Build QtCreator from source, set installation path [Solved]



  • Hi all,
    I'm trying to build QtCreator from source in Linux.

    To build it I used:
    @
    cd qt-creator-2.4.0-src
    qmake qtcreator.pro
    make
    make install
    @

    but it try to install in /lib/qtcreator/ .

    Ho can I tell qmake to install in /home/luca/qtcreator ?



  • qmake's make install rule uses the INSTALL_ROOT prefix by default, so you need

    make install INSTALL_ROOT=/home/luca/qtcreator

    it will put /lib /bin and /share underneath (in your case, it should actually try to install all three, but to the root directory).
