4.8.4 Mac Install problems
Hello, I downloaded the Mac installer for 4.8.2 from http://qt-project.org/downloads today. After the install all the tools seemed to be in place except Qt Creator. I downloaded it separately and installed it. When I run it, there are no kits nor any Qt Versions available. When I follow the instructions to add versions, the sample screens online don't match the screens in this build of Qt Creator (2.6.1).
I'm a bit stuck.
fwiw; I downloaded the windows version on a Windows 7 box and everything ran correctly immediately.
You need to have Xcode and Command Line Tools installed, too (compiler must be there). Then in Kits, QtC should recognise clang/g++ compilers and you just need to add Qt Version (browse to where qmake binary is and select it).
XCode is in along with the command line tools. Qt Creator does find and list all the compilers. When I browse to the folder with qmake /Developer/Tools/Qt or /usr/bin neither of them allows me to select either the folder or qmake itself. (the app stays greyed out, the folders only have "Open" as an option.
Ah yeah, that sometimes happens. I only do work on a Mac when I'm forced to, so I'm not an expert here. Default Qt installation (pre-Qt5) spreads all the data over the HDD. I usually use Qt that I compile myself with -prefix or -developer-build, then it all stays in one place and is recognised by QtC. That is probably not a nice solution for you, though.
I'll try that
