Thanks for the tip on how to find all the packages from a single source

I just couldn't find it. I was looking through the files beginning with
'python3-pyqt5', or 'python-pyqt5' so I missed the three (all of which I
want) whose names begin with 'pyqt5' without the 'python' prefix.

Now that QtDesigner is running I can look at the rest of the build

the docs on Sourceforge these should all be included in the upstream
package. Has Debian split them off somewhere and not listed it as a
Depends, or Recommends?
$ apt-file search pyuic5
To see what binary packages are built from the same source package
1. Get the source package name:
$ apt-cache show python3-pyqt5 | grep ^Source:
2. Get all binary packages associated with it (the "tr" is for better
$ apt-cache showsrc pyqt5 | grep Binary: | tr ',' '\n'
The reason Debian doesn't have a single binary package is that you
don't actually need these tools to _use_ PyQt5, only to develop it.
(Similarly to C/C++ development, where there also are separate
development packages.) This way you can select what you want to
