Getting started

Postby socalengr » Thu Mar 06, 2014 4:38 am


I need some help getting started. First, your build instructions say to install Qt 4.8.4 and rebuild it. 4.8.4 was not readily available, but 4.8.5 is, so that is what I have. Secondly, I just downloaded the binaries for Qt since I see no reason to build them. Therefore, I ran into this error:

Project ERROR: Script bindings not available for Qt version 4.8.5. You can add t
hem to src/scripting/qt-labs-qtscriptgenerator-4.8.5 or use another version of Q

I am trying to build on Windows. I don't have any interest in Linux. Ideally, I would like a VS2010 Express project file, but make files will do for now.

What version of the sources are you using? If you download the sources from our web site, script bindings for Qt 4.8.5 are included:

I had the similar problem after moving to Debian Wheezy recently (that is, it comes with Qt 4.8.2, whereas closest script bindings are for 4.8.1 in Git). I just copied the 4.8.1 directory to 4.8.2 (it could have needed a trivial modification or two of some .pro as well) -- it's probably not optimal a move, but I hardly think it causes any problems when only patch levels change.

I don't see why you couldn't at least try that route on Windows as well. At worst it doesn't work :twisted:.
