Qt 4 & 5 - backports (Xenial only)

PPA description

Backports of Qt 4.8.7+dfsg-7ubuntu2 & Qt 5.9.5+dfsg-0ubuntu2.5 for Xenial.

Qt 4 & 5 packages backported from Bionic providing a newer, more compatible version of Qt to Xenial users than is officially available (Xenial ships with an old version 5.5.1 which is incompatible with a variety of newer software).

*** Install ***

Additional PPAs are required for full installation of Qt 5.9.5 on Xenial-era systems. A newer APT is required for PackageKit backports and FFMpeg >= 4.2 is required for Qt multimedia packages. Do these steps for full installation:

  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:savoury1/ffmpeg4
  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:savoury1/apt-xenial
  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:savoury1/qt-xenial
  sudo apt-get update
  sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

*** Note about Qt styles: To get full customisation of Qt 5 styles, do this:

  sudo apt-get install qt5ct qt5-style-plugins

Then launch qt5ct ("Qt5 Settings" in application menu) and customise away.

*** Note for Mint 18.1 Serena: An environment variable set in an Xsession startup file installed by mint-artwork-common causes an issue with qt5ct (the Qt 5 configuration tool). Thus, a modified version of mint-artwork-common is provided here which does not set the environment variable and that requires the installation of qt5ct (to ensure that Qt 5 styles function correctly).

*** Build ***

This PPA has build dependencies on:
