Building QtWebKit and installing into a prefix

  • Please help me installing it into PREFIX=/app

    I've tried

    make install

    which results in

    make -f Makefile.run_cmake install_impl VERBOSE=1 DESTDIR=
    make[2]: Entering directory '/run/build/qtwebkit/Tools/qmake/projects'
    cd /run/build/qtwebkit/debug && cmake -P cmake_install.cmake
    -- Install configuration: "Debug"
    CMake Error at Source/cmake_install.cmake:36 (file):
      file cannot create directory: /usr/lib/cmake/Qt5WebKit.  Maybe need
      administrative privileges.
    Call Stack (most recent call first):
      cmake_install.cmake:37 (include)

    Would defining an environment variable DESTDIR work?

    This is on Linux, using this [0] Flatpak runtime.


  • Both qmake and cmake rely on arguments, not environment variables
