Help on Qt project settings for linux and windows.

  • Hi all,

    I'm new to Qt and i'm told to read up more on Qt.
    But what does it mean if i'm told this:
    "learn about the qt project settings for linux and windows"?

    Anyone has any idea what that could mean?

    Thank you so much for your time.

  • I have never seen a complete documentation about the project settings. It might be best to checkout everything that you can configure there and read the embedded help.

  • Everything there? Where is it that you're referring to?

    Hmm.. Actually, i'm using a computer right now which doesnt allow me to install anything, so i don't have a compiler nor can i install anything, i'm basically using the internet and read up as much as i can, but i have no idea where to start. And maybe like u said, there might not be a complete documentation as i've tried googling it and nothing comes up. So i'm pretty lost.

  • There aren't particular settings on Windows or Linux or Mac and others.
    There are only some features to have a look.
    For example, if you want to write a cross platform application, is a good idea to use mingw as compiler under Windows. In this mode you will sure that the sources will builded on others architecture without any problem.

    Wellcome into Qt world. I love it very much!

  • Maybe also you read about older Qt versions.

    For example, previously, if you wanted to use C++11 features like auto etc. in your Qt app, then in your .pro file you had to use different settings for Mac, Linux and Windows.
    But starting with Qt version 5.2 it's just "CONFIG + = c++11" for all platforms :-)
