    Default How Do I Download and Install qmake?

    I feel like this should be easier, and indeed I'm probably missing something obvious, but I can't figure out how to install qmake. Because I can't install qmake, I can't install PyQt4. Because I can't install PyQt4, I can't install the Qt Console for ipython. Etc.

    Here's the fully documented steps I've taken from installing ipython to trying to install PyQt4:

    I'm on a Macbook Air mid 2013 running OS X 10.10.2 (14C109), using Chrome browser.

    Thanks so much, I'm feeling like an idiot right now. My brain is totally fried from frustration!

    In order to install/use PyQt, you need a working installation of Qt. Have you downloaded and installed Qt from here?

    If so, you should have a working, already compiled/installed qmake.

    Why are you trying to build anything? Why not install binary release instead?
    Your biological and technological distinctiveness will be added to our own. Resistance is futile.

    Please ask Qt related questions on the forum and not using private messages or visitor messages.
