Don't get me started....
I agree - it might be more popular if it was possible to install it. Keep
in mind however, it is not licensed to be run under Windows because Qt is
not GPL'd for Win32. I was reminded of this and was told to stop trying to
install it on Windows. Also, even if you could get it installed, I don't
think it was even tested or coded to run on Win32 so it probably has all
kinds of gotchas.
I also tried a fresh install of Linux for the sole purpose of checking this
IDE out and gave up after 3 days of failing to satisfy all dependencies.
The older verison went in no problem, but it lacks most of the features of
v3. You are not alone in your installation woes...
