    I'm wondering why you include the zlib 3rd party library in the source tree. Is this library modified, compared to the Gailly and Adler source other than some cosmetic differences I saw ? Would your software run with the original library linked as a shared object ?

    Thank you for your attention and happy new year !

    Yes it can work with the original package.
    Moreover with Linux distributions the original package is used by default.

    zlib is included mostly for Windows users to make the whole bundle is complete: only QT libs are required to build UGENE.

    Hello, thanks for your reply.

    I was wondering if Debian GNU/Linux packages would be feasible. I have searched for such packages and did not find any. Are you aware of any official package for Debian ? I may start doing that packaging if there are no such packages already somewhere.

    There is an Ubuntu package of UGENE: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ugene

    I think Debian installer should be almost the same.

    We have no 'debian' package now because the release cycle of Debian is longer then the overall project age and it's not possible for us having more or less up-to-date version in the stable branch.So we provided binary package that must work on any Linux distribution: http://ugene.unipro.ru/download.html
    However moving to Debian 'testing' would also be a good progress :)

    Compile with Qt Creator

    In file included from ../../../ugene-1.9.0/src/ugenem/src/main.cpp:14:
    ../../../ugene-1.9.0/src/ugenem/src/SendReportDialog.h:22: fatal error: ../_tmp/ui/ui_SendReportDialog.h: Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden
    compilation terminated.

    Problem with this code line:

    #include "../_tmp/ui/ui_SendReportDialog.h"

    Hi, half of the UGENE team uses QT Creator tool to develop UGENE and we cann't reproduce the issue. So this issue looks like a local misconfiguration

    Could you check that the project can be successfully compiled from the shell with 'qmake -r / make' commands first?
