QtWebKit module missing in Linux custom build Snapshot 4.8.6



  • Hello!

    I was trying to build new Qt 4.8.6 from the snapshot 2014-01-27-461
    Using the following configuration line:
    @./configure -webkit -nomake demos -nomake examples@

    I got the results:
    @

    QtXmlPatterns module ... yes
    Phonon module .......... no
    Multimedia module ...... auto
    SVG module ............. yes
    WebKit module .......... no
    @

    I need QtWebKit in my Qt Application.
    What have I done wrong? I can't understand and I was not able to find anything on this issue :(

    BTW My machine:
    Linux 2.6.38-8-generic #42-Ubuntu SMP Mon Apr 11 03:31:24 UTC 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
    I have Linux Mint OS (Release 11 - katya)

    Thank You for any help!

    I suspect you may be missing some dependencies. Run this on your terminal:
    @
    sudo apt-get build-dep qt4-qmake libqt4-webkit
    sudo apt-get install python ruby perl
    @

    And pay close attention to the whole output of configure: maybe it gives a rationale as to why it is skipping webkit.



  • Thanks for reply.
    I didn't have ruby, so I installed it. But I get this message:

    @$ sudo apt-get build-dep qt4-qmake libqt4-webkit
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    Picking 'qt4-x11' as source package instead of 'qt4-qmake'
    E: Unable to find a source package for qt4-x11

    Hm, I don't think the Mint guys have changed Qt package names from Ubuntu... check out with your package manager application, maybe Qt package has a different name on your distribution, then plug that name into build-dep (that command simply installs all build dependencies of a project).

    But first, try just libqt4-webkit, maybe that is enough.



  • It's the same result :( I give up, I will wait for next LTS of Linux, and reinstall the machine. I though it would be easier to fix this issue.

    Thank for your help, I appreciate it.
