Hi,

I'm trying to build (correction by jstaniek) Kexi from Calligra 2.9.11 source code into Debian Jessie. But I going over first step with cmake because cmake failled to find qtcore/QtGlobal.... I'm using QT 4.8.6, and there is may be some Qt5 libraries (only binaries but not dev tools) installed into my PC...

It's like this thread into Qt center, but without any responses...

This is the error message :

Code: Select all

Hi Patrick. I renamed the thread because you're building Callingra, not installing.

Please see the https://community.kde.org/Calligra/Building page. In particular you seem to need -dev packages - dependencies needed for build time, all build tools are also needed to build Kexi:

https://community.kde.org/Calligra/Buil ... tributions

Presence of Qt 5 on the same system is not going to be any problem for building Qt 4 applications (such as Kexi 2.9). Qt is designed to be usable side-by-side for both versions. The same with KDE libraries (4) and KDE Frameworks (5).

Ok but I don't understand if the command "sudo apt-get build-dep calligra" is suitable because Calligra packages for Debian Jessie are based on Calligra 2.8 not 2.9.11 as needed to the build... My be I'm wrong because I thing Calligra sources packages and not calligra build... I'll test this evening !

`apt-get build-dep calligra` is a good approximation: it finds build dependencies for you in a very convenient way. They most likely did not change since the last time...

Do I need new KDE depot for Debian Jessie ? Because Debian Jessie use Calligra binaries packages 2.8 and to build I need Calligra 2.9.11 build packages ?

I don't think you need that. 2.8 and 2.9 are both minor releases. You an safely try to build 2.9.11 with these dependencies that worked for 2.8. Or if you can and want, code from calligra/2.9 branch of calligra.git is the newest one (newer than 2.9.11)

Sorry, I missed to explain I would like to build Kexi (Calligra) 2.9.11 because I understand Kexi (Calligra 2.8) can't open SQLite files... Or I doesn't understand how to use SQLigts files with Kexi 2.8 (comming with Debian Jessie distribution). Last Kexi featrures show it will be now OK with Sqlite 3.2, but I can't say it's 2.9.11 stables features or 3.0.a developement features ?

If you mean support for SQLite3 files not created with Kexi: support for this depends on interest:

A wish is here https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=125843
And funding here https://www.bountysource.com/issues/268 ... -databases

Kexi is not meant to be specific database editor/designer, it's a rapid application development environment, so you start with it until you develop a final product/result.

For general SQLite3 editing via GUI, there's sqliteman for example.

OK ! Thank you for your explanations. But my problem is that kexi 2.8 can't run on windows, and I need a cross platform application (with no install). So I would like to use Kexi to manage sqlite file (and use a tool like Kexi with formulas to populate database quicly) as a prototype, then I would like to use lazarus (Pascal Object alternative to Delphi) to build final cross platform application...

Interesting. Creating prototypes (even UX mockups) is within Kexi future reach. 3.0 is "almost" ready for Windows :)

PS: sqliteman runs on Windows. It's a tool often used for testing content's of Kexi files out there.

This evening I'm on my debian. So the command below :

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get build-dep calligra
[sudo] password for gelinp:
Lecture des listes de paquets... Fait
Construction de l'arbre des dépendances       
Lecture des informations d'état... Fait
0 mis à jour, 0 nouvellement installés, 0 à enlever et 0 non mis à jour.


And looking for buid-dep calligra package into synaptic without any success, ask myself about the this package exist or not... It look's like there is no build-dep calligra package...

This is my source list :

Regarding configuration distributions I'd redirect you to distribution forums. Unless a Debian user helps here.

Feel free to improve the build instructions linked above when you find working solution.
