Building Scopy on Linux

Installing the dependencies

Before building Scopy on Linux system, you need to make sure all the requirements are installed.

Install a Qt 5 version (>5.12) using an online or offline installer from the official Qt downloads page.

Install dependencies

    git clone
This will fetch the latest sources from GitHub to a “scopy” directory.

This following command will use system Qt version

or if you want to use a custom version of Qt (the one you just installed) - scopy/CI/appveyor/ <path_to_qt_> for example:
    scopy/CI/appveyor/ /home/Adi/Qt/5.15.0/gcc_64

This should install all of the dependencies required to build Scopy.

Building Scopy

If you are using a custom Qt version set -DCMAKE_PREFIX_PATH to the <Qt installation folder>/lib/cmake. If you are using the system version don't set the -DCMAKE_PREFIX_PATH.

    cd scopy
    mkdir build && cd build
    cmake -DCMAKE_PREFIX_PATH=/home/adi/Qt/5.15.0/gcc_64/lib/cmake ../
If everything goes well, the output should be “Configuring done” and “Generating done”.

Now build the project:

And run Scopy:

Alternatively you can open QtCreator from the Qt folder. Open, configure and build the project.

Return to Scopy Main Page
