Can't switch compiler in QT Creator 5.02



  • Using QT Creator 5.02 for Raspberry PI cross compilation, and it appears that QT creator will use the compiler from the mkspecs/qws/qmake.conf which I used to build the QT for my device. This appears to happen regardless of the compiler I have defined in my kit.

    The problem is, I suspect a problem with that compiler, and would like to try a different one, but can't seem to find a way to do this.

    I've gone so far as to delete ~/.config/QtProject directory (thus erasing my entire QT creator configuration) and starting from scratch.

    There must be a way to force it to use the correct compiler.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Yeap, qmake makes the final decision on which compiler will be used. All creator can do is provide hints...

    Try modifying the mkspec directly.
