Macdeployqt and .dylib copy



  • Hello,

    I'm trying deployment of Qt app on Mac OS X.

    macdeployqt sounds to be a great tool to populate the .app bundle and a .dmg image. However, macdeployqt reports errors.

    Here is the output of macdeployqt

    @
    make: Entering directory `/Users/user/Sources/test-build-desktop-Desktop_Qt_4_8_1_for_GCC__Qt_SDK__Release'
    macdeployqt test.app -dmg

    What's strange is that the .dylib are both present in the /Developer and in the test.app/ path and the app runs fine.

    Do you know what I'm doing wrong?

    Thanks

    I think this is the key line:
    @
    WARNING: Perhaps macdeployqt was already used on "test.app" ?
    @



  • Thanks :-) I should have read much more carefully the messages.

    Indeed, when starting from a fresh .app, the message is not shown.

    There is a -verbose level adjuster, setting it to 0 make macqtdeploy to not show those messages, however I 'm fearing about missing other errors that could occur later.

    Yeah, I would warn against setting it to 0. macdeployqt does not stop on errors, so it's very easy to miss it when something goes wrong.
