Thread: QtWebKit

  1. #1

    Default QtWebKit

    I am trying to load an app that needs QtWebKit. (Actually, it needs the Python binding PyQt). I'm running OpenSuse 11.0 and I have Qt and PyQt, but not Qtwebkit.

    From what I can tell, QtWebKit is excluded from all versions of Qt available through a yast repository, but I am not sure if there is a conflict with khtml or some other reason it would have been excluded.

    I will probably try to install Qt straight from Trolltech to get complete package, then rebuild PyQt to get the bindings but I can not figure out why qtwebkit was excluded.
    Can anyone tell me what is going on and if this plan will cause a problem?

    Second, With 11.1 just days away I wondered if my problem will be resolved if I wait. It appears that KDE4 uses webkit, (I'm too happy with 3.5 to change right now) but not sure if its the qt version or some other fork and how it will affect me.

    I appreciate any info or help on the subject.

    Hi
    libQtWebKit is part of the default install?

    Default Re: QtWebKit -- resolved

    Just to post a resolution to this problem --
    as far as I can tell,...
    pyqt would not build the bindings to the libqtwebkit packaged with 11.0. I could not figure out why, but after downloading the complete qt toolkit from the trolltech website I was still unable to get pyqt to build the binding. So I went straight to the Riverbank website and tried again using their tarball instead of yast to run pyqt and create the bindings.

    Well I got the same result -- everything looked ok, and everything should have worked, and all the other qt bindings were built ok, but the qtwebkit binding was still not created.

    To summarize so far, I had a problem getting the webkit binding but it had nothing to do with the libqtwebkit packaged with Opensuse 11.0 or the pyqt.

    finally, i went into qtwebkit directory in pyqt, ran the makefile for that subdirectory only, it created the .so .sip files no problem. I then ran make install and it installed them no problem.

    I have no idea why main makefile was unable to do this, but my problem is solved.
