QtAssistant Documentation Incomplete



  • Hi.

    I set up a new Ubuntu with Qt5 and PyQt5.

    I'm struggling with the QtAssistant, especially with the shown documentation.

    It seems like my QtAssistant is only showing a very light version of the Qt5-documentation.

    Before reinstalling my System, QtAssistant showed quite the same infos like the online Qt5-Reference, eg I could look up any classes, constants, layouts, methods, including examples written in c++.

    Now, the QtAssistant actually shows nothing useful for me, just some kinds QuickStart-Instruction und some docs with qml-examples...

    The qt5-doc is installed, all my Python-qt-projects are running without errors, it's just the documentation which I'm missing.

    Do I have to build the ClassReference by my own?

    I appreciate any help or hints very much!!!

    Cheers, max

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    What version of Ubuntu ?
    What version of Qt ?
    What version of PyQt5 ?

    How exactly did you install Qt and PyQt5 ?



  • Hi. Thanks for answering.

    Ubuntu 18.10
    Qt 5.11.1
    PyQt 5.11.2
    Python 3.6.7

    I installed it via apt in the terminal.
    I installed several packages:
    python3-pyqt5, pyqt5-dev-tools, qt5-default, qt5-doc, qt5-doc-html, qttools5-dev, qttools5-doc, maybe some more...



  • Solved my Problem by copying help files from another Computer.
    Unfortunately not an elegant workaround ...
