No Qt on a new Debian system (resolved!)



  • Hi, when I try to install Qt 5.2 on my new Debian Wheezy 7.3 64 bits system, no "Qt Setup" dialog box appears. Instead I see an error message "Cannot execute binary file", and a zero bytes file appears with a strange filename "?IB@?? (invalid encoding").

    I tried both the online and the offline 64 bits Linux installer, same problem. Also tried "sudo apt-get install build-essential", no dice.

    Note: on my old Debian 64 bits Wheezy (that had Qt 5.1 before) I can install Qt 5.2 just fine. It's just for this new Debian system (installed earlier today) I get this error.

    *** Update ***
    I must be getting old! Just did a 'uname -a' on the Debian system, and it said:
    "Linux debian7 3.2.0-4-686-pae #1 SMP Debian 3.2.51-1 i686 GNU/Linux"

    I.e. I accidentally built a 32 bits system, no wonder those 64 bits installs failed. Sorry my bad, Mondays...
