    Question Re: how to compile qbittorrent from scratch!

    Thanks for all the replies, especially you TeoBigusGeekus.

    So the "D"esktop worked, but now it is saying that i need some libraries as someone mentioned above, but from where do i get these!?

    Again, thanks for the help, and here is the error I am getting:

    tatah@Satellite-A505:~$ cd ~/Desktop/fast
    tatah@Satellite-A505:~/Desktop/fast$ ./configure
    Configuring qbittorrent ...
    Verifying Qt 4 build environment ... fail

    Reason: Unable to find the 'qmake' tool for Qt 4.

    Be sure you have a proper Qt 4.0 build environment set up. This means not
    just Qt, but also a C++ compiler, a make tool, and any other packages
    necessary for compiling C++ programs.

    If you are certain everything is installed, then it could be that Qt 4 is not
    being recognized or that a different version of Qt is being detected by
    mistake (for example, this could happen if $QTDIR is pointing to a Qt 3
    installation). At least one of the following conditions must be satisfied:

    1) --qtdir is set to the location of Qt
    2) $QTDIR is set to the location of Qt
    3) QtCore is in the pkg-config database
    4) qmake is in the $PATH

    This script will use the first one it finds to be true, checked in the above
    order. #3 and #4 are the recommended options. #1 and #2 are mainly for
    overriding the system configuration.

    Re: how to compile qbittorrent from scratch!

    Basically you will need to install things you might need.

    Installing qt4-qmake should get that

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install qt4-qmake
    if you've not installed build essential yet, then I would do that too

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install qt4-qmake build-essential
    You can search the cache for things as you need

    For instance

    Code:
    apt-cache search qmake
    returns

    Code:
    qt3-designer - graphical designer for Qt3 applications
    qt3-dev-tools - Qt3 development tools
    qconf - A nice configure script for your qmake-based project
    qt3-assistant - The Qt3 assistant application
    qt4-qmake - Qt 4 qmake Makefile generator tool

    thanks for the reply, i am installed qt4 right now, and will install build essential afterwards, but may I ask, from where do you people know all of this code, is there some sort of e-book or a forum dedicated for that, or you just ask and get, or just get them from official website!?

    Re: how to compile qbittorrent from scratch!

    I learnt all I know - which is not all that much - here or on other forums.

    Google is useful too - though I do find it better to use something like googlubuntu if I'm specifically searching for ubuntu.

    Re: how to compile qbittorrent from scratch!

    You might need qt4-dev-tools.

    To be honest I rarely need to install like this and forget between times.

    Edit - a quick look at the qtbittorent page and it's wiki gets this - http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawik...ebian_/_Ubuntu

    Try looking about for the information you need at the same time as asking for help - it'll work wonders

    Not at all - sometimes there something that helps if it gets read - other times there isn't.

    What I am saying is that if you look and there is something to read - read it
