Autotools plugin to build project - issue

  • Has ANYONE been able to successfully use the autotools plugin for a reasonably complex auto build project. Don't get me wrong - its a great plugin. But I think it still needs work. Or perhaps I am doing something wrong.

    To be more exact i am trying to build the FileZilla project [svn co filezilla].
    I download the source code, and open QT Creator -> Open File or Project ->
    Select the defaults and voila the project opens up.

    Right off the bat I notice that the src folder is shown but not the "resources" or "include" project. It leads me to think that the plugin or QT will not include directories that dont contain at least one .cpp file.

    Other than that - quite surprisingly - I was able to build and debug the project ! [I was NOT able to do it with the Linux Eclipse CDT IDE]. That is just awesome.

    BUT the fact that I cant see those directories (mentioned above) in QT creator is hampering my ability to make changes to the project. Anyone has an idea how to make those folders part of the project??


  • Moderators

    Are all the files listed in the shown? Then the plugin is ok and the build system is incomplete (or better: Does not list files not essential to build). Otherwise you should file a "bug report":

  • I opened the bug report. Yes, The contains the header file names.
