Examples won't compile...

  • Hi Folks,

    I've downloaded qt-linux-opensource-5.0.1-x86_64-offline and installed on my Ubuntu 12.04LTS system. I can run Qt Creator, but the examples won't compile. For example the Address Book example has this error:

    @20:37:46: Running steps for project addressbook...
    20:37:46: Configuration unchanged, skipping qmake step.
    20:37:46: Starting: "/usr/bin/make" -w

    I do have libglu1-mesa installed already:

    @mccall@phenom:~/Programming/Qt5.0.1$ sudo apt-get install libglu1-mesa
    [sudo] password for mccall:
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    libglu1-mesa is already the newest version.@

    I guess I'm just missing a package, but I can't seem to work out which one! I found this "thread":http://qt-project.org/forums/viewthread/25501 that had the same problem, but the solution wasn't given...

    Please can someone help?

  • Doh! I didn't have the dev package!

    mccall@phenom:~/Programming/Qt5.0.1$ sudo apt-get install libglu1-mesa-dev

    All works as it should - thanks for looking anyway!
