I needed a copy of QMake to install MultimonNG on Ubuntu 17.10. QMake is a component of the Qt Framework. It is a utility to automate the generation of makefiles. The generated makefile is then used to build a final application (in this case MultimonNG).

Unfortunately, getting a copy of QMake proved to be not quite as easy as sudo apt install qmake! So for the next time I need MultimonNG on a different Posix system this is what I ended up doing:-


git clone --depth=1
cd multimon-ng
sudo apt install qt5-qmake
export QT SELECT=qt5
sudo ln /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/bin/qmake /usr/bin/qmake
qmake -v
# => QMake version 3.1
# => Using Qt version 5.9.1 in /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu
mkdir build && cd build
qmake ../ PREFIX=/usr/local
sudo apt install libpulse-dev libx11-dev
sudo make install
multimon-ng -h
# => multimon-ng 1.1.5


The command I used to test MultimonNG:-

multimon-ng example/ufsk1200.raw -t raw

MultimonNG can be found on Github

Now… What was it I needed MultimonNG for again?
