Qt Creator boost/gil issues

  • Hi, I am dealing with a strange problem, I am trying to include boost/gil library but when compiling the project i got stangr issues.
    .pro file:

    QT -= gui
    CONFIG += c++11 console
    CONFIG -= app_bundle
    # The following define makes your compiler emit warnings if you use
    # any feature of Qt which as been marked deprecated (the exact warnings
    # depend on your compiler). Please consult the documentation of the
    # deprecated API in order to know how to port your code away from it.
    # You can also make your code fail to compile if you use deprecated APIs.
    # In order to do so, uncomment the following line.
    # You can also select to disable deprecated APIs only up to a certain version of Qt.
    #DEFINES += QT_DISABLE_DEPRECATED_BEFORE=0x060000    # disables all the APIs deprecated before Qt 6.0.0
    SOURCES += main.cpp


    #include <QCoreApplication>
    #include <boost/gil/extension/io/jpeg_io.hpp>
    int main(int argc, char *argv[])
        QCoreApplication a(argc, argv);
        boost::gil::rgb8c_planar_view_t view =
        boost::gil::planar_rgb_view(3, 4, nullptr,nullptr,nullptr, 4);
        boost::gil::jpeg_write_view("out.jpg", view);
        return a.exec();

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    What version of Qt are you using ?
    On what platform ?
    Which compiler ?
    What version of boost gil ?
    How did you install all of this ?

  • Hello,
    QMake version 3.1
    Using Qt version 5.9.5 in /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu
    Ubuntu 18.04
    Boost version: 1.65.1

    everything was installed with sudo apt install <package_name>

    The compiler and its version are missing.

  • How to check it in QtCreator? because when I went to Tools > Options > Build & Run > Compilers I got a huge list with GCC, GCC 7 and Clang

    @kyeiv The compiler is set in your Kit.

    @kyeiv As you can see the you're using compiler named GCC (64bit). Now go to compilers tab and look for that compiler there.

  • As you can see i have got here 2 of them 0_1564994746073_Screenshot from 2019-08-05 10-44-31.png 0_1564994752756_Screenshot from 2019-08-05 10-43-46.png

    @kyeiv They reference the same compiler.
    To find out the exact version do

    /usr/bin/gcc -v

  • Using built-in specs.
