Getting Started - downloading Designer

  • I am a beginner. I am using Windows 10, and in the cmw window, I downloaded PYQT5 using "pip3 install PyQt5" -- it was successful. Do I need to download QT\PyQt5 DESIGNER separately? If not (ie, it is contained in my original download), how do I load/run it (like how do I get an icon/exe/ on my taskbar)? If I need to download DESIGNER separately, How/where do I do that? As I said, I am a beginner to all of this stuff, so please tell me exactly what to do.

    About a month ago, I downloaded PyQT4 from the Riverbank website (I think), which came with Designer (I think) and it downloaded like a typical file -- it showed up in windows start menu and I could pin an icon to taskbar. I uninstalled PyQt4 (long story), and now I want the same thing (icon, etc) for PyQt5 Designer. Thank you.

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    I'd recommend brining this to the PyQt forum. They'll be best to answer packaging related questions.

    Just in case, I saw the pyqt5-tools package that might be interest.

    Hope it helps
