Symptom

You want to install QtCreator on debian or kubuntu

Cause

none

Solution

This is a wonderfull development environment for windows, Linux and more

Go to the trolltech (now Nokia) website and make a download of the development kit.

In my case it was the file "qt-sdk-linux-x86_64-opensource-2009.03.1.bin". Save it in your homedirectory as a normal user. After the download you need to make it executable with

chmod +x qt-sdk-linux-x86_64-opensource-2009.03.1.bin

Now you can run the binary.

./qt-sdk-linux-x86_64-opensource-2009.03.1.bin

I installed it in my homedirectory under qtsdk-2009.03 which is the default.

When you start qtcreator (located in the bin directory of the qtsdk installation) you can start your first program.

I needed to install some extra libraries to get the first program working. Because of the cannot find -lSM -gObject -libext error messages. After installing the following libraries I could compile the first programs.

apt-get install libxft-dev libfreetype6-dev
apt-get install libgee-dev
apt-get install libslang2-dev
apt-get install libsm-dev
apt-get install libextractor-dev

Have fun with Qt development.
