Error cannot find -lGL (Ubuntu with Parallels)



  • I get error message :-1: error: cannot find -lGL when try to build a qt project. This happend before in my previous Ubuntu setup and solved it with make a symbolic link to a file but I don't remember it. Something about opengl I think. Now it happen again in my new Ubuntu.

    I'm running Ubuntu in Parallels 9 for Mac. Qt 5.1.1



  • I solved it. I created symbolic link /usr/lib/libGL.so with parallels so file. :)
