Cannot add compiler to Qt Creator 4.14.2 on MacOS 11.2.3



  • Hello all,

    I'm trying to add a GCC compiler to the Preferences->Kits->Compilers tab. When I click Add, the menu of different compilers is shown. However, when I select any of the compilers in the list no sub-menu appears. This happens no matter what compiler I choose (e.g. Clang, GCC, ICC). I have the same version installed on Windows 10 and this feature functions correctly.

    Is this a bug or some weird configuration issue?

    Thanks,
    Kevin

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    How did you install these compilers ?

    Note that only the clang version provided by Xcode is officially supported by Qt.



  • Thank you for the welcome.

    I installed GCC with MacPorts

    Note that only the clang version provided by Xcode is officially supported by Qt.

    I don't think that this is correct. The options to add different compilers is there. Also, I have added different compilers to Qt Creator for many years. Again, I can add a different compiler with the Windows version and I have added different compilers in previous version of Qt Creator on previous MacOS versions.

    Thanks,
    Kevin

    You misunderstood me. Qt Creator supports using different compilers, my point is: when using Qt itself, only the compilers from Apple are supported. Others may work, but you are on your own.

    From the looks of it, you indeed have a bug going on, did you already had it with a prior version of Qt Creator in the 4.14 series ?

    Ah, got it. Thank you.

    This is the first version in the 4.14 series that I have installed so I'm not sure if it exists in prior versions.

    I think I will create a bug report. Thank you for your help.

    Check 4.15 before opening an issue.
