Good day (o;

I just stumbled upon this project yesterday when I was looking for 
making pyqt5 apps tobe run as an executable for easier distributing...

Installed the pyqtdeploy module as well as other required libs and 
extracted the demo project...

Now when I run I get this error though x11extras are 
installed on my Debian 10.6 system:

Generating the Makefiles...
-recursive' failed returning 3
Info: creating stash file /tmp/tmpfivf8881/.qmake.stash

Reading /tmp/tmpfivf8881/QtX11Extras/
Project ERROR: Unknown module(s) in QT: x11extras
pyqtdeploy-sysroot: execution of 'sip-install' failed: returned exit code 1

Do those two error messages mean anything to someone?

thanks in advance
