Where to I get Qt Motif Extension?
The question is simple: where to I get Qt Motif Extension (or however it is called now)? Is it open source or is it available only with commercial editions? Or maybe now there is no longer a need for it? My objective is to create new Qt Dialog within existing Motif application.

The Qt Motif Extension has been discontinued and is no longer available, since the request for it was low.
But relatively recently I have seen "posts":http://permalink.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lib.qt.general/35712 from people using it. It seems unlikely that it worked on 4.7.0 and it doesn't work on 4.7.2...
For anybody who might be interested: ftp://ftp.qt.nokia.com/pub/qt/solutions/lgpl/qtmotifextension-2.7_1-opensource.tar.gz

By the way, the above is now a dead link (same for ftp://ftp.qt-project.org/pub/qt/solutions/lgpl/) and I couldn't find the archive elsewhere on that ftp site.
A few mirrors still seem to have these archives (e.g. http://ftp3.ie.freebsd.org/pub/ftp.trolltech.com/pub/qt/solutions/lgpl ) but it would be nicer to have an "official" hosting for this legacy code.
Thanks for the link to the mirror site. Can anyone comment if the Qt Motif extension will work with Qt 4.2.1? Thanks in advance!

Should not be a problem with Qt 4.2.1 (we're using it with Qt 4.7.x and have used it in the past with 4.4.0 and 4.0). The bigger question is, will there be Qt 5 support? ("QTSOLBUG-163":https://bugreports.qt-project.org/browse/QTSOLBUG-163)
cboos, thanks so much for the info! that's good news for my current project using Qt 4.2.1
Have another question... I've been messing with this for a while but can't seem to get the QtMotifExtension to build into a shared library.
I downloaded the source from here:
Then extracted the files and then went into the directory and ran:
(accepted the license terms)
I get an error stating the following:
common.pri:3: Unknown replace function: qtLibraryTarget
After this error, running "make" will also not successfully complete. The system this is running on has Qt 4.2.1 installed in /usr/lib64/qt4/lib64/
The OS is RHAT 5, 64bit.
