QtInstaller framework silent install option



  • I am using QtInstaller to package my applications. I read that QtIFW installers, such as Qt toolkit installer, have a --script option that can read in a "Qs" file for inputs and do a non-interactive approach.

    Is it available to my installer that I packaged using QtInstaller?
    If this is available, does that mean I can fire off my installer without needing a windowing system handy (e.g. I ssh to remote host and not sending X traffic back)?

    thanks

    Yes you can use it via ssh. But you do need a windowing system installed, I think it will fail to run without it (maybe I'm wrong).
