  • You should check this web. Following the instructions would give you a nice installation.

    http://pyqt.sourceforge.net/Docs/PyQt5/installation.html



  • Tested in ubuntu 15.04

    Download and Install Qtcreator:
    Qt Online Installer for Linux 64-bit
    Install python dev:
    sudo apt-get install python-dev
    Download and Install SIP:
    sip-4.16.7.tar.gz Linux, UNIX, MacOS/X source
    Set QT5 by default:
    sudo apt-get install qt5-default.
    Download and install PyQT:
    PyQt-gpl-5.4.1.tar.gz Linux, UNIX, MacOS/X source



  • Hello,

    I followed the steps above but I still get the following error when trying to run a pyQT program:

    ***Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "HelloWorld.py", line 10, in <module>
    from PyQt5 import QtWidgets
    ImportError: No module named PyQt5


    (program exited with code: 1)
    Press return to continue***

    RESOLVED:

    It was because I was trying to run the script directly from Geany! - if I run it from the terminal using: python3 HelloWorld.py it works fine.
