libqt4-webkit 4:4.8.7 is missing from Mint 18.2

Post by Jim Jensen » Sat Feb 24, 2018 7:58 pm

What happened to this package? Apparently it has been removed from the Ubuntu Xenial repository. Where can I download libqt4-webkit 4:4.8.7 or a compatible version? PS: Since originally posting, I found libqtwebkit4 is installed, so now I need the development files (libqtwebkit4-dev). Any suggestions?

Additional information: I've attempted to upgrade to 18.2 from 17.1 several times over the past 2-3 months. Each time, libqt4-webkit was present in the repositories, since I was able to build several of my apps that depend on it. Each time I installed 18.2, I retreated to 17.1 due to 18.2's stability issues. Now, recently, someone has removed libqt4-webkit from the repositories. I found a note in Ubuntu Xenial's software download site to the effect that some genius over there had qt4webkit removed from Xenial. confused?? Please get it back.
