View Full Version : Problems with Kdevelop headers

August 7th, 2005, 06:28 PM
Presently I'm just trying to create a Simple KDE Application (from new project C++ -> KDE -> Simple KDE Application). I want to test it to make sure that everything is in tip top shape; Run automake & friends works fine but when I try to Run configure I get an error message.

checking for KDE...
configure: error:
in the prefix, you've chosen, are no KDE headers installed. This will fail.
So, check this please and use another prefix!
*** Exited with status: 1 ***

I've checked out this thread
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=3505&highlight=kdevelop+headers and when I perform
apt-cache search qt-mt and I try and apt-get install the files, I seem to install one and have to remove the other. Can anyone lend me some advice?

Although this is an old post, I just had the same problem. I found a solution in another thread (copied below). Hope this helps.

Which repository do you use for KDE 3.5? The Kubuntu packages for KDE 3.5? Looking at this repo shows that it contains all those *-dev files which you need.

Oops: Saw your last message too late.
If you don't know what packages to install, the headers are all distributed in those -dev files, for example libkde4-dev contains all headers for the kdelibs. kdebase-dev contains the headers of kdebase and so on. A nice way to install -dev packages is via command line with something like

$ apt-get build-dep kdepim

That command would install all packages which you need to build kdepim from source. Of course this only works for packages which are already in the repository.
