[SOLVED] Qt Quick designer crash Qt Creator

  • I'm running QtCreator 3.0.1 on Kubuntu 14.04 x64 with KDELibs 4.13 and Qt version 4.8.6, and when I try to open a .qml file (any file, also the default 'Hello Word' from wizard) in the editor there are no problem, but when I clik the Design icon the QtCreator application closes automatically.
    Thanks in advance for any suggestions...

    Run Qt Creator from command line and see if there are any errors reported. Also, please try with Qt Creator 3.1.

    You seem to be trying to open a file that is using QtQuick 2, which is not available in Qt 4. However, the creator should definitely not be crashing! Please try updating Qt Creator to the newest version.

  • QtCreator version 3.0.1 I have installed is from Moun Discover standard QtCreator installation. I found this "Qt Creator bug report": which suggests installation the ubuntu-sdk package.
    ...before I try to follow this suggestion then I will try to install version 3.1, even though I do not know how to do it from the package manager Moun !

    Download from here: "link": It is a precompiled, binary installer, and includes an uninstaller, so it will not pollute your environment.

  • After installing ubuntu-sdk package the designer load .qml files but show this error:

    The executable of the QML Puppet process (/usr/bin/qmlpuppet) cannot be found. Check your installation. QML Puppet is a process which runs in the background to render the items.

    Switch .qml files to QtQuick 2.2 import and project to 5.2 Kit, the QML Puppet process (/usr/bin/qml2puppet) is found and no error is show.

    This is understandable - QtQuick 1 and 2 are completely separate beasts and require different designer rendering helpers.
