How to install QT 5.5 on Lubuntu 15.04

In this article i will show you how to install QT 5.5 on lubuntu 15.04, QT 5.5 is the latest QT framework by the time i wrote this article.

Before using QT 5.5 i already try using QT 5.2.1 on lubuntu 15.04 vivid vervet, and it also works well, the tutorial is pretty much the same for lubuntu 14.04.

If you already install previous version of QT, such as QT 5.2.1, then you will need to uninstall it first, i guess.

Step by step how to install QT 5.5 on Lubuntu 14.04
  • download QT 5.5 offline installer here 
  • open command line and go to where the qt installer located, the file should be in .run, mine was qt-opensource-linux-x86-5.5.0.run
  • give permission to read and write

  • chmod +rx qt-opensource-linux-x86-5.5.0.run

  • run the installer

  • ./qt-opensource-linux-x86-5.5.0.run

  • setup wizard will appear, follow the setup wizard until finish installing.
  • install c/c++ compiler 

  • sudo apt-get install build-essential

  • install openGL lib

  • sudo apt-get install libgl1-mesa-dev

  • finish, now you can open the QT creator (IDE) and start developing QT app on lubuntu

Happy coding !!!
