I got it to build and work under Kubuntu Natty, I don't know how your system
is configured, or that much about compiling things, but from the looks of it
here is what I did different: I did not use the merge request (as I did know
how to apply it) But I did use the patch. I only used the development packages
that come installed by defualt in Kubuntu, and the ones I needed to use to
build Wayland Cairo Mese and some xproto stuff. I was using kubuntu natty,
maybe there is a version differance, or some dependancy already installed with
And be careful, I did not do this on a production install, but the install now
causes KDE apps to fail to load, so be careful.
I hope this helps a little bit.
I noticed that only ./bin/qtdemo works, others say symbol lookup error:
/usr/lib/egl/egl_dri2.so: undefined symbol: _glapi_get_proc_address
