It is the right qmake, but for some reason compiling the small Qt4 test
app fails.

Check to see that there exists a qtdirs.pro and qtdirs.cpp as well as a
qtdirs.mk. If all of those exist try running make -f qtdirs.mk

My guess is that the last one fails with some error message, post that
error here.

Oh and btw, make sure you installed libqt4-dev and qt4-dev-tools.


You are fairminded, just and loving.
