manual installation using system QT (abandoned)

Instead of using the use the following commands to do the setup

  • sudo apt-get install -y git-core g++ cmake extra-cmake-modules kio-dev gettext pkg-config
  • sudo apt-get install -y pkg-kde-tools qtbase5-dev qtdeclarative5-dev kio-dev
  • sudo apt-get install -y libqt5websockets5-dev libkf5i18n-dev libkf5notifications-dev libkf5plasma-dev libkf5kio-dev

then install the additional packages for libqt5webview5-dev manually

additional debian packages

download the deb files:

install with:

  • sudo apt install ./libqt5webenginecore5_5.11.3+dfsg-2+deb10u1_armhf.deb
  • sudo apt install ./libqt5webengine5_5.11.3+dfsg-2+deb10u1_armhf.deb
  • sudo apt install ./libqt5webview5_5.11.3-2_armhf.deb
  • sudo apt install ./libqt5webview5-dev_5.11.3-2_armhf.deb

continue setup

  • mkdir -p build-testing
  • cd build-testing

clean if the directory already existed

  • rm -r *
  • make -j4
  • sudo make install
  • cd ..

build lottie

  • rm -rf lottie-qml/
  • git clone
  • cd lottie-qml
  • mkdir build
  • cd build
  • make
  • sudo make install


I gave up on this approach because the system QT is designed and built to be used with a complete X11 stack and that was not my idea. In addition the QML of the GUI is using the KDE framwork Kirigami and needs version 2.7 which is a lot newer than what the system packages provide.
