cannot find bluetooth module - again



  • It seem every time I download new copy of QtCreator I am missing Bluetooth module. No problem, but ... last time I installed
    sudo apt install qtconnectivity5-dev
    and I am still missing bluetooth module.

    Any suggestions ??
    ( Yes I did try to find FIRST time I posted similar question , but no joy , cannot "search for it " )





  • @LeLev Looks like using Bluetooth in Qt 6 is risky.
    Perhaps 6.2 solved the issue ?
    Yet another iffy update ?

    I really do not get what is going on .
    This is part of "system" After "update".

    I must be running Qt 5 and somehow my "btscanner " is Qt 6 ?

    I guess I will start fresh with Qt6 and see what develops.

    Qt Bluetooth is not yet available in Qt 6: https://www.qt.io/blog/add-on-support-in-qt-6.0-and-beyond

    Stick with Qt 5 if you want to use Bluetooth.

    This information tells us which version of Qt was used to build Qt Creator.

    It is not the version of Qt you use to build you own projects. That is determined by the kit(s) that you select for your project.



  • @JKSH Good idea to stick with Qt 5 Downloaded Qt 6 - the latest and the greatest - using off line installer and Qt Creator won't even start.
    In the process found "Check for updates" and it won't recognize Qt 6 either.
    I am not sure how newcomers start using QtCreator - the numbering scheme of QT /QtCreator / components etc, is not a good "advertisement" for anything related to "Q" . Simple "download QtCreator" is like downhill slalom - too many "options " and the actual "download the file" is way down the page . Silly.

    OK
    This is my current still running / limping but no bluetooth .
    Unless I read it wrong - the current version of Qt Creator is 6.0.2 and it supposedly has bluetooth fixed.

    Can anybody confirm that for me ?
    I do not need another "do not run 6 if you want bluetooth advisory" , just confirm this post yes or no for each item, please.

    It looks there is NO online installer for 6.0.2
    https://www.qt.io/offline-installers

    Also if I am running 6.0,.1 it never updates to 6.0.2.

    BTW
    If these versions are so important it would be nice if the numbers show in ONE PLACE - likes "system status" .
