    Look at the spec file for the rpm which is for openSUSE to see what special
    settings you need to configure and compile it
    https://build.opensuse.org/package/f...ect=KDE%3AKDE3
    just click on the pdfedit.spec link on that page.

    Why not just install it from the repos? There should be no need to
    compile it or build it, just go to the console prompt and type:

    sudo zypper in pdfedit

    I show it in the Packman repository, so you might need to add that using
    YaST's repository manager.

    I'd probably ask in the Programming/Scripting forum but otherwise somehow
    you'll need to figure out what the QTDIR is and then set it before running
    ../configure so the first step is to know what it is. QT is for KDE, so
    are you using KDE? You may need some kde*-devel package to get something
    to automatically set that, or you may just need to use a configure
    parameter like --with-qtdir=/path/to/your/qtdir, though even then you need
    to know which directory to point to. The responses to this other forum
    post seemed to provide some interesting information:

    http://lists.debian.org/debian-qt-kd.../msg00033.html

    Good luck.

    Thanks, but I learn about about linux when I try it this way, I found what I was looking for in the README file (which I should have first) and its all in there.

    Cheers
