I tried to download "ECMConfig.cmake" from repository, but terminal gives me an error: "question's title + The following configuration files were considered but not accepted: ECMConfig.cmake : version is unknowed. I tried to search on Google, but got nothing. I wanted to compile from source "kde frameworks" using this command:

cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/home/john/QtProjects/KDEStuff/frameworkintegration/build/ 
         -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=debugfull -DCMAKE_PREFIX_PATH=/home/john/Downloads/

"/home/john/Downloads/" - where my *.cmake is.


Try to clone, compile and install the extra-cmake-modules KDE project. 

git clone git://anongit.kde.org/extra-cmake-modules
cd extra-cmake-modules
mkdir build && cd build    
cmake ..
make && sudo make install
  • Too bad that these commands did not work in my case. I've got CMake Error at /usr/local/share/ECM/modules/ECMQueryQmake.cmake:23 with message QMake call failed: No such file or directory even after execution of all above. Update is appreciated. – im_infamous Jun 20 '16 at 18:54
  • @im_infamous Please check that last command sudo make install was succesfull. – Diego Lopez Jun 23 '16 at 11:52

In my case I simply had to install the extra-cmake-modules package.
