Wait, before you do any of that, are you sure you did this (from the MuseScore compile instructions)?

Code: Select all

echo "PATH=~/Qt5.3.2/5.3.2/gcc/bin:$PATH" >> ~/.bashrc
source  ~/.bashrc

Actually, they recommend installing Qt 5.3.2 on Ubuntu 14.04, not Qt 5.4. Not sure why, but there must be a reason for it.

If, however, you want to try it against Qt 5.4, you need to replace the appropriate version numbers in the echo line below.

I should type that in the terminal, right?

I tried installing it from the ppa you suggested, but it wouldn't find the packages, so I'll try the qt online installer. And it doesn't have to be 5.3.2, they say:

Download and install Qt 5.3 (or later) from http://qt-project.org/downloads

OK, then you won’t need to install anything else. Just type these (adjusted) commands in the same terminal in which you issue the make commands:

Code: Select all

echo "PATH=~/Qt5.4.0/5.4/gcc/bin:$PATH" >> ~/.bashrc
source  ~/.bashrc

And don’t forget to run a

Code: Select all

make clean

before issuing your make commands again.
