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 ***

Due building against newer graphics and multimedia libraries from other PPAs on this Launchpad site, some packages here require newer libraries to install successfully. These are the packages and the PPAs that provide the libraries:

  * qt5-image-formats-plugins ~ graphics
  * libqgsttools-p1, libqt5multimedia5-plugins ~ multimedia
  * libqt5webenginecore5, libqtav1 ~ multimedia, ffmpeg4

To install all required PPAs for all updated Qt packages published here:

  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:savoury1/graphics
  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:savoury1/multimedia
  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:savoury1/ffmpeg4
  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 users: An environment variable set in an Xsession startup file that is installed by mint-artwork-common causes an issue with qt5ct (Qt 5 configuration tool). A modified version of mint-artwork-common is provided here, that does not set the environment variable and that requires the install of qt5ct (to ensure Qt 5 styles function correctly).
