I can't really figure out what it means. Is it a dependency issue?


Assuming you're using ubuntu, there's no need to compile from source just to get pyuic4. If you install the correct official packages, everything should be included.

Just install either this:

  • Python 2: python-qt4 and pyqt4-dev-tools

Or this:

  • Python 3: python3-pyqt4 and pyqt4-dev-tools
