installer from I did not know that you had to open the fly-out menu
beside the Qt item. Inside this fly-out menu is where you can select the version of Qt that you want to install with QtCreator. Once I discovered this menu, I was able to select the 5.10.0 version of Qt mentioned in the wiki and things started to work.

Obviously the compiled newrpl-ui executable code will not work on my non-virtualbox
ubuntu 16.04 because the Qt5 libraries on my desktop Ubuntu are 5.1.1 not 5.10.0
so does anyone know if running the installer on
my Desktop non-virtualbox computer will break anything, or will it just work.
My hope is that it will update Qt5 to version 5.10.0 without breaking things but that
might be risky so I won't attempt it unless someone has already confirmed that it works.

My apologies if that wasn't clear, I promise to write that part in more detail in the wiki, it's strange but the Qt installer doesn't choose the library for you, you have to explicitly select it otherwise you end up without one.
By the way, newRPL does not require the latest version, it should compile fine with any version. In theory you could select the 5.1 in the qt installer and you should be able to move your compiled binary out of the VM, but I have never tested this, and I think you had enough headaches already.

Regarding the last point: The Qt installer doesn't replace your system's Qt, it will install the new version alongside it (in /usr/local/lib, while the system libs are in /usr/lib), then you'll need to be careful in your "Kit" (in QtCreator) to make sure the one you installed is the one selected for compilation, you should see both in the drop-down box.

PS: Done, I added a better explanation to the wiki. Sorry you had to be the guinea pig, and many thanks for not giving up on newRPL. Now have fun!

First I tried it with Qt-5.1.1 expressly because it would be in sync with the Qt on my existing Desktop computer. But ALAS that failed. I had dozens of compiler errors with Qt-5.1.1 so after that failure, I started with a fresh virtualbox image and repeated it all over again to install Qt-5.10.0 as instructed in the wiki. With that version of Qt it did not fail.
