HELP please : :-1: erreur : cannot find -lGL

  • Hello everybody,

    I've a problem compiling my Qt programs.
    Each time I try to compile I get this message : ":-1: erreur : cannot find -lGL"

    I'm running on a Linux Mint 16 (32bits)
    My compiler is a GCC 4.8.1

    I've downloaded this website's downloadable QtCreator 3.1.2 and installed it following the Linux's usual installation way. It ran without error.
    I got that message when I tried to compile my first program (Window with push button) .
    I've then tried to uninstall and reinstall QtCreator, just in case something was missing. It was useless.

    Can someone help me fixing this problem ?
    Thank a lot.
