There are multiple ways to deploy a Qt 5 application for desktop Linux systems. One is to create native distribution packages that have dependencies on the distribution's Qt installation, another is to create a self-contained application bundle that contains the application and everything the application needs to run that cannot be expected to be present on each target system, and still another is to create an installer for it.

Creating native distribution packages

Different distributions do this differently. Please refer to the particular distribution's developer guidelines.

Creating a standalone application bundle

Deploying a Qt5 application for Linux as a standalone bundle involves bundling it with the necessary Qt components that are needed for the application to run. These can be Qt libraries, Qt plugins, and especially the Qt platform plugin.

A deployment tool is available that automates the prodecures described here and provide an AppImage.

If you want one utility for cross platform deploy use a cqtdeployer tool for deploy qt on linux and windows.
