Installing QT5 on raspberrypi
I want to install Qt5 on my "RaspberryPi", using "armv6l"- (linux, debian).
I used the terminal and install Qt with the following comand: "sudo apt-get install build-essential libgl1-mesa-dev" and it runs.
My first question is, do I now have installed the whole qt library? I can't find it on my disc.
And my second question is, how can I install the qt creator? Is there a apt-get-comand like above??
I allready try it with the installer: " Qt 5.5.1 for Linux 32-bit or 64-bit" and "Qt Creator 3.5.1 for Linux/X11 32-bit or 64-bit", but I just get an error "bash .... cannot execute binary file".
Thanks for your time and answers.

Hi and welcome to devnet,
You have two options to get Qt 5 on the Raspberry Pi:
- Cross-compile it
- Build it natively
The failure you get with the installers is because they are built for x86 and x86_64
Debian has prebuilt Qt5 (5.3.2 in the raspbian version, so it's a bit behind in versions) packages available. I'm not a debian user, but I think the package to install is libqt5.
I have no idea how well QtCreator will run on a RaspberryPi, but you certainly can try. (normally people cross compile on their PCs) The package is qtcreator in debian, so try apt-get with that.
However if you really want to learn things, go with what @SGaist suggest, and cross compile the latest Qt on your PC.
Thank you for your fast reply.
You are right, I see the problem.
