QT for AWS linux 2 : qtwebengine and qtwebenginewidget is not available.



  • How to get the open-source compiled qt for AWS linux?

    I am trying to run my application on AWS linux 2 and getting dependencies issues given below:

    libQt5WebEngineWidgets.so.5 => not found
    libQt5WebEngineCore.so.5 => not found

    AWS linux 2 is RHEL 7 based and I also enabled epel-release version 7 for the same.

    But still no support for that.. Is there any package which resolved my problem?

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    Your question is not clear. Are you trying to build Qt for it or to use packages from that distribution ?



  • Hi @SGaist ,

    I have already a QT based application, which is running fine on Ubuntu, CentOS 8 and RHEL. I am trying to run my application on the AWS linux 2 but it is asking for the library dependencies i.e qtWebengine and qtWebengineWidget.

    These both Libraries/Packages are a part of the epel-release in case of ubuntu 16_18_20 , Centos8, RHEL8, but not in the case of AWS linux 2. Moreover AWS linux 2 in based on CentOS version 7.

    If I will get both the packages/Libraries for AWS linux, then my application would work fine.\

    As per the website "https://pkgs.org" it says that we need to use viber.rpm which is third party application to resolve the dependencies.

    Right now, I am looking for the packages "qt5-qtwebengine" and "qt5-qtwebenginewidget" so that I can continue with my testing. But the concern is how to get these packages in AWS linux 2



  • Hi @SGaist ,

    Any pointer on this?

    Can you explain why you want to have webengine on a system that is designed to run web backend related workload ?
