Martin,

just tried another clean install of Ubuntu 13.04 64bit with the following installation steps:

In terminal:

# From installation guide
sudo apt-get install g++ g++-4.6 libgl1-mesa-dev libglfw-dev freeglut3-dev libzip-dev
# Additional dependencies for Ubuntu 13
sudo apt-get install libfontconfig1-dev libpng12-dev

I then downloaded the V-Play Linux 64bit Installer, installed 1.4.0 stable (deselected the daily build just to make sure the stable is working) and adapted the v-play.prf file to look like the following, beginning from line 165:

LIBS += -L$$THIRDPARTY_LIBRARY_PATH
LIBS += -lglfw -lGL
LIBS += -lcurl -lfreetype -ljpeg -lxml2
LIBS += -lpng12 -lz -lfontconfig # Added for Ubuntu 13

After that our game templates build successfully and the games are running as intended. So I can’t reproduce any problems with our installation. :)

 

So just to make sure:

  • Have you used the 64bit installer (and not the 32bit)?
  • Which Qt Creator version(s) have you tried? I used the shipped 2.4.1

Thanks,

Alex
