[SOLVED]No targets specified and no makefile found

  • Hello everyone, I need to compile QT in order to have the script patch for wkhtmltopdf.
    Well, I do as it follows here: http://code.google.com/p/wkhtmltopdf/wiki/compilation
    The problem is the step: make -j3 && make install, I can't do make cause can't find a makefile.
    I don't know if that has to do with the step before, configure, but I don't think so.
    Please I really need to have this done as soon as possible and that is getting on my nerves.
    I appreciate so much any help really !

    Hi, and welcome to the Qt Dev Net!

    qmake generates the Makefile. Did you run the "qmake" step?

  • Hi! I can't do the step qmake-qt4 cause I haven't installed the QT yet, so.... unrecognized command.
    I have a folder named qmake under the wkhtmltopdf-qt folder I don't know if that has something to do for generating the makefile, but I don't know how! Thanks for the answer

    So you're trying to build Qt yourself from their sources? Ok, ignore qmake since it doesn't exist yet.

    You need to configure successfully first. That will generate the Makefile.

  • I have to say that I haven't done this step:
    cat ../wkhtmltopdf/static_qt_conf_base ../wkhtmltopdf/static_qt_conf_linux | sed -re 's/#.*//'
    As I don't have the files static_qt_conf_base and static_qt_conf_linux, I can't do that, but I don't know if that step is necesary, I think the purpose is replacing the comments in those files for blanks, but I don't know why.
    So having that I'm skipping that step, how would I have to do the configure┬┐? I do just as follows....

    ./configure -nomake tools,examples,demos,docs,translations -opensource -prefix "../wkqt"

    I have also tried the script ./configure without parameters but still I don't generate the makefile....
    Thank you for your answers

  • Hi! It was a problem with the configure, Installing the package 'libxext-dev' solved the problem ;)
