    I'm using Qt Creator 5.1.1 in Linux x64 System and i have donwload the binary file,the file info is : "Qt 5.1.1 for Linux 64-bit (415 MB)
    Then give the file permission to execute,cliked the file and installed like the Windows...

    by the way,when my first run Qt Creator,i have got the Messager :
    cannot overwrite file /home/username/./config/QtProject/qtcreator/qtversion.xml: Permission denied
    im using Google to got this,
    *sudo chown -R username /home/usrname/./config/QtProject/ *
    it works!

    but still can not change languages,or some other configurations, it makes me confused.

    thank you for your patience !



  • once try to launch the qtcreator from shell
    using 'gksudo'
    and check if language is getting saved or not

    there must be some permission problems



  • Copy QtCreator in a folder where you have write permissions,
    and from QtCreator folder type "./bin/qtcreator -settings settings".
    It will save all the settings in the same folder.
