No examples for QT Creator in Linux Mint installation . . .

I used the Linux Mint (Maya) Synaptic Package Manager to install qt4-designer, qt4-dev-tools, qt4-linguist-tools, qt4-qmake, qt-sdk, qt4-qmlviewer, and qtcreator.
However, when I open Qt-Creator and click on "Demos and Examples", in the Welcome widow, there are no examples. What have I missed?
No idea. Maybe the packages did not install the examples? Or they did not put them into the place creator expects them to be?
Try to install package qt4-doc or qt5-doc. I installed group qt on Arch Linux and it was missing the examples too, but by default it does not installs qt doc, which contains all examples.
Does someone have a real answer to this? I have same issue. What I notice is I am root, the examples are there and buildable. If I logomn as my normal user, I cannot get the examples...how to fix this?
First, go get your humility you forgot. "real answer?".
Second, don't use root.
Third, when you install qt doc package, it is installed at /usr/share/doc/qt/examples. (I think this is the path, I'm on OS X now). Go to this folder as normal user and copy the example you want and paste it to your home folder (/home/noobuser).
This is the real answer. If you don't understand now, I can make a step-by-step of how to compile a example for you. =)
Hmmm very funny...this is the the "real answer"
Its gets tiring seeing answers over and over about "just do this" and it never works...yes I know...there are > N ways to skin something.
And yes using root is not right. thanks..
Next time, add a little bit of humility and you can go far. Otherwise, your life will be full of "how to do? This doesn't work... cry cry cry".
Did you look at the post I sent or just respond with this?
Does what was said in the post work?
Ill look at your posts so I can get examples of humilty or do I need to google that?

I had the same problem on Linux Mint 17.2. This did the trick for me:
sudo apt-get install qtbase5-examples qtbase5-doc-html
