I tried to install Wireshark to my CentOS machine (offline, no internet connection). I extracted the tar file, then run ./configure and got the following error:

checking for Qt5Core - version >= 5.0.0... no checking for QtCore - version >= 4.7.0... no

configure: error: Qt is not available

I then downloaded Qt 5.7.0 and installed on my machine and run configure again but still get the same error message.

Can you please help me resolve the issue?

What version of Centos and what version of source are you using (or git tag\branch)?

I am running CentOS 6.3 and the Wireshark version I tried to install was 2.0.5

"downloaded Qt 5.7.0 and installed on my machine" but were these the development packages?

Yes, Jaap's comment is most likely the problem: you need the development packages too. According to the shell script tools/ these are the packages you'll need to compile with Qt:

qt-devel gcc-c++ qt5-qtbase-devel qt5-qtmultimedia-devel
