I want to use Sigil, which isn't in the official repositories. First I added a repository called home_xwaver and installed it from there, but it started throwing errors, unable to save a book. I found a blog post telling me to change some libraries, but I couldn't find the installation location of sigil. The executable was in /usr/share/bin, but I found no folder containing libraries, it wasn't in the default location of /opt/sigil.
As a second try, I deinstalled the package and tried to download it from its homepage. I downloaded the source and tried to compile it. It turned out to require QT 4.7.0, and the one I have installed is 4.8.2, so it wouldn't compile. I don't know where I can change the required version, and if it will work at all if I compile it with the new QT.
Edit some details: Sigil has no configure file. The docu says to run
cmake -G "Unix Makefiles" -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release /path/to/extracted/folder make sudo make install
cmake line already fails for me. The error is
CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake/Modules/FindPackageHandleStandardArgs.cmake:97 (MESSAGE): Could NOT find Qt4 (missing: QT_QTWEBKIT_INCLUDE_DIR) (found suitable version "4.8.2", required is "4.7.0") Call Stack (most recent call first): /usr/share/cmake/Modules/FindPackageHandleStandardArgs.cmake:288 (_FPHSA_FAILURE_MESSAGE) /usr/share/cmake/Modules/FindQt4.cmake:1172 (FIND_PACKAGE_HANDLE_STANDARD_ARGS) src/Sigil/CMakeLists.txt:37 (find_package)
The third thing I tried was a compiled file from the home page. I didn't have high hopes, because it is deprecated. (Currently, there is no non-deprecated Linux installation file on the home page, only Windows and Mac files). It started a graphical installer which hung itself in the middle of installation.
Is it possible to install Sigil on the current Fedora, and how can I do it?
