PyQt setup for Qt 4.7.4

I try to install PyQt to develop Python apps using Qt.
I downloaded SIP and PyQt4 from http://www.riverbankcomputing.co.uk and compiled the packages.

But I encountered a problem while compiling PyQt4:

I ran python configure.py in the Terminal and I got:

Error: Make sure you have a working Qt v4 qmake on your PATH or use the -q
argument to explicitly specify a working Qt v4 qmake.

I looked in Qt settings and i saw the path for qmake defined here 'home/user/.QtSDK/Simulator/Qt/gcc/bin/qmake'. Where else should be this path set up?

And how can i configure qt so i can write code directly into Qt Creator and execute it from there like any other c++ file for example. I installed Qt from the Nokia website and it was installed in /home/user/.QtSDK folder.


Answer Source

The error message says that the PyQt installer cannot find the qmake executable. Running these two commands should solve it:

export PATH

Afterwards, resume your installation.
