Trying to compile Mate's QtWebEngine package from source, getting errors

Post by very » Mon Jan 14, 2019 6:10 pm

I start by getting the package libqt5webengine5 from source:

Code: Select all

apt-get source libqt5webengine5
I got an error early on that it could not find the Netscape Portable Runtime library files so I figured out i needed this package:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install libnspr4-dev
Then I start compiling

Code: Select all

$ qmake qtwebengine.pro
$ make
and it runs for a while until it get to the directory

Code: Select all

qtwebengine-opensource-src-5.9.5+dfsg/src/core/
and it throws this error:

Code: Select all

Project ERROR: Unknown module(s) in QT_PRIVATE: quick-private
I narrowed it down to this command, but I can't figure out what it means:

Code: Select all

/usr/lib/qt5/bin/qmake -o Makefile.core_generator ./qtwebengine-opensource-src-5.9.5+dfsg/src/core/core_generator.pro
Project ERROR: Unknown module(s) in QT_PRIVATE: quick-private
I've tried installing all the libqt5quick* packages that I could find, but none of them are fixing this. Does anyone have any clues that can drop me? Thx

To get dependencies needed to build the package, run:

Code: Select all

apt build-dep libqt5webengine5
