Fail to launch Qt Creator 2.7.0 on ubuntu 12.10

  • Hi guys
    I followed the guide to setup the dev environment, and failed to lauch qt creator.
    In Command Terminal I type the command line: qtcreator
    I am given the error message: Segmentation fault (core dumped)
    and if I type the command: sudo qtcreator
    given the error message:
    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.

    BTW: my ubuntu is upgrade from 12.04 to 12.10.
    I am trouble in this error, I can not go on the tutorial.
    Your reply is very appreciated.

    Please do not run creator as root/Admin. It works very well as a normal user and there is no need for the additional privileges. Even if you want to debug a application that needs root, you can run that as root while keeping creater by setting up remote debugging for root@localhost.

    Please report a bug in ubuntu: They packaged everything up and made sure it works in ubuntu. If it does not, I am sure they want to know about the issue and fix it. Since I do not know what and how they packaged I can not help.

    PS: Qt Creator 2.7.0 is not even released yet. We are aware that there are issues, but it should be pretty stable already. I am not aware of start-up crashes;-)

  • Thanks for your help, I have send a report to Ubuntu 12.10.
