Installing PerlQt

Almost any distribution of Linux including Ubuntu, Fedora, Mandriva and Radados come with PerlQt.
Debian, Ubuntu and Radados users can install like by clicking this link radados-perlqt_1.4.3-3_all.deb

If the link is broken that means there is a newer version and this page has not been updated to find it in this directory repository

Most modern distributions have a graphical program that will install all the packages. If your browser asks you what program to open it with try /usr/bin/gdebi or /usr/bin/gdebi-kde

If you do not have a program like gdebi then you can install the package like so.

apt-get install libqt-perl

Radados users can install the PerlQt project manager using apt-get.

apt-get install radados-perlqt

There is no package to install the PerlQt Project Manager on systems other then Radados. If you are using Ubuntu, Mandriva or any other Linux OS you can download the tar file and extract it.

Download the tar file for the PerlQt Project Manager. You can extract in and run it from any directory you like. If you have root access you should copy the program to /usr/bin/ after you have extracted it.

To extract

mkdir ~/PerlQt/
tar xvfj radados-perlqt.tbz -C ~/PerlQt/

To copy to /usr/bin/ if you have root access

cd ~/PerlQt/
rsync -av ./usr/ /usr/

Once the PerlQt project manager is extracted in your home directory you will find the program ready to run like so.


You should run it from the command line the first time so you will be able to see any reports of missing libraries. Please see troubleshooting for help with any errors.
