HI,everyone. Recent days I want to install open foam extend 3.1 on my ubuntu 14.04. When I SAW the code export QT_BIN_DIR=/path/to/qmake
echo "export QT_BIN_DIR=/path/to/qmake" >> etc/ . I was pauzzled if should I replace the /path/to/qmake with the addresss of qmake . Because in the past installation of extend 3.2 , I noticed a note of replacing .
Please tell me what to do ,thanks very much .

Quick answer: Quoting from here:

On bash (if unsure whether you are using bash, run "echo $SHELL"):
export QT_BIN_DIR=/path/to/qmake_directory
echo "export QT_BIN_DIR=$QT_BIN_DIR" >> etc/
  • Note: If you don't know what is /path/to/qmake, try checking what the following commands give you:
    which qmake
    which qmake-qt4
    For example, you might get the following answer:
    from which the path "/usr/bin/" should be used for replacing "/path/to/qmake_directory", which means that you would run the following commands:
    export QT_BIN_DIR=/usr/bin/
    echo "export QT_BIN_DIR=$QT_BIN_DIR" >> etc/
