Compiling PythonQt with Qt creator

  • I am trying to compile "PythonQt":http://pythonqt.sourceforge.net/ using Qt creator but it return me 163 errors.

    bq. C:\Users\Kato\Desktop\Qt projects\PythonQt-build-desktop-Qt_4_7_4_for_Desktop_-_MinGW_4_4__Qt_SDK__Debug\src....\PythonQt2.0.1\src\PythonQtStdDecorators.h:46: error: Python.h: No such file or directory

    and such other directories.

    I have python 3.2 installed and I have changed prf file to be:
    @# profile to include and link Python

    Change this variable to your python version (2.5, 2.6)


    macx {

    for macx you need to have the Python development kit installed as framework

    INCLUDEPATH += /System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Headers
    LIBS += -F/System/Library/Frameworks -framework Python
    } else:win32 {

    for windows install a Python development kit or build Python yourself from the sources

    Make sure that you set the environment variable PYTHON_PATH to point to your

    python installation (or the python sources/header files when building from source).

    Make sure that you set the environment variable PYTHON_LIB to point to

    the directory where the python libs are located.

    When using the prebuild Python installer, this will be:

    set PYTHON_PATH = c:\Python26

    set PYTHON_LIB = c:\Python26\libs

    PYTHON_PATH= C:\Python32
    PYTHON_LIB= C:\Python32\libs

    When using the python sources, this will be something like:

    set PYTHON_PATH = c:\yourDir\Python-2.6.1\

    set PYTHON_LIB = c:\yourDir\Python-2.6.1\PCbuild8\Win32

    check if debug or release

    CONFIG(debug, debug|release) {
    DEBUG_EXT = _d
    } else {

    win32:LIBS += $(PYTHON_LIB)/python$${PYTHON_VERSION}$${DEBUG_EXT}.lib

    } else:unix {

    on linux, python-config is used to autodetect Python.

    make sure that you have installed a matching python-dev package.

    unix:LIBS += $$system(python$${PYTHON_VERSION}-config --libs)
    unix:QMAKE_CXXFLAGS += $$system(python$${PYTHON_VERSION}-config --includes)
    according to this "build link":http://pythonqt.sourceforge.net/Building.html I am right
    but same errors !!
    I don't know what is the problem
    thank you in advance =)

  • It is neccessary to run qmake (Build -> Run qmake) after every change, i could be environment variables or any qt project files like prf...
