Cannot build Qt 5.11.0 due to missing wayland libraries (On ubuntu 16.04)



  • When running make with the following configuration:

    sudo ./configure -v -static -prefix "/home/james/Qt/5.11.0_Static" -qt-zlib -qt-pcre -qt-libpng -qt-libjpeg -qt-freetype -qt-xcb -make libs -nomake tools -nomake examples -nomake tests -opensource -confirm-license -egl -opengl es2 -skip wayland
    

    I get the following errors during build:

    /usr/bin/ld.gold: error: cannot find -lqwayland-generic
    /usr/bin/ld.gold: error: cannot find -lqwayland-xcomposite-egl

    It looks like even after assigning -skip wayland, I still have dependancies for it. Does anyone know what the issue is here? My understanding is that wayland is only on Ubnutu from 17.04. I don't really want to manually build wayland on my machine, but rather just skip it.

    I'm using Elementary OS (Loki) which is based on Ubuntu 16.04.

    Hi,

    Did you add -skip wayland after the build failed or did you do a completely new build ?



  • @SGaist I ran sudo make clean, then ran configure and make again.

    I would do an out of source build so if there's trouble with the build you can nuke it start from fresh without possible artefact affecting the detection and build process.

    [Edit: Original message in the wrong thread... SGaist]



  • @SGaist Yup, that was it! I redownloaded the source code, ran an out-of-source build, and the error is now gone and make ran all the way through with no issues.

    Thanks for the quick help!
