After a lot of problems trying to comile programs that need qt (kde)
I'm thinking of trying to install the qt-x11-free from the trolltech site,but as this is a source file (..tar.gz) , do I need to remove the qt2 and qt3 related
.deb packages from my knoppix hd install first , or can they go together with
qt-x11-free from trolltech??

I removed all qt related packages that weren't needed to run other programs ,then I installed qt-x11-free...rar.gz according to the install instructions and it
compiled and installled whithout any error messages.
Now i again tried to compile a ..tar.gz file that needs qt(kam2), and still I get same error message as before: looking for Qt ......not found.
Can anybody tell me how set PATH for QT in a debian system?(let the system know where ./configure has to look for qt)

./configure --with-qt-dir=/usr/share/qt

./configure --with-qt-dir=/usr/local/qt ,doesn't work

on my Knoppix 3.3 (2003-11-19) qt exists in the directory /usr/share/qt3.

next idea:

export QTDIR=/usr/share/qt3

By the way: with the Knoppix above I can compile my qt applications under kDevelop without any additional packages.

Good luck.
