SleepyHead and Linux Mint 17.3 (Ubuntu 14.04)
I need help. Because of a bad HDD I was forced to reinstall Linux. I was a happy user of SleepyHead. Now, I can't find the version (I think it may be 0.9.6) that works with this version of Ubuntu. SleepyHead development has continued (thanks!) but the older versions don't exist anywhere apparent.

I've tried compiling to no avail. This version of linux has qt 5.2.1 and there's no way in my abilities to upgrade to qt 5.4 or better (apparently the minimum to successfully compile).

Any help is appreciated. Particularly any pointers to a .deb version that will install for me.

Cheers,

I have a zip file of the git repo which I downloaded last August. It is somewhere between the official 0.9.8 release and the 1.0-alpha. If your git-foo is great the branch id was e19cd7ca49f098c272d4cbd89f743412f67dec3c - but I can't remember how to retrieve it again myself, so PM me and I can email the zip file which you can extract and compile.

You can download Qt 5.4 from https://www.qt.io/download/ and put in it a directory like /opt/qt5.4 and use it from there. I did that for my Debian Jessie system. Get the whole package with qtCreator, and it makes a nice WIMPy system.

Success! Used QT Creator with QT 5.5. Newer versions of QT don't have webkitwidgets library, it has been abandoned. For newer versions, we are told to use the webenginewidgets library (so, replace the reference in the .pro file). I have not tried this yet.

I have read elsewhere that the webkit widgets are a compile time option if you wish to compile the whole of Qt...

But the easier solution is to stick with 5.4 or 5.5 as long as possible. This is the dilemma keeping Mark awake at night. Should he move to the new, probably buggy, web rendering, or abandon Qt for some other toolkit, or pray that someone beats sense into the Qt devs?

Keep in mind that Mint and Debian are usually at least a couple of steps behind the Qt devs.
