I had some problems on my computer, and I need to format it. I made a backup of all archives of ROS, and when I reinstall the ROS I copied and past the backup on the workspace of ROS, but I don't no if I made this corretly, because I am with this errors:

-- Using these message generators: gencpp;geneus;genlisp;gennodejs;genpy qmake: could not find a Qt installation of '' CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake-3.10/Modules/FindQt4.cmake:1320 (message): Found unsuitable Qt version "" from NOTFOUND, this code requires Qt 4.x Call Stack (most recent call first):

You copied you workspace but you didn't install old dependencies so that somethings is not work properly. Before the format your computer has Qt 4.x and you can compile your application with this pack but now you did not install this pack. I researched at google and get this link maybe it can work for you. (I am not sure it is work be carefull) Also, you can check your ROS with new work space. If the empty workspace compile your ROS is work fine only you don't have some dependincies.
