Cannot start QTCreator 5.2.1
Ramon last edited by
I tried installing QT Creator 5.2.1 (http://download.qt-project.org/official_releases/qt/5.2/5.2.1/qt-opensource-linux-x86-5.2.1.run) and towards the end of installation I opted for 'Launch QT Creator' and pressed Finish button. Then I got this error in terminal:
This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "xcb".
Available platform plugins are: eglfs, linuxfb, minimal, minimalegl, offscreen, xcb.
Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.@
Please help. Thanks.

Chances are you need to install whatever package supplies libxcb on your distribution. Run 'ldd' on the installed file ".../plugins/platforms/libqxcb.so" and look for unfound libraries.
