No help documentation for Qt 5.0.2

  • Hi
    I have just built Qt 5.0.2 and when I run assistant there are no help topics.
    I executed the following to build the docs
    mingw32-make docs
    But nothing appears.

    Any help in this matter is appreciated

    In Qt Assistant, click Edit -> Preferences -> Documentation -> Add...

    Browse to <YOUR_QT_ROOT>/doc and select the .qch files

  • Unfortunately no .qch files exist in the doc folder

    error output from make docs command -
    mingw32-make[5]: *** No rule to make target `prepare_docs'. Stop.
    mingw32-make[4]: *** [sub-dbus-prepare_docs] Error 2
    mingw32-make[3]: *** [sub-examples-prepare_docs] Error 2

    What were your configuration options?

  • same is for me here,
    this is what i've done:

    @cd <path>/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-<version>
    ./configure -prefix $PWD/qtbase -opensource -nomake tests
    make -j 4@

    after this, there were no docs,
    also after adding qmake in the qt creator in build and run -> qt versions , there were no examples and demos in qt creator.

    for compiling docs I did this:
    @cd <path>/qt-everywhere-opensource-src
    make docs
    but what I get is this:
    @make: *** No rule to make target `docs'. Stop.

  • ok, this is what I've done.
    removed the Makefile in the root dir of the qt-everywhere-opensource-src
    and then ran qmake
    and then make docs

    it did something and then I saw some new directories under qt-everywhere-opensource-src/qtbase/docs

    but there is no qhp file to be used for generating a qch file

  • same problem to build docs with qt 5.1.0, very annoying ;(

  • buddy, no body here cares about thir problems

    use this:

    downlaod it, extract it, and then, put the documents wherever "qmake -query" says doc files must be.
