Qt-creator-2.3.1: install problem



  • Hello,

    I downloaded qt-creator-2.3.1-src.tar.gz and extract it.
    Then I did:
    qmake qtcreator.pro
    make
    make install

    After a while I got the following error:

    install -m 644 -p /home/zvivered/GNU/qt-creator-2.3.1-src/share/doc/qtcreator/qtcreator.qch /share/doc/qtcreator/
    install: cannot stat /home/zvivered/GNU/qt-creator-2.3.1-src/share/doc/qtcreator/qtcreator.qch': No such file or directory make: [install_inst_qch_docs] Error 1 (ignored) install -m 644 -p /home/zvivered/GNU/qt-creator-2.3.1-src/share/doc/qtcreator/qtcreator-dev.qch /share/doc/qtcreator/ install: cannot stat/home/zvivered/GNU/qt-creator-2.3.1-src/share/doc/qtcreator/qtcreator-dev.qch': No such file or directory
    make: [install_inst_dev_qch_docs] Error 1 (ignored)

    What am I doing wrong ?

    Thanks,
    Zvika.

    Try running "make docs" before "make install". Does that fix it?



  • Dear Mr. Farmer,

    'make docs' fixed the problem.
    I think this step should be documented.

    Best regards,
    Zvika.

    Well, make install isn't documented in the first place :) It's primarily meant for Linux package creators (and btw doesn't work on Windows). Most people just use the Qt Creator directly from the build directory. BUt I'll see what I can do regarding documenting it ...



  • Hello,

    My mistake. I'm used to run 'make install' after 'make'
    I did not notice that in this case 'make' is the last step.

    Thanks,
    Zvika.
