if the only problem is naming, two short bypass :

  • make hard link to commands : need to be root
  • set a function in the marker's environment, i.e. :

function moc { moc-qt4; }
export -f moc

I didn't test but it could work.

  • For moc and uic, they can be discovered using pkg-config:

poulain@foehn:~$ pkg-config --variable=moc_location QtCore
poulain@foehn:~$ pkg-config --variable=uic_location QtCore

Under Fedora, Qt4 tools installed are suffixed by -qt4. So qmake is known as qmake-qt4, moc as moc-qt4, uic as uic-qt4.

Currently, the configure script stop since it doesn't find qmake, moc, and uic in path, even if they has been installed. A Q&D 'ln -s' is sufficient to get TeXmac compiled.

So, the autotool script should be updated in order to use qmake-qt4, moc-qt4, and uic-qt4 if they are available in the path.
