Hi, all:

After successfully downloaded and built *PyQt5*, I'm trying to install 
*PyQt5_gpl* with the command *make install*, but meet the following 
*ERROR* messages:

//opt/Qt/Current/gcc_64/bin/qmake -install qinstall -exe 
//Error copying ....../PyQt5_gpl-5.12.1/PyQt5.api to 
/opt/Qt/Current/gcc_64/qsci/api/python/PyQt5.api: Cannot create 
/opt/Qt/Current/gcc_64/qsci/api/python/PyQt5.api for output//
//Makefile:4266: recipe for target 'install_qscintilla_api' failed//
//make: [install_qscintilla_api] Error 3 (ignored)//
///usr/bin/python ....../PyQt5_gpl-5.12.1/mk_distinfo.py "" 
/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/PyQt5-5.12.1.dist-info installed.txt//
//Traceback (most recent call last)://
//  File "....../PyQt5_gpl-5.12.1/mk_distinfo.py", line 108, in <module>//
//    fn_f = open(fn, 'rb')//
//FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 
//Makefile:4275: recipe for target 'install_distinfo' failed//
//make: *** [install_distinfo] Error 1//
//****  Installation failed. Aborting package creation.//
//Restoring overwritten files from backup... FAILED!/

/Cleaning up...OK//


*I actually have Qt installed under /opt/Qt:*


/➜  python ls//
//➜  python pwd//

I wonder if it has something to do with *PYTHONPATH* ?

/Most of my Python packages are installed via *pip* under 

/instead of */usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/*/
