Thread: Qt3 Installation on Ubuntu 7.04

    Default Qt3 Installation on Ubuntu 7.04

    I am trying to install qt3 version 3.3.8 from source code because a program I want to install requires Qt3. After unpacking the files I run configure and everything appears fine. When I run make the following error occurs:

    elease-shared/moc_qmotifstyle.o -L/usr/X11R6/lib -lXext -lX11 -lm -ldl
    /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lXext
    collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
    make[2]: *** [../lib/] Error 1
    make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/qt/src'
    make[1]: *** [sub-src] Error 2
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/qt'
    make: *** [init] Error 2
    I can not figure out what is wrong. I appreciate your help.

    Try installing libxext-dev:
    sudo apt-get install libxext-dev
    I'd suggest you do the same with Qt 3 (install packages libqt3-* and qt3-* instead of compiling it by hand).
