QMAKE not found



  • Dear readers,

    when I open my terminal on my Mac and I want to use qmake commands it tells me:

    -bash: qmake: command not found

    Can someone please tell me how to fix this?
    QT is installed at:

    /Devbizz/QtSDK/

    Devbizz is my computer name by the way :)

    Just add it to path. Like this:
    @
    PATH="/Devbizz/QtSDK/Desktop/<your qt version>/<compiler, usually gcc>/bin:$PATH"
    @

    You can add this line to your .profile (although I think this file is called a bit different on Mac, you'll have to check that).



  • You just need to edit your .bash_profile file (if it exists, else create it) and add:

    export QTDIR=/usr/local/Trolltech/Qt-4.8.0
    export PATH=$QTDIR/bin:$PATH

    Obviously set the path to your actual path to qmake...



  • On Mac OSX Lion that syntax is not correct.
    I had to add this line of code on .bash_profile:

    @PATH=$PATH:/Users/marco/QtSDK/Desktop/Qt/4.8.1/gcc/bin
    @
    Obviously "/Users/marco" is my home folder
