Here's how I installed Sigil 0.7.1 on Ubuntu 12.10 (64-bit) These will be slightly different for 32-bit systems.

install build tools:
$ sudo apt-get install build-essential cmake

download & install Qt 5.0.1 for Linux from http://qt-project.org/downloads
$ wget http://releases.qt-project.org/qt5/5.0.1/qt-linux-opensource-5.0.1-x86_64-offline.run
$ chmod +x qt-linux-opensource-5.0.1-x86_64-offline.run
$ sudo ./qt-linux-opensource-5.0.1-x86_64-offline.run


create source directories & get the Sigil source
$ mkdir -p ~/src/Sigil-0.7.1 ~/src/sigil-build
$ cd ~/src/Sigil-0.7.1
$ wget https://sigil.googlecode.com/files/Sigil-0.7.1-Code.zip
$ unzip Sigil-0.7.1-Code.zip


figure out where the Qt cmake files are:
$ find /opt -name Qt5CoreConfig.cmake

tell cmake where to find the Qt installation (based on previous)
$ export CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH=/opt/Qt5.0.1/5.0.1/gcc_64/lib/cmake

follow general instructions in ~/src/Sigil-0.7.1/INSTALL.txt
$ cd ../sigil-build
$ cmake -G "Unix Makefiles" -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release ../Sigil-0.7.1
$ make

(go make some tea, it will take a while to build all the parts)
$ sudo make install

if you try to run sigil now, it will complain that it can't find some Qt shared libraries. I think the best way to solve this is to adjust the sigil.desktop file in /usr/local/share/applications

figure out where the shared libraries are:
$ find /opt -name libQt5Widgets.so.5

edit sigil.desktop
$ gksudo gedit /usr/local/share/applications/sigil.desktop &

change the line
Exec=sigil
to
Exec=env LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/Qt5.0.1/5.0.1/gcc_64/lib /usr/local/bin/sigil %F
(or wherever the last find command gave you) and save

now you should be able to use Nautilus (the file browser) to navigate to /usr/local/share/applications and start sigil from the icon there. You can then pin this to your Unity launcher!

I am running Debian Sid with KDE desktop. I installed Qt5.0.1 from the .run packages here. After making sure it was executable (chmod +x Qt*.run) I ran it as root using the graphical script. By running as root, I was able to install it to /opt/Qt5.0.1 and so keep it out of the way of the Qt4 installed on the system. If you don't run it as root, you can install it somewhere in your home directory, which will probably serve as well.

To tell cmake where it is, you use the following on the command line:

Code:
cmake -G "Unix Makefiles" -DCMAKE_PREFIX_PATH=/opt/Qt5.0.1/5.0.1/gcc/lib/cmake/ -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -DFORCE_BUNDLED_COPIES=1 sigil
where "sigil" is the directory containing the source code, and the pertinent directive to tell cmake where Qt5 is, is "-DCMAKE_PREFIX_PATH=/opt/Qt5.0.1/5.0.1/gcc/lib/cmake/ "

Thank you, St_Albert. I have been bashing my head against the wall trying various permutations of things to no avail, until I saw your post.

The INSTALL.txt file, and the Sigil_User_Guide_0_7_0.epub need to be edited to reflect this.

Thank you again.

Did you try http://code.google.com/p/sigil/wiki/RunningFromSource ?

I don't think there is anything in the guide that refers to building for linux except for the link above. The install.txt file may need to be updated though.

I cannot get the sigil.desktop to execute. I'm probably doing something wrong.

Installed Qt5.0.2 to /opt/Qt5.0.2 but installed Sigil to opt/sigil rather than /usr/local

$ find /opt -name libQt5Widgets.so.5
gives
/opt/Qt5.0.2/5.0.2/gcc/lib/libQt5Widgets.so.5
find: ‘/opt/Qt5.0.2/5.0.2/gcc/examples’: Permission denied
/opt/Qt5.0.2/Tools/QtCreator/lib/qtcreator/libQt5Widgets.so.5

So what command do I use to edit the line Exex=sigil in /opt/sigil/share/applications/sigil.desktop

I'm on Ubuntu 12.04 32 bit system. Installed cmake-2.8.10.2 (built from source) to /opt/cmake.

You might be able to use
Exec=env LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/Qt5.0.2/5.0.2/gcc/lib sigil
(make sure it's Exec=, not Exex=)
but you can use
find /opt/sigil -name sigil -type f
to get the full path to your executable

Thanks for clarifying the code.

It appears my problem lauching Sigil is some other issue as per this thread:
