GUI problem (kinda)

  • im new to developing gui applications and new to Qt. i wrote a simple program and it works fine, but when i build and run the application, it does not have that "Ubuntu theme" feel. i know that this is just a cosmetic difference. here is a picture of the application next to the gui design

    ps: i had problems trying to upgrade from qt4 to qt5 and fixed it best i could. im sure my problem has something to do with the settings. happy to join the Qt community

    So you are now on Qt5, right? There were some changes in QStyles for Qt5. I'm not up to speed in that department, but I think "this blog": might help you. In short, try forcing your app to use Cleanlooks or Fusion style (many ways to do that, for testing you can just pass -style cleanlooks to your app in command line).

  • Does it also doesn't work, if you start the program "normal" and not in QtCreator?
    I am only asking, because it could be, that you start your program as root and then, it may happen, that the style guides are not in use.

  • sierdzio: i tried changing the style in option menu of Qt and i used the command line and both dont change the look of the program

    Serenity: the program still looks weird when i run the program outside of Qt

    i dont know if this helps but i have two different qmake files in different folder locations. does qmake matter in terms of the program gui styles?

  • problem solved. tweaked kits and build setting and it looks like it should
