I use the Qt Framework to develop portable software for Windows and Linux. You can find my software on sourceforge. This post is going to record the installation instructions for Linux and Windows.
Linux Mint 17
I use Linux Mint 17 at this point and the installation differs slightly from the installation that I found on the net. See below.
Primary development of my software is done on Windows 7 and then the sources are moved to Linux to be compiled there.
