Installing from .tar.gz produces errors

I am trying to install gpsbabel on my Intel Edison.

I am following the directions from here

copied gpsbabel-1.5.4.tar.gz to the edison root directory

tar xvf gpsbabel-1.5.4.tar.gz

cd gpsbabel-1.5.4/

./configure && make && make install

It doesn't work. I get errors

...

checking for qmake-qt5... no

checking for qmake... no

checking for lupdate-qt5... no

checking for lupdate... no

checking for lrelease-qt5... no

checking for lrelease... no

configure: error: Qt5.2 or higher is required, but was not found

I have the latest version 3.10.98-poky-edison+ # 1 SMP PREEMPT Mon Jun 6 14:32:08 PDT 2016 i686 GNU/Linux

What should I do???

Hi Allene,

 

 

Thank you for contacting us.

 

 

It seems that you need to Qt5 to install gpsbabel, unfortunately this package is not include in the Intel Edison's latest image.

 

 

I've never tried to configure Qt5 on the Edison, but I have found a guide that was made by a community user that describes how to configure Qt5 on the Edison. I'd suggest you to take a look at http://hobby.farit.ru/qt5-gui-intel-edison/, if you have issues installing it, I recommend you to try to contact the author of the guide for further information.

 

 

I really hope that you find this guide useful, and let us know if it works.

 

 

Have a nice day.

 

 

Regards,

I don't understand why qmake is involved as I called make, not qmake. But qmake talks about graphical interfaces and that is not what I want so maybe I have the wrong program. I am looking for a command line program. Humm... guess I have some research to do on gpsbabel.
