I installed PyQt4 with synaptic.

I'm using Python3 so I need to configure the path for PyQt4 in eclipse, but it seems synaptic only installed PyQt4 for python 2 since I only found relative files and folders under python 2.6 and 2.7.

So how can I make PyQt4 to work with Python 3 and eclipse ?



I tried to configure it following this post:

But after following all the instructions without any error occurs in the way, I get error from running this code in python 3.2:

>>> import PyQt4

The error message is :

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
ImportError: No module named PyQt4

But the strange thing is that the same code results NO error in python 2.7 (I have both 2.7 and 3.2 installed on my machine)

Should be possible. The source sits at Riverbank's site. However, compiling it might not be a one-line deal but should work. Have a look at a thread over at the ubuntuforum where eranga1988 had a similar problem.

Further down in that thread CoBrA2168 seems to give a solution:

  • download both SIP and PyQt4 from the official website

  • install qmake, python3.1-dev, gcc-c++ (for the g++ command), and the libqt4-dev.

  • then the compilation worked along the following lines



    sudo make install

  • note that some had to provide qmake's location to the call to python above:

    python -q /usr/lib/qt4/bin/qmake

    where they got the path to qmake from locate qmake

You might have to tune this to your version of Python 3. Good luck.
