Hello Experts!

This is my first attempt to use QT.

I dragged and dropped kcolorbutton component.

Now I cannot compile, compiler cannot find "kcolorbutton.h" file.

What should I do?

Thank you

'kcolorbutton.h' is not part of Qt, at least not for the Windows version - it actually belongs to KDE.

Oh, BTW - if you are in fact compiling on Linux, installing the KDE development environment should work (see http://techbase.kde.org/Development or better the Packet Manager of your choice).

I suggest you download Qt library or QtSdk to get all tools together before start developing. KDE version of things are little different.

So if I develop my application using this component and run it on Linux without KDE it will not work?

No, it wouldn't work without KDE, e.g. Gnome would fail - they're simply not compatible. That's the price you have to pay when being able to choose between different desktop environments.

Are there any components (like drop down menus etc) which I may use with QT and would work on any Ubuntu/ Fedora PCs?

Thank you

All will work - given that you install the necessary KDE libs ;o)

If you are into a platform-independent alternative, take a look at http://wxwidgets.org/
