    I performed the following instruction for installation:

    But I could not install,So I googled Installing Qwt and found sourceforge website for installation. But I could not configure or understand how to install it.Can any one provide me with a step by step install of the QWT

  • Open up the .pro that comes with the library package and compile using QtCreator. Once the compile finishes, it should output libraries into the libs directory.

    add the following to your .pro in your project:

    source include directory

    INCLUDEPATH += pathtoqwt/src

    destination directories

    CONFIG(debug, debug|release) {
    LIBS += -Lpathtoqwt/lib -lqwtd
    CONFIG(release, debug|release) {
    LIBS += -Lpathtoqwt/lib -lqwt

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    There's no configure for Qwt, just use the qmake from your Qt installation then call make and make install.

    It's all explained "here":http://qwt.sourceforge.net/qwtinstall.html
