hi

i tried to compile qtpass from the commandline but i get

qmake: could not exec '/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt4/bin/qmake': No such file or directory

i think the ubuntu's have qt5 qmake now so using the qt4 path is a no go.

I'll have to add to the documentation on installing that on some systems there is no qmake anymore.
There might be qmake-qt4 and qmake-qt5 installed.

Could you try rm Makefile && qmake-qt5

turns out it was more a problem with me/my distro. its using qtchooser to decide which qt version to use (i seemed to have both installed)

by default, ubuntu 15.04 comes with qt4 libs but no qmake. at some point qt5-qmake was installed to my system. yet qtchooser still goes with qt4, for which no qmake binary exists.

to fix this i ran 'qmake -qt5' and this invoked the right version.
