How to build communi?

  • I am having trouble building communi on my machine. Is there a documentaiton on how to build communi? I tried communi-communi-1.0 and also communi-communi-master.

    I am using windows 7 and installed Qt 4.7 SDK for qmake. when I run on command line ->qmake -r -config release in the root directory of communi-communi-master\communi-communi, it reads all the pro files in the sub directory and then I got this error message.

    Project MESSAGE: Warning: unknown QT: widgets

    If I run qmake -r -config release in communi-communi-1.0\communi-communi, there is no error message but it does not build anything, i.e all the release directory are empty after this command returns. Here is the output:

    C:\Qt\communi-communi-1.0\communi-communi>qmake -r -config release
    Project MESSAGE: Building Communi 1.0.0
    Project MESSAGE: ICU support disabled.

    I just need a version of communi to build so I can see how the library works. Any help is appreciated.

    QtWidgets is the newly created module in Qt5 (which is currently in alpha stage). Check the .pro file, if there is a line that has something like:
    QT += core gui widgets

    Then - most probably - the project you try to compile requires Qt5. I don't know what communi is, though.
