Installing Eric4

Eric4 is more involved to install than SPE.

Install SIT

python configure.py
make
sudo make install

Install PyQT
ftp http://www.riverbankcomputing.co.uk/static/Downloads/PyQt4/PyQt-mac-gpl-4.4.3.tar.gz
python configure.py
make
sudo make install

Install QScintilla
ftp http://www.riverbankcomputing.co.uk/static/Downloads/QScintilla2/QScintilla-gpl-2.3.tar.gz
cd Qt4
qmake qscintilla.pro
make
sudo make install
Now make the Qsci module
cd ../python
python configure.py
make
sudo make install

Now install Eric
sudo python install.py

  2. Hi Rupesh,

    sorry but I don't work on an XP machine anymore, so I can't help you there.

  3. command qmake qcsintilla.pro

    creates qscintill2.xcodeproj file and does not creates Makefile. Hence I cannot run make. But I opened this project in XCode and built it with XCode. I got the build/Release/libqscintilla2.dylib

    how should I behave instead of install utility myself further? )

    Thank you for your reply in advance.
