Description Be 2022-07-25 20:26:23 UTC
Description of problem:
Qt6 packages only ship a single pkgconfig file, /usr/lib64/pkgconfig/Qt6.pc. The rest of the pkgconfig files for each of Qt's libraries are missing.

I have all qt6*-devel packages installed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. sudo dnf install qt6*-devel
2. ls /usr/lib64/pkgconfig/Qt6*.pc

Actual results:
Only Qt6.pc is installed

Expected results:
Qt6.pc plus files for each of Qt's modules are installed (Qt6Core.pc, Qt6Gui.pc...)

Additional info:
Taking a look at the files installed by Arch's qt6 package (, I see the pkgconfig files should be there.

Comment 1 Be 2022-07-26 04:05:04 UTC
It turns out this was not implemented upstream until recently. was merged to the Qt 6.3 branch 2022-04-12. According to Qt 6.3.0 was released 2022-04-12 and Qt 6.3.1 was released 2022-06-14, so pkgconfig file generation was first added in Qt 6.3.1. Fedora is currently shipping Qt 6.3.0. So I think the Qt6 packages need to be updated to resolve this.

Comment 2 Be 2022-07-26 04:13:16 UTC
Indeed, per the discussion on support for generating pkgconfig files was not merged for Qt 6.3.0 and was first released in Qt 6.3.1.

Comment 3 Jan Grulich 2022-07-26 06:31:49 UTC
Yes, it should be available in Qt 6.3.1 which I'm currently working on.
