    Lightbulb compile mySQL plugin - mysql_config not found

    Dear all,
    I have to add mySQL / MariaDB support in an old 5.15.2 installation. As explained in https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/sql-driver.html#qmysql I have to compile the plugin myself. The problem is, that the qmake step does not recognize the mariaDB installation:
    Qt Code:
    1. user:/opt/Qt/5.15.2/Src/qtbase/src/plugins/sqldrivers$ qmake -- MYSQL_INCDIR="/usr/include/mariadb" MYSQL_LIBDIR="/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu"
    2.  
    3. Running configuration tests...
    4. Done running configuration tests.
    5.  
    6. Configure summary:
    7.  
    8. Qt Sql Drivers:
    9. DB2 (IBM) .............................. no
    10. InterBase .............................. no
    11. MySql .................................. no
    12. OCI (Oracle) ........................... no
    13. ODBC ................................... no
    14. PostgreSQL ............................. no
    15. SQLite2 ................................ no
    16. SQLite ................................. yes
    17. Using system provided SQLite ......... no
    18. TDS (Sybase) ........................... no
    19.  
    20. Qt is now configured for building. Just run 'make'.
    21. Once everything is built, you must run 'make install'.
    22. Qt will be installed into '/opt/Qt/5.15.2/gcc_64'.

    Same result if I try
    Qt Code:
    1. qmake -- MYSQL_PREFIX=/usr/include/mariadb
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 
    . I am quite sure that mariaDB IS installed:
    Qt Code:
    1. user:/opt/Qt/5.15.2/Src/qtbase/src/plugins/sqldrivers$ ls /usr/include/mariadb/mysql*
    2. /usr/include/mariadb/mysql_com.h /usr/include/mariadb/mysqld_error.h /usr/include/mariadb/mysql.h /usr/include/mariadb/mysql_version.h
    3.  
    4. /usr/include/mariadb/mysql:
    5. client_plugin.h plugin_auth_common.h plugin_auth.h
    6. user:/opt/Qt/5.15.2/Src/qtbase/src/plugins/sqldrivers$ ls /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libmysql*
    7. /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libmysqlclient.so.21 /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libmysqlclient.so.21.2.31 /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libmysqlservices.a

    It seems that qmake does not find any of the config-tests as config.log says - pay attention to line 8, 11, ... which says mysql_config not found.

    Qt Code:
    1. Command line:
    2. Global lib dirs: [/home/qt/openssl-1.1.1g/lib] [/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-linux-gnu/9 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu /usr/lib /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu /lib]

    I already removed the sources and re-installed them using the Maintenance tool. Did not help.
    1. Where should these tests be located?
    2. Can I force the mySQL build somehow?
    3. I think the include path has to point to mysql.h - correct?


    Any hint highly welcome.

    Hi, can you execute mysql_config directly from a command line?
    On my openSUSE system it is part of the libmariadb-devel package, maybe you are simply missing some package?

    Good hint, thanks.
    On ubuntu 20.04 the package seem be called libmariadb-dev. So yes, libmariadb-dev and libmariadbclient-dev are installed.
    Where is mysql_config on your system? Somehow I can't find it at all...


    Added after 7 minutes:


    UPDATE:
    A very ugly (although working) workaround is to tweak the mysql.pro in the mysql subfolder.
    I removed the QMAKE_USE += mysql and added INCLUDEPATH and LIBS pointing to the appropriate places. And viola it compiles, installs and is found at runtime.
    Still I would be highly interested in a clean solution.

    Hi,

    on my system it's in /usr/bin/mysql_config
    According to https://packages.ubuntu.com/search?s...s=mysql_config
    it should be part of libmysqlclient-dev on Ubuntu 20.04 (or libmariadb-dev-compat).
