QT5 on Raspberry Pi - No QTCreator?

  • Hi!

    I'm quite new to linux and building qt.
    I have tried to follow the guides on this site.

    I first I tried to build it on the raspberry pi

    and I have also tried to crosscomplie it using another computer.

    I think it's been built OK both times (not many error etc), but I cannot find QTCreator.
    according to the tutorials, QTCreator should be located in
    /usr/local/qt5/bin after I do the following:

    • cd opt/qt5/qtbase/
    • ./configure -v -opengl es2 -device linux-rasp-pi-g++ -device-option CROSS_COMPILE=/usr/bin/ -opensource -confirm-license -optimized-qmake -reduce-relocations -reduce-exports -release -qt-pcre -make libs -prefix /usr/local/qt5
      -sudo make
      -sudo make install

    But the only files located in /usr/local/qt5/bin are:
    "moc, qdbuscpp2xml, qdbusxml2cpp, qdoc, qmake, rcc,, uic"

    Is there anyone who knows what I may do wrong?

  • Is QTCreator not included in the qt5 source that is downloaded?
    Maybe I need to download the Qtcreator source aswell and build it with qmake?

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    You guessed right, Qt Creator is not part of Qt's sources, it's another product build on top of it. You have to download it separately.

    Depending on your need, you should consider using Qt Creator on your desktop and cross-compile your application before deploying it to your RaspberryPi.

    Happy coding
