Gallium OS, install script fails

I am trying to install using the Debian script, but fails to compile. At first it looked like qtmake was not installed and I apt-get installed qt4-qmake it installed. I then tried running the script again and now I get this error:

Creating build directory ‘build’:
The build process may take a few minutes.

I am pretty rusty on Linux as its been awhile since I have used it. I running a Dell Chrome book with Gallium OS installed. Hoping this setup will work for portable OPS.

Hi Matt,

Did you press “Y” to install dependencies? It seems like a lot of expected files are not being found.

Also You must use Qt5 not Qt4. I have never used Gallium so the dependant packages may have slightly different names?

Yes, I did press y to install dependencies. Will try again and see if I can remove qt4. Will let you know what happens.

Thanks,

Matt

Well I removed QT4 and ran the script again. Still fails. This is what I get:

./fullbuild-wfview.sh
This script will download dependencies, build, and install wfview.
It is designed for debian-based systems and
makes use of the apt command to satisfy dependencies.

If it has been a while since this script was downloaded,
or if there are build errors, please use this command to
download a newer version of this script:

wget https://gitlab.com/eliggett/scripts/-/raw/master/fullbuild-wfview.sh?inline=false -O fullbuild-wfview.sh; chmod 755 fullbuild-wfview.sh

The ‘sudo’ command is used to run some commands as root.
It (the sudo command) will ask for your password during this process.
You should look at the source of this script if you have any doubts.

Do you wish to install dependencies first?
If this is your first time building wfview,
or, if you have not done so in a while,
please select ‘y’, otherwise, press ‘n’.
If you are not sure, select ‘y’ to be safe.

Press Y to install dependencies (Y/n): y

what if you do a hash -r and restart the build?

It looks like it tres to execute qt4’s qmake here.

(it seems to rely on 18.04 LTS which is old. like OLD by the way)

I am not sure how to do that. I did try again, it failed. I also tried doing qmake -r and got this:

Error in qmake step.
cb@PortaMat:~/Downloads$ qmake -r
qmake: could not exec ‘/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt4/bin/qmake’: No such file or directory

Thanks for helping, hope we can sort this out.

Matt

open a console, type the above command, hit enter.

I did the command hash -r, then ran the script. it did the same thing stating " Starting build process.
qmake: could not exec ‘/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt4/bin/qmake’: No such file or directory
Error in qmake step."

no change :frowning:

why is qmake not found? I went to the path location and found in the bin qdbus and not qmake. weird. I checked the path with qt5 in it and see the files, but is the script calling qt4 path, is the system directing it to qt4 instead of qt5? if so how do I change it?

Thank you,
Matt

The script will call whatever is installed as the ‘current’ qmake.

It looks like something is screwed-up in your build environment? You can try the qtchooser command (if it’s available on your OS) https://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/jammy/man1/qtchooser.1.html

73 Phil M0VSE

Thanks Phil, Here is my build environment:
qtchooser -print-env
QT_SELECT=“default”
QTTOOLDIR=“/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt4/bin”
QTLIBDIR=“/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu”

As I see looks like the path is set for qt4/bin. I am now trying to figure out how to edit the path.

This the the listed versions:
cb@PortaMat:~/Downloads$ qtchooser -l
4
5
default
qt4-x86_64-linux-gnu
qt4
qt5-x86_64-linux-gnu
qt5

I do have qt5 installed, I also tried removing qt4 but my systems says qt4 is not installed. Grrr. how ever I am stuck figuring out how to edit the path. The online doc is not very clear to me and trying to use the qtchooser does not seem to like me.

Hope to understand and figure this out. I am learning too. Thanks, Matt

I DID IT! I DID IT!!!

all I had to do was use the following command: export QT_SELECT=qt5

that changed my path to use qt5

So I ran the script again, with fingers crossed and it started compiling!!!
WFview is now installed and I was able to launch it!!! Now to configure it to use my IC705.

WOOT!

Thank you very much for helping and pointing me in the right direction!! I am sure I will have more questions to ask and you guys rock with support and responsiveness. Looking forward to testing this out.

BTW I am running a DELL Rugged Chrome Book with custom firmware. only paid $40 for it, cheaper than a Raspberry PI. I cant wait to see how this works.

Thanks guys, now I cant seem to connect the radio via wireless. I have set the IC705 to AP mode and connected to it, set my user1 user name and password, set the host name to the IP address of the radio 192.168.59.1 CVI is on and set to transceive. WFVIew cant find the radio. I can ping the radio from the laptop but no workie. I am looking to see if there is a firewall blocking traffic now. Hope to get this connected. One step closer.

well I got it working!!! I missed to setup under remote setting to turn on Network control. whoops! So when I connect to the radio WFview’s window expands and goes out of bounds on my screen. On the right side it gets cut off just before the E on exit program.

I also have TX and RX audio working too!!! This is awesome!! works great on the chrome book, nice and smooth very little lag if any. Thanks again!!
