Description tsteven4 2013-09-19 08:48:04 EDT
Description of problem:
lupdate-qt5 cannot find qmake configuration file default.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. svn co -r4619 http://gpsbabel.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/gpsbabel gpsbabel_wc
2. cd gpsbabel_wc
3. ./configure QMAKE=qmake-qt5 LUPDATE=lupdate-qt5 LRELEASE=lrelease-qt5
4. make EXTRA_CFLAGS='-fPIE' QT_LIBS='-L/usr/lib64 -l Qt5Core' linux-gui

Actual results:
the command 'cd gui; $(LUPDATE) app.pro' will fail with:
Could not find qmake configuration file default.
make: *** [gui] Error 1

Expected results:
make should succeed.  It has succeeded with Qt 5.1.1 that I compiled from source on this platform.

Additional info:
qmake-qt5, lupdate-qt5, lrelease-qt5 are found in /usr/bin by which.

qmake-qt5 -query results:

Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2013-09-19 09:47:32 EDT
Though, it may be preferable that instead trying:

 ./configure QMAKE=qmake-qt5 LUPDATE=lupdate-qt5 LRELEASE=lrelease-qt5

do this instead:

PATH=/usr/lib64/qt5/bin:$PATH ./configure

(but it may not help with this particular problem)
Comment 3 Kevin Kofler 2013-09-19 20:44:10 EDT
This is clearly not a duplicate of bug #1006254. Bug #1006254 is a CMake issue. Here, there is no CMake involved at all.

The problem here is that the lupdate-qt5 binary itself is not looking in the right place for the qmake configuration file default.

And by the way, I also think that
./configure QMAKE=qmake-qt5 LUPDATE=lupdate-qt5 LRELEASE=lrelease-qt5
is cleaner than messing with the PATH. Setting PATH shouldn't be necessary (if it'd help, it'd still be a bug in lupdate), and besides I don't expect it to help here (because lupdate probably isn't looking in PATH for data files, and it shouldn't, really).
Comment 4 tsteven4 2013-09-20 20:36:32 EDT
Created attachment 800804 [details]
simple testcase

untar the tar file in an empty directory.  run the script demo. my results are in demo.log

you can see my build of Qt 5.1.1 does something useful.  It creates test_de.qm (not included) and outputs
"Updating 'test_de.ts'...
    Found 0 source text(s) (0 new and 0 already existing)"

various ways of running the distributed Qt5 lupdate all return the message
"Could not find qmake configuration file default."

It doesn't matter if lupdate/lupdate-qt5 is in the path or not.

These test results are with 5.1.1-1.fc18, but I had similar output with 5.1.1-3.fc18.
Comment 5 tsteven4 2013-09-20 21:01:19 EDT
Part of my description was wrong, test_de.qm is produced by lrelease, not lupdate.

Please disregard the phrase "creates test_de.qm (not included)".
Comment 6 Rex Dieter 2013-09-21 02:00:45 EDT
Took awhile, but it looks like this is the Qt5 equivalent of bug #820767 , and a similar fix here does the trick.

To confirm,

QMAKE=/usr/lib64/qt5/bin/qmake lupdate-qt5 *.pro

this works.

Though... still not sure why manipulating $PATH doesn't help it to find qt5's qmake

Comment 8 Fedora Update System 2013-09-21 09:56:07 EDT

Comment 9 tsteven4 2013-09-21 09:59:34 EDT
https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=466108 (qt5-qttools-5.1.1-5.fc18) did not resolve the issue for me.  the output of the simple test case is identical.

On the other hand, although it should not be required, setting QMAKE does work with 5.1.1-1.

Heh, well, crap, that's what I get for not fully testing it first.  I think I'm on the right track though.

fix harder! :)
