Re: [vox-tech] kde/qt programming question

The problem is by creating a symlink, you only "fixed" finding the 
headers for your program. It does nothing to help the compiler to 
find the headers that other headers might include because they still 
just include <blah.h>, not <qt/blah.h>. This is why you get those 
errors after doing the symlink. What you need to do is remove the 
symlink, put your program back in its original form and pass the 
proper include directory to g++ when invoking the compiler. Try something 

g++ -I/usr/lib/qt2/include -o 1 1.cpp

Look at "man gcc" and "man g++" to learn how to use the compiler 
and give it the proper command line args for a given situation.
