I have quite a bit of a problem, whenever I try to install texmaker, it asks me to have qt 5.7 or greater on the system. I installed the qt 5.9.1 from the web installer given at qt page, and re-tried the installation process. Nothing happened, same error. After that I tried adding the directory where it got installed to the PATH environment, but then again, nothing happened.
I’ve been searching for answers on how to get it to work, but I cant find anything. This was my last resource, since I think it’s something easy, but I haven’t figured out yet how to get it to work.
In case anyone is wondering why I want the latest version of texmaker, it’s due to the fact that I’m constantly writing, and the Live-preview would be helpful.
Thanks for replying.
I got the qt version from qt.io/downloads. And I followed the steps in there, also. But it didn’t work at all. I’ve been trying for quite a while, but everything I do, doesn’t seem to help.
I can’t imagine what guide you’re following to install, but YaST or zypper should step you through installing this package letting you know what dependencies might be missing, and then you can use various methods to add repos which can provide packages for those dependencies.
Or, if you don’t mind using v4.5, it’s immediately available which should install without extra work.
You can also submit a “feature request” to https://bugzilla.opensuse.org asking the maintainer for Texmaker to update packages to the latest version from the Project.
