Installing Qt4 on Ubuntu and integrating with Eclipse

First install qt4 on Ubuntu

eclipse -clean

Now go to new..Project..qt

You will get an error when it starts
Click on open preferences and setup the paths as follows
After this it will ask you that a rebuild is necessary, you should say yes to this. It will also ask for changing perspective, say yes if you please :) You're done enjoy!
