Yes, sorry. I did that and ended up getting further errors.
I ended up installing Ubuntu LTS on VirtualBox and followed the Linux tutorial and ran into further errors, but finally got it to build and load the project into Qt Creator.
I also had to perform this command in order for the build to succeed
sudo apt-get install lsb-core
I think several of my issues were due to installing things (CMake, GCC, etc) in the wrong directory, root vs. src vs. src/Firmware.
