I downloaded the source code using
    svn checkout http://svn.gis-lab.info/qgis2google2 qgis2google2

Then, on Macintosh (OS version 10.5.8) I get

build[91]% cmake ../qgis2google2

-- Detecting CXX compiler ABI info - done
CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:28 (QT4_WRAP_UI):
   Unknown CMake command "QT4_WRAP_UI".

The CMake error looks as if it is a problem in 
the CMakeLists.txt file, rather than a problem 
with missing dependencies in my system, but it's 
hard for me to know, since I'm unfamiliar with 

I have installed QT 4.5.3 from a binary download at

I installed cmake from a binary download for Mac at

build[100]% cmake --version
cmake version 2.6-patch 4

Suggestions would be welcome!


I have no idea what "the usual way it's done for 
other plugins" is. Although I have generally been 
successful following instructions to "configure, 
make, make install" for a variety of open source 
projects, I am not a QGis plugin developer.
