Hi Ian,

You have to find qmake on your system, on LinuxMint I can do this;

owen at CQ43 ~ $ /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/bin/qmake -v
QMake version 3.0
Using Qt version 5.5.1 in /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu

So it is qmake -v but make sure you go looking in the qt5 section, you will probably have qt3 and qt4 directories as well
