1. Requirements
  • QT 4.2.3 - I use this version for development. Maybe it will compile with lower version such as QT 4.2.2 or 4.2.1. I don't know. You have to try.
  • SQLite 3.3.x. I use 3.3.16 now
  • QT 4 development tools
  • gcc some version. I use 4.1.2

  • 2. Compile
  • 1. download the source
  • 2. untar it - tar -xzvf qcat-0.5-src.tar.gz
  • 3. cd qcat-dist-0.5
  • 4. here is the tricky part. Perhaps you use QT 3.3.x. So to compile qcat you have export QT_DIR and PATH for QT4. Check where is installed QT4. For example if QT4 is in /opt/qt4 type these commands:
    export QT_DIR=/opt/qt4
    export PATH=/opt/qt4/bin:$PATH
  • 5. run qmake
  • 6. make
  • 7. If all is ok, the result shall be an executable file in qcat-dist-0.5/bin named qcat.
  • 8. run it and enjoy.

  • 3. Install
    I've not written any install target, script or so on, so you can just copy "qcat" file somewhere in you path. The install script/target is is in my TODO list.
