Hi all,

I am trying to compile version 1.1.0 on ubuntu 14.04 laptop. I have Qt5.3.

I find so many error in compilation that I start wondering if the tar.gz uploaded in the web-site is the right one!

First, the make process couldn't find the file chessx_de.qm in the directory /i18n. I looked at it and there is no such file, but chessx_de.ts, so I modified the file resource.h to find that.


This issue has existed for a long time. Just create an empty file with the name. I reported this issue. Here's the reply:

Hello Louis,

you can simply touch all non-existing files or create arbitrary files by whatever means, they will be overwritten by the build process.
i.e.,

touch i18n/chessx_de.qm
touch i18n/chessx_fr.qm
touch i18n/chessx_da.qm

The latter file is needed in case you get the latest sources from svn



Then I started again the compilation, but this time I receive the following error

In file included from src/quazip/quazip.h:31:0,
                 from src/gui/mainwindow.cpp:38:
src/quazip/zip.h:56:18: fatal error: zlib.h: No such file or directory
 #include <zlib.h>
                  ^
compilation terminated.
make: *** [obj_rel/mainwindow.o] Error 1


and, in fact, I looked for that file through all the src but it's not anywhere.

For the missing zlib header, try this at a command line: sudo apt-get install zlib1g-dev
