Qt Creator (from SDK 1.1.4) with Qt 4.8 libs?

  • This seems like it ought to be very easy. I have SDK 1.1.4 installed (to $HOME/QtSDK), and I (separately) have Qt 4.8 libraries installed (to /Developer/Tools/Qt). This is on OSX. So my current copy of Qt Creator is the one that ships in the SDK (v2.4.0).

    What I want to do is add build settings so that I can have Qt Creator perform a build using the production version of Qt 4.8.0 rather than the RC version.

    I tried adding a Qt version in the "Build&Run/Qt Versions" dialog as a manual configuration. When I hit the "Add" button it doesn't allow me to select anything in /Developer/Tools/Qt as a path to qmake. Note that the qmake in that directory is a symlink to /usr/bin/qmake-4.8. Unfortunately, it also won't let me select /usr/bin/qmake-4.8.

    What is the correct way to do this?


  • I moved this to the tools forum, as it seems to be more an issue of Qt Creator than the installation process itself.

    Hopefully Tobias will catch up here :-)

    Is there really a qmake in /Developer/Tools/Qt? Isen't that usually in a bin subfolder on the Mac? I am no expert there;-)
