  1. when trying to build I get:
    
    CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake-3.16/Modules/FindQt4.cmake:1314 (message):
      Found unsuitable Qt version "5.12.8" from /usr/bin/qmake, this code
      requires Qt 4.x
    Call Stack (most recent call first):
      cmake/Modules/Geant4InterfaceOptions.cmake:117 (find_package)
      cmake/Modules/G4CMakeMain.cmake:64 (include)
      CMakeLists.txt:50 (include)
    
    not sure if qt4 is still available (i think not very much so), but getting that
    indictates me the build-depends are not correct.
    
    not sure about the license discussion in the ITP, but thank you for packaging geant4, we need it too!

  2. addendum, https://geant4-forum.web.cern.ch/t/geant4-10-6-and-qt/1472/2
    looks like missing b-d

  3. geant4-data distributes two Microsoft Arial fonts: /usr/share/Geant4-10.6.2/fonts/*.ttf
    
    one is even named helvetica.ttf, but that's plain wrong:
    
    $ otfinfo -i /usr/share/Geant4-10.6.2/fonts/helvetica.ttf 
    Family:              Arial
    Subfamily:           Regular
    Full name:           Arial
    PostScript name:     ArialMT
    Version:             MS core font:V2.00
    Unique ID:           Monotype:Arial Regular:Version 1 (Microsoft)
    Trademark:           Arial® Trademark of The Monotype Corporation plc registered in the US Pat & TM Off. and elsewhere.

    $ otfinfo -i /usr/share/Geant4-10.6.2/fonts/arialbd.ttf 
    Family:              Arial
    Subfamily:           Bold
    Full name:           Arial Bold
    PostScript name:     Arial-BoldMT

  4. Thanks for the reviews. Geant4 definitely builds with Qt5, maybe I forgot a b-d in control.

  5. Yep, it's definitely: libqt5opengl5-dev which is missing. I'm using your package on Ubuntu 20.04 and Ubuntu 18.04.
