I've never tried this myself, so I can't help much. But here are some rough steps:

1. Install the Qt binary package from
2. Install PyQt4
      - there are no binaries for Mac, you will need to compile it
      - make sure you are configuring it with the version of Python that is used by bzr, not Apple's 2.3
3. Download the source code from and unpack it to ~/.bazaar/plugins/qbzr

Just confirming: The above suggestion from Lukáš Lalinský worked great for me...

It seems that the PyQt4 URL has changed to:

Other than that, the instructions worked for me too!

I'm having the following issue on Mac OSX 10.5 Intel upon calling 'bzr qlog':

bzr: ERROR: QBzr require at least PyQt 4.1 and Qt 4.2 to run. Please check your install

I installed PyQT4 and QT4.5. I also did a: 'python > python build > python install'

Anyone have this problem?

Will appreciate your help.

In order to install PyQt, you need to have SIP installed.
1) download and install QT4.x

2) get SIP from
$> python -d /Library/Python/2.5/site-packages
$> make
$> sudo make install

3) get PyQT from
$> python -q </path/to/Qt/root>/bin/qmake -d /Library/Python/2.5/site-packages
$> make
$> sudo make install

Hope this helps to get qbzr working
