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

151
152 <para>
153 The BLFS editors recommend installing <application>Qt5</application> in a
154 directory other than <filename class="directory">/usr</filename>, ie
155 <filename class="directory">/opt/qt5</filename>. To do this, set the
156 following environment variable:
157 </para>
158
159<screen><userinput>export QT5PREFIX=/opt/qt5</userinput></screen>
160
161 <tip>
162 <para>
163 Sometimes, the installation paths are hardcoded into installed files.
164 This is the reason why <filename class="directory">/opt/qt5</filename>
165 is used as installation prefix instead of <filename
166 class="directory">/opt/qt-&qt5-version;</filename>. To create a
167 versioned <application>Qt5</application> directory, you may rename
168 the directory and create a symlink:
169 </para>
170
171<screen role="root"><userinput>mkdir /opt/qt-&qt5-version;
172ln -sfnv qt-&qt5-version; /opt/qt5</userinput></screen>
173
174 <para>
175 Later on, you may want to install other versions of
176 <application>Qt5</application>. To do that, just remove the symlink
177 and use <filename class="directory">/opt/qt5</filename> as the
178 prefix again. Which version of <application>Qt5</application> you
179 use depends only on where the symlink points.
180 </para>
181 </tip>

183 <note><para>If <xref linkend="qca"/> has been installed and you are
184 reinstalling or updating this package, then

193 <warning>
194 <para>
195 If <application>Qt5</application> is being reinstalled into the
196 same directory as an existing instance, run the commands done by
197 <systemitem class="username">root</systemitem>, such as
198 <command>make install</command>, from a console or non-Qt5 based
199 window manager. It overwrites <application>Qt5</application>
200 libraries that should not be in use during the install process.
201 </para>
202 </warning>
203
204 <caution>
205 <para>
206 If you did not install some of the recommended dependencies, examine
207 <command>./configure --help</command> output to check how to disable
208 them or use internal versions bundled in the source tarball.

214 The build time and space required for the full
215 <application>Qt5</application> is quite long. The instructions below
216 do not build the tutorials and examples. Removing the

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