Yup. You have Qt installed, but not properly. Go to a terminal window
and type 

echo $QTDIR

it should point to the base of the directory containing Qt. If it's
blank, it's not set correctly. Simple as that.

To fix it either edit .bashrc for just you or /etc/bashrc for global.
Add the following lines



save and quit the editor. You should find you can do echo $QTDIR now and
get something meaningful out.

(note this assumes that you've followed the instructions from the source
and installed the qt source directory in /usr/local).

Give that a shot and see what you get back out.


Tired of bloated software which gobbles up your system resources?
Bored of hearing your harddrive being thrashed by inefficient code?
Feel like tearing your hair out when you see a blue screen of death?
Then why not come over from the darkside, and become one of the ever
increasing number of people using Linux - it's free, it's open,
it's easier to use than Windows and more reliable as well.
