Pyqt error: qmake is not an executable

  • Hey

    I am trying to install pyqt but getting: error: '/Users/Chris/Qt5.4/5.4/clang_64/bin/qmake' is not an executable@

    I am following the instructions on a site which tells me to:

    @ cd /var/tmp
    cp /Users/gvincent/Downloads/PyQt-gpl-5.2.1.tar.gz .
    cp /Users/gvincent/Downloads/sip-4.15.5.tar.gz .
    tar xvf PyQt-gpl-5.2.1.tar.gz
    tar xvf sip-4.15.5.tar.gz
    cd sip-4.15.5/
    python3 -d ~/.env/ariane_mail/lib/python3.4/site-packages --arch x86_64
    sudo make install
    sudo make clean
    cd ../PyQt-gpl-5.2.1/
    python3 --destdir ~/.env/ariane_mail/lib/python3.4/site-packages --qmake ~/Qt5.2.1/5.2.1/clang_64/bin/qmake
    sudo make install
    sudo make clean
    ~/.env/ariane_mail/bin/python -c "import PyQt5"**@
    The part thats giving me the error is the

    @python3 --destdir ~/.env/ariane_mail/lib/python3.4/site-packages --qmake ~/Qt5.2.1/5.2.1/clang_64/bin/qmake

  • I would check the permissions on qmake. Make sure the executable bit is set. Using Finder, CMD I on the file and verify it says 'Unix Executable File'.

    It is obviously OS X but the location it is in wouldn't be typical for an executable that was installed (nothing says it can't be there mind you).
