Make install path



  • Hello,
    I'm reading the docs about qmake project variables:

    http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-5.0/qtdoc/qmake-variable-reference.html

    but I can't understand how to achieve the following.
    I have a project, say in /home/marco/myproject/src which place the output file into the default directory.
    I want to add a make step (install) to:

    • copy the executables (and qml directory) to /home/marco/myproject/bin
    • copy other files to the same dir

    I tried to add:

    @
    target.files += myotherfiles
    target.path = /home/marco/myproject/bin
    INSTALLS += target
    @

    but it tries to copy into /opt/myproject and of course it can't.
    What is the variable that holds the install path?



  • Partially solved setting:

    @
    target.path = /home/marco/myproject/bin
    target.files += myotherfiles
    @

    BEFORE calling the pri file of the qtquick2applicationviewer (for qml).
    No need to set the INSTALLS variable.

    It works, but it creates a myproject directory aside the bin one. I don't want that. I want the myproject output folder in the default location. Only the "install" directory (bin) should be created in the given path.
