt5-default
    

    That will install the Qt libraries (not Qt Creator).

    But if you really only want to deploy a working executable to your other machine, you should use proper deployment tool: create a DEB package or create an AppImage (or a Snap, or Flatpak), or compile statically. Some more info in the docs: https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/linux-deployment.html
