QT GUI Error



  • Hello, everyone:

    I've recently started using Qt and installed everything. I'm using 2.5.0 for Qt Creator and targetting 4.8.2, but everytime I try to run something with a forms file, I get this error:

    QWSSocket::connectToLocalFile could not connect:: No such file or directory

    It doesn't matter if the form has something or if the project is recently made, I always get the same error, yet I don't get it when making a Qt console application.

    Any insights of what might be going on and how to fix it?

    Thanks in advance and greetings from Costa Rica!



  • I forgot this line of the error:

    No Qt for Embedded Linux server appears to be running.

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    Did you add the -qws option when starting your application ?



  • Hello and thanks for your reply.

    I did what you told me but now it gives me this error:

    QFontDatabase: Cannot find font directory /usr/local/Trolltech/QtEmbedded-4.8.2/lib/fonts - is Qt installed correctly?

    I'm hoping there's a quick fix for this because I couldn't find a precompiled installer (I need this specific version) so I had to download the source and compile it and that took quite a bit of time.

    And you won't, there are no installer for cross-compiled QtEmbedded.

    The fix however is simple: create the directory and copy the fonts from your QtEmbedded build there
