Apps installation problem
 
Hi all,

I bought a seconds n900( rarely used), it came with a stock os version is like 1.2009.42 something. i tried to install some softwares like "Twimgo" but there was an error, libqt.4.6.2 is missing. there where four five different type libqt files were missing. So i tried to find a solution for that but failed.
After searching here for long time i read somewhere that the problem will be solved after updating to the latest version. so i updated the os via nokia suite and it is now became 21.2011.38-1.003 version. But now whenever i tried to install some apps it gets the same error. Now it is libqt4.7.2 is missing. so what do i have to do to install these apps. I'm new to this don't know any codding, any help will be really appreciated.

Type in Terminal as root (rootsh needed to become root):

Code:

apt-get install libqt
I think this should do it - i am a N9 user :D

If you have installed rootsh package, enter
Code:

sudo gainroot
or
Code:

root
once in terminal and then any command. You might wanna use sudo if youre new to maemo.

"/home/user # apt-get install libqt
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree

E: Couldn't find package libqt

Thanks for the reply. But now i tried the step again, i get another error message.

"E: Couldn't find package libqt"

Do i have to reflash the mobile to get it right? is there any any problem with my current os.

Well then it should be:

Code:

sudo-gainroot
apt-get update -f
apt-get upgrade
apt-get install libqt-dev_4.7.2

I think this should do it but I don't know about the package name. But an alternative could be to install CSSU update it will provide you updated packages and more features. :)

Code:

sudo gainroot
Space, not a hyphen.

I doubt the OP wants libqt-dev. Generally, "foo-dev" packages are for developers of foo. I don't think the OP wants to develop libqt.

I've just checked my phone and I have a whole bunch of libqt4-* (libqt4-core, libqt4-gui, libqt4-network...). Twimgo lists quite a few of them as dependencies so the OP's best bet is to install CSSU as nokiabot suggested. That will pull the lot.
