I have successfully compliled command prompt application in for Windows platform using cygwin (1.5.25-15). I need to use cygwin as my program requires Unix header files and only cygwin allows me to compile my program in a Windows environment.
Now i need to improve my program to make it a GUI application. And this is where I need help.
I am intending to use QT4.5.3 to create my GUI. And I have read about installin QT in cygwin to do that. After reading all the archives, I am really confused. I need some clear instructions on how it can be down.
Is it possible for you to guide me in achieving this? I need to install QT in cygwin so that I can make my command prompt application to become a GUI application.
I am using QT because it is able to create GUI application for Windows and Linux platforms. And more importantly QT is WYSIWYG which makes creating a GUI application simpler.
I would definitely accept other suggestions to achieve my objective if there are other alternatives. Thanks in advance for your help
Platform: Windows XP Professional
Compiler: cygwin (1.5.25-15)
1.5.25-15 is the version of the "cygwin" package. The compiler (gcc)
version is 3.4.4 for the
1.5.x release of Cygwin.
I'm no QT expert (and I actually haven't even touched it in years) but from
what I can see,
only QT3 is available as part of the release. There is this message from
Yaakov a while
back about QT4:
Not sure how far he got, since Cygwin Ports (cygwinports.dotsrc.org) isn't
accessible to me at
the moment. So perhaps there is a QT4 floating around for Cygwin 1.5.x on
that site. If not,
you'd have to build it yourself.
