New install on Ubuntu 12.10 gives errors

  • I installed Qt 5.0.1 from offline installer. No errors were reported and Qt was installed in /opt/Qt5.0.1

    When attempting to run QtCreator several problems were encountered.

    First at least five errors were generated conserning permissions to modify the user profile scripts in .config/QtProject/QtCreator/devices.xml ... etc.

    So I tried to run it as su ...
    $ sudo /opt/Qt5.0.1/Tools/QtCreator/bin/qtcreator
    [sudo] password for ken:
    Qt at-spi: error getting the accessibility dbus address: "Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken."
    Accessibility DBus not found. Falling back to session bus.

    Something did not happen correctly on install. Any suggestions?

  • Were you able to actually run Creator? If it only outputs warnings on the command line, it's probably fine. If it crashes, run it in gdb to get a backtrace and report a bug.

  • Yes Creator runs normally - but after a considerable amount of time waiting for it to appear.

    The application output shown above is after exiting the Creator. As you can see there is no application error output other than shown.

    I am thinking the install has not set up user permissions correctly to run QtCreator from /opt
