[SOLVED] How to create symlink for libs? Debian Wheezy.

  • I installed Qt 5.2 on Debian Wheezy with the Online Installer and I open the Qt Creator, then I created a new project and I build, but he returns this error:
    @:-1: error: cannot find -lGL
    :-1: error: collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status@
    @16:52:53: Running steps for project SeriesGuidePC...
    16:52:53: Configuration unchanged, skipping qmake step.

    collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
    make: *** [SeriesGuidePC] Error 1

    When executing step 'Make'
    16:52:54: Elapsed time: 00:00.@

    Must be why the libs are not linked correctly in the system, because when I install Qt 4.8 using apt-get it usually works.

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    You are just missing the OpenGL development libraries

    Just call
    @sudo apt-get install mesa-common-dev@

    and you should be good to go

    Happy Coding !

  • Hi, I installed the mesa-common-dev and still returning the same error. :(

  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    Then also install

    @sudo apt-get install libgl1-mesa-dev@

  • It worked! Thank you! :D

    You're welcome !
