Correct.  Tmake and Qmake are too different to support at the same
time if you are doing anything non-trivial.

Except that preview 10 has a nasty bug which makes it impossible to
print files containing some figures made with Ipe.  It's good enough
for occasional use,  if you make sure you re-save all figures with a
recent version of Ipe before printing them or sending them to

I have now put a stand-alone version of qmake up at


(This is a backport of qmake for Qt2 made by the OPIE people.)

On Linux, it should compile by saying "make" only.  Before running,
you'll need to set the environment variable QMAKESPEC to the
"mkspecs/linux-g++" directory:

export QMAKESPEC="~/qmake/mkspecs/linux-g++"

(or wherever you've unpacked qmake).

If you try this, please let me know whether it worked for you.
