Hi everyone,

I am trying to build Wireshark on a Mac and have successfully installed Qt 6.5.3, run the tools/macos-setup-brew.sh script and run the cmake -G Ninja .. in the build directory which is a subdirectory of the source directory. When I try to run Ninja to build Wireshark, I get the following error message and the build then stops:

2.1.1. Build environment setup

Qt 6 needs the "Qt 5 Compatibility Module" to be installed as well.

You didn't mention the extra Qt piece in your setup steps.

Thank you for your response.

When installing Qt I installed Qt 6.5.3 for macOS, Ot 5 Compatibility Module and Qt Debug Information Files under the Qt dropdown as well as Qt Multimedia under the Additional Libraries dropdown. Is there anything else I should have possibly installed? I also set the Qt installation directory in the environment using:

WIRESHARK_QT6_PREFIX_PATH=~/Qt/6.5.3/macosexport WIRESHARK_QT6_PREFIX_PATH

Is there anything I am missing on that front?

I'm not a Mac developer and don't want to steer you down bad paths. Will have to wait for a Mac person to come along.

Thank you. I was able to solve it. Realised I needed to export the package configuration path export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/Cellar/qt@5/5.15.12/lib/pkgconfig/
