I can't open qtcreator in ubuntu
I have a problem... I can not open my qt creator app. I click two times but nothing happens. I already reinstall qt creator but it doesn't help. Maybe somebody had same problem and can help me.
My softwere: Ubuntu 20.04
I try to install qtcreator with Qt 6
Hi and welcome to devnet,
Use a terminal and start Qt Creator from there, you should get some more information about what is going wrong.
How did you install Qt Creator ?
@SGaist Can You tell me what should i do to start Qt Creator from treminal? To install Qt using special Qt app (i downloaded it qt website).
Search for the Terminal application, go to the folder where you installed Qt Creator and start it.
What is your level of proficiency with Linux ?
Command 'qtcreator' not found, but can be installed with:
sudo apt install qtcreator
I have been using ubuntu for 2months
To execute an application from its containing folder use
qt.qpa.plugin: Could not load the Qt platform plugin "xcb" in "" even though it was found.
This application failed to start because no Qt platform plugin could be initialized. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.
Available platform plugins are: eglfs, linuxfb, minimal, minimalegl, offscreen, vnc, xcb.
Aborted (memory dump)
Start Qt Creator with the QT_DEBUG_PLUGINS environment variable set to 1. It will tell you what made the loading failed.
ok, but how can i do that? In trminal?
