LibQt5Quick.a missing from Qt 5.2.0 binary OS X / Clang x64 distribution ?

  • Trying to build an example project on OS X 10.9.1, I get:

    bq. :-1: error: No rule to make target /Users/rebar/Qt/5.2.0/clang_64/lib/libQt5Quick.a', needed'. Stop.

    Indeed, libQt5Quick doesn't seem to be present in clang_64. I just installed using the web installer. I've double-checked with the maintenance tool, and tried using its package manager to remove and redownload 5.2.0. Is Quick 2 not supported on OS X, is the compiled library not included, is this a bug of some sort, or did I miss something?

    Did a search, couldn't find anything. Apologies if this is covered elsewhere.

  • Did you solve this?

    I'm having the same problem.

  • Most likely a configuration problem in your project, all downloads only provide Qt dynamic libraries (as frameworks on Mac). You want to link against QtQuick.framework not libQt5Quick.a.

  • Yeah I'm getting the same problem. The previous RC version worked fine.
    Now I can't compile any of the examples.

    I see that by default the QT Creator tries to build the iOS examples, is this how it should be ?
    When I load the maroon example from the Creator, it loads this project:


    But when I try to for example to run the 'maroon' example, I get this:

    11:39:07: Running steps for project maroon...
    11:39:07: Configuration unchanged, skipping qmake step.
    11:39:07: Starting: "/usr/bin/make"

    I can see that the actual library exists in


    But for some reason QT Creator tries to link to the clang_64 version .. is there some environment variable or setting that I have to change ? I just removed my old QT5.2.0RC1 installation manually beforing installing the release version.
