in thread perl + Qt, the easy way

I too was surprised to see Qt4 bindings in KDE sources instead of CPAN. Since KDE 5 was released this summer, but last update of Perl-Qt was in November and involved something about KDE4, I guess that this binding will be slowly dying, too. But at least it's usable for now, while Qt5 still deals with font issues (all fixed in 5.4) having reached third minor release: surely, but slowly.

Speaking about usability, at least 480 people regularly use perl-qt4 it and 7124 have it installed for some reason, despite the absence of packages depending on libqtgui4-perl (pyqt4 is 20 times more popular, and there are approximately 97 packages depending on python-qt4 while not being a python library; pyqt5 is not so widely used as of now).

Your point is proven, but, still, I think that installing Qt module from KDE bindings is a lesser mess than employing Python as Qt GUI "driver".

    Windows supported or not?
    cross-platform is a must
        My eyes see that MSWin32 completely broken: 0 PASSED, status only UNKNOWN on some versions because it even could not reach PASSED/FAIL stage.

        Can you please elaborate on how it is "PASSED" in 5.18.0?

        all I see is bogus report

        Report for Qt4-0.99.0 Raw Back From: Alexandr Ciornii CHORNY Subject: UNKNOWN Qt4-0.99.0 v5.18.0 Windows (Win32) Date: 2013-08-04T20:40:20Z This distribution has been tested as part of the CPAN Testers project, supporting the Perl programming language. See for more information or email questions to -- Dear Chris Burel, This is a computer-generated report for Qt4-0.99.0 on perl 5.18.0, created by CPAN-Reporter-1.2010_01. Thank you for uploading your work to CPAN. However, attempting to test your distribution gave an inconclusive result. This could be because your distribution had an error during the make/b +uild stage, did not define tests, tests could not be found, because your te +sts were interrupted before they finished, or because the results of the tests +could not be parsed. You may wish to consult the CPAN Testers Wiki: Sections of this report: * Tester comments * Program output * Prerequisites * Environment and other context ------------------------------ TESTER COMMENTS ------------------------------ Additional comments from tester: this report is from an automated smoke testing program and was not reviewed by a human for accuracy ------------------------------ PROGRAM OUTPUT ------------------------------ Output from 'C:\strawberry180\perl\bin\perl.exe Makefile.PL': You must have cmake installed to compile PerlQt4. at Makefile.PL line +54.
