Hey guys,



i am currently installing openFOAM 1912 and have some trouble building Qt. I downloaded the right tarball (https://download.qt.io/archive/qt/5.9/5.9.9/single/) extracted it into the thirdparty folder and started building it using "./makeQt 5.9.9". Just as it says in the BUILD.md



After severals minutes i get the following error and the building aborts:


Code:
 Info: creating cache file /home/thenew/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-v1912/build/linux64Gcc/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-5.9.9/qtdeclarative/.qmake.cache
sh: 1: python: not found
Project ERROR: Building QtQml requires Python.
Makefile:334: recipe for target 'module-qtdeclarative-make_first' failed
make: *** [module-qtdeclarative-make_first] Error 3
Command exited with non-zero status 2

0inputs+3837616outputs (351major+59299359minor)pagefaults 0swaps
Error building: Qt-5.9.9
I am using Ubuntu 18.04 lts on a Thinkpad e495. Any idea what caused the error and how to overcome it?


Greetings and thanks in advance:


Lukas

it seems in ubuntu 18.04 you cant call python by "python", if you haven't installed python2.7. So i just needed to install python 2.7, did so by

Code:
sudo apt install python
. Worked just fine afterwards.
