    I’ve installed the newest version of the Qt Creator like here:
    But I don’t know how to configure it to work with V-Play.

    I tried to specify the compiler like in the old version but it says “No compiler can build code for this Qt-Version”.

    And I need to configure a “kit” in the new Qt-Creator…

    An installer which comes with the new Qt-Creator would be great,

    or a tutorial how to configure it!

    Hi lqscope,

    you are right, a tutorial abou this would be good!

    Meanwhile, you can do the following steps (for Windows, Mac & Linux are similar):

    1. Add a Qt version manually and point it to <V-PlaySDK>\Desktop\Qt\4.8.1\mingw\bin\qmake.exe
    2. Add the MinGW compiler manually by choosing the following compiler path: <V-PlaySDK>\mingw\bin\mingw32-g++.exe
    3. You now can add a manual Kit and name it e.g. “Qt 4.8.1 MinGW”, and select the manually added Qt version from step 1 and the compiler of step2

    Please let me know if you have any further problems.

    Cheers, Chris




    thank you very much.

    You could add this to the documentation :)

    You are right, we’ll add it to the next daily build version of the docs!

    Cheers, Chris





    there is another problem when upgrading qtcreator on linux 64bit: the symlink ./Desktop/Qt/4.8.1/gcc/mkspecs/default points to “linux-g++-64” while in ./Qt/4.8.1/gcc/mkspecs/features/v-play.prf “linux-g++” is tested –> directories are not set correctly.


    Possible solutions are to symlink to linux-g++ in the mkspecs directory or to manually override by adding -spec linux-g++ to the kit. It would be nice if you could adapt the *.prfs…

    Thanks Thomas!

    I currently dont have a 64bit linux machine available – could you confirm if you change the

    • line 7 from”linux-g++” to “linux-g++|linux-g++-64”
    • line 17 from “macx|win32|linux-g++” to “macx|win32|linux-g++|linux-g++-64”
    • and in line 149 from “linux-g++” to “linux-g++|linux-g++-64”

    If that works, I will change the prf files so they are available with the next update.

    Cheers, Chris



    Hi Chris,


    surprisingly it doesn’t work! Now I get these linker errors:

    /usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /home/thomske/V-PlaySDK/Desktop/Qt/4.8.1/gcc/../../../V-PlaySDK/lib/third_party/libcurl.a when searching for -lcurl
    /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lcurl
    /usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /home/thomske/V-PlaySDK/Desktop/Qt/4.8.1/gcc/../../../V-PlaySDK/lib/third_party/libfreetype.a when searching for -lfreetype
    /usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /home/thomske/V-PlaySDK/Desktop/Qt/4.8.1/gcc/../../../V-PlaySDK/lib/third_party/libjpeg.a when searching for -ljpeg
    /usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /home/thomske/V-PlaySDK/Desktop/Qt/4.8.1/gcc/../../../V-PlaySDK/lib/third_party/libxml2.a when searching for -lxml2
    /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lxml2
    /usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /home/thomske/V-PlaySDK/Desktop/Qt/4.8.1/gcc/../../../V-PlaySDK/lib/third_party/ when searching for -lfmodex
    /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lfmodex
    collect2: ld returned 1 exit status




    SOLVED: It works after lines 53, 153 and 169 are also treated like above…

    Great, thanks for letting us know Thomas! The new prf will be available with the next daily build.

    Cheers, Chris




    trying to use QtCreator 3.0. on ubuntu 13.10  Added 4.8.1 qmake but when run qmake on the project got:

    ie none of the path-es are set correctly

    how to fix this?

    Also, how to switch to daily updates?
