Ubuntu QT5 "cannot find -lGL"

  • Help!

    I have been using qt5 for a while on WIN7 and now wish to use it on my Ubuntu partition.
    I downloaded the LINUX 64 QT5 and initially got the error something like' no compiler in kit'
    I then installed gcc but now get the following compiler output;

    09:56:25: Starting: "/usr/bin/make"
    g++ -Wl,-rpath,/home/bill/Qt5.2.0/5.2.0/gcc_64 -Wl,-rpath,/home/bill/Qt5.2.0/5.2.0/gcc_64/lib -o test001 main.o mainwindow.o moc_mainwindow.o -L/home/bill/Qt5.2.0/5.2.0/gcc_64/lib -lQt5Widgets -lQt5Gui -lQt5Core -lGL -lpthread
    /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lGL

    WIth the errors listed as;

    Cannot find -lGL
    collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

    Many for reading & even more if you can help!
