35 <application>Qt5</application> is a cross-platform application framework
36 that is widely used for developing application software with a graphical
37 user interface (GUI) (in which cases <application>Qt5</application> is
38 classified as a widget toolkit), and also used for developing non-GUI
39 programs such as command-line tools and consoles for servers. One of the
40 major users of <application>Qt</application> is <application>KDE
41 Frameworks 5 (KF5)</application>.

153 <bridgehead renderas="sect3">Installing in /opt/qt5</bridgehead>
154
155 <para>
156 The BLFS editors recommend installing <application>Qt5</application> in a
157 directory other than <filename class="directory">/usr</filename>, ie
158 <filename class="directory">/opt/qt5</filename>. To do this, set the
159 following environment variable:
160 </para>
161
162<screen><userinput>export QT5PREFIX=/opt/qt5</userinput></screen>
163
164 <tip>
165 <para>
166 Sometimes, the installation paths are hardcoded into installed files.
167 This is the reason why <filename class="directory">/opt/qt5</filename>
168 is used as installation prefix instead of <filename
169 class="directory">/opt/qt-&qt5-version;</filename>. To create a
170 versioned <application>Qt5</application> directory after the
171 installation is complete, you may rename the directory and create a symlink:
172 </para>
173
174<screen role="root"><userinput>mkdir /opt/qt-&qt5-version;
175ln -sfnv qt-&qt5-version; /opt/qt5</userinput></screen>
176
177 <para>
178 Later on, you may want to install other versions of
179 <application>Qt5</application>. To do that, just remove the symlink
180 and use <filename class="directory">/opt/qt5</filename> as the
181 prefix again. Which version of <application>Qt5</application> you
182 use depends only on where the symlink points.
183 </para>
184 </tip>
185
186 <note>
187 <para>
188 If <xref linkend="qca"/> has been installed and you are
189 reinstalling or updating this package, then
190 <application>qca</application> will need to be reinstalled.

199 <warning>
200 <para>
201 If <application>Qt5</application> is being reinstalled into the
202 same directory as an existing instance, run the commands done by
203 <systemitem class="username">root</systemitem>, such as
204 <command>make install</command>, from a console or non-Qt5 based
205 window manager. It overwrites <application>Qt5</application>
206 libraries that should not be in use during the install process.
207 </para>
208 </warning>
209
210 <caution>
211 <para>
212 If you did not install some of the recommended dependencies, examine
213 <command>./configure --help</command> output to check how to disable
214 them or use internal versions bundled in the source tarball.
215 </para>
216 </caution>
217
218 <note>
219 <para>
220 The build time and space required for the full
221 <application>Qt5</application> is quite long. The instructions below
222 do not build the tutorials and examples. Removing the
223 <parameter>-nomake</parameter> line will create a complete build.

226
227 <note>
228 <para>
229 The BLFS editors do not recommend installing <application>Qt5</application>
230 into the /usr hierarchy because it becomes difficult to find
231 components and to update to a new version. If you do want to install
232 <application>Qt5</application> in /usr, the directories need to
233 be specified explicitly. In this case, set QT5PREFIX=/usr and add
234 the following to the configure arguments below:
