Qt Eclipse Plugins not working



  • I running Ubuntu and Eclipse(Helios 3.5.2).
    I have followed the instructions to install the Qt (4.6.1) plugins. I can see the plugins in /usr/lib/eclipse/plugins.

    When I do a New Project, I do not get a Qt wizard.

    When I look at the Help Menu:About Eclipse SDK:Installation Details:Plugins, I do not see "Qt Project Plug-in" or "Qt Integration Help Plug-in". (I see these on a friend's working installation)



  • Works now. I went back and purged Eclipse. I then installed Eclipse/Galileo. After that I manually installed Eclipse/Helios in my /opt directory and edited the Eclipse startup script in /usr/bin. I installed the CDT in Helios and then manually installed the Qt plugin.



  • I am new to Eclipse.
    I am planning to install the latest Eclipse (indigo?) CDT and then install Qt plugin.

    First time I tried with eclipse galileo, I failed to get Qt to work.

    Can you tell me why you have to install Eclipse Helios in /opt folder,
    and only after installing Galileo first?

    Why not install Helios without galileo?
    You also mentioned editing the Eclipse startup script in /usr/bin.

    Is there documentation on what to do?.
    I find Eclipse website difficult to navigate.

    WHen you install Qt plugin, how do you tell eclipse where all the Qt files are?

    Is the Qt files in Eclipse/plugin?
    Thanks.



  • Just out of curiosity why use Eclipse (aka slug) in the first place? :P



  • I am looking for a single platform to do various language development. In theory, this would save time learning another IDE.
    I went followed thru a C++ example on Eclipse CDT, and it was pretty experience.

    I do not think Nokia put much effort to making Eclipse-Qt integration seamless. I have seen many folks post plugin installation problem. I hope someone at Nokia read this, and do something about it. Seamless to a Nokia in-house developer may not be a seamless install for people outside.

    I did start to use Qt creator IDE, and it is simple enough.

    By the way, in Qt Creator, I cannot see the results of say for example QDateTime variable where I break. I click on the local variable, but it just show a letter "d".

    Does anyone know why or how to see content of such an object?

    What you have to do is use "debugging helpers":http://doc.qt.nokia.com/qtcreator-snapshot/creator-debugging-helpers.html . There are already debugging helpers for basic Qt classes (including QDateTime AFAIK). Make sure you have debugging helpers enabled under Tools -> Options -> Debugger -> Debugging Helper.



  • It was already enable. I still have the same problem of not being able to see the values of variables like QDateTime.

    hpng: We use the Qt SDK and Qt Creator in-house for Qt-related development.



  • Tobias:

    Yes I am using Qt SDK download with Qt Creator.
    I still cannot see results of say for example QDateTime variable where I break.
    Debugging helpers are already enabled.

    Any clue why I cannot see the values of compound or class variable?
