Installation problems



  • Hello, I am a user with no much experience on Linux so please provide an answer for dummies. When following this guide:

    https://wiki.qt.io/Install_Qt_5_on_Ubuntu

    $ sudo apt-get install mesa-common-dev
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    Package mesa-common-dev is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source

    E: Package 'mesa-common-dev' has no installation candidate

    $ sudo apt-get install libglu1-mesa-dev -y
    Reading package lists... Done

    Package libglu1-mesa-dev is not available, but is referred to by another package.

    The guide says:

    Execute the following command to install OpenGL libraries:

    sudo apt-get install mesa-common-dev

    Note: Just installing the above-mentioned mesa-common-dev kit is not sufficient for more recent Ubuntu versions. Based on a comment in the Qt forum[1] an additional package needs installation. Execute following command:

    sudo apt-get install libglu1-mesa-dev -y
