How to show fonts in Welcome plugin?
I have downloaded and installed Qt 5.3.1 on Debian. Everything works fine, I can build my projects as always.
Only thing are the letters in the Welcome plugin. For some reason those are presented as green squares instead of actual text.
libgl1-mesa-dev, liggl1-mesa-dri and libgl1-mesa-glx are installed.
Any ideas what else should be installed? I haven't found a solution yet myself.
Do you mean QtCreator plugin or your own plugin?
I mean the QtCreator plugin.
I just came across some bug report from debian earlier this year.
From the description my problem might have something to do with qtquick2.
Only that report mentioned the qt from the repositories, while I have downloaded Qt from the website.
When I get home, I will start QtCreator from the console to see if there is some usefull information.
UPDATE: I've just started QtCreator from the console, but there is no additional information.
Someone any thoughts about this?
Could you post a picture of the broken Welcome page.
When I first installed Qt, everything looked normal.
When I start qtcreator as root, everything also looks normal.
So there seems to be nothing missing. Perhaps some user setting which I have to adjust?
Try to stop qtcreator, move $HOME/.config/QtProject to somewhere and start qtcreator again.
If the picture will stay the same then it is some system/user configuration issue, not related to qtcreator.
I did what you asked and it worked at first. But when I click on the examples button, al text is changed into squares again.
But I have saved both configurations, so I can compare them.
In QtCreator.ini, if WelcomeTab=0 (Projects), everything is fine.
If WelcomeTab=1 (Examples) or WelcomeTab=2 (Tutorials), the text changes in squares.
When I change the value back to 0 or when I close QtCreator with the Projects tab selected, all is normal again.
That being said, before removing the directory, the text remained changed. But the list of recent files was much longer. This seems to be related.
This weekend I reopened the Movie Example, which was already in my home directory, and now there are only green squares again, even if WelcomeTab=0.
I agree thats it's possibly a system/user configuration issue, but to find the cause, it would be helpfull to know if ther is something specific that QtCreator does/changes when the Examples button or Tutorials button is clicked or when for instance the Movie example is opened.
I know that Welcome page rely on OpenGL. Have you tried to qtcreator from terminal. Are there any messages?
Yep, I did (see my first post at the top for the libraries).
I’ve started QtCreator from the console, but there came no additional information.
This however could be expected if it is an user configuration problem.
Found this "discussion":http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lib.qt.devel/14372
Try the suggestions from the post.
One more option is to install the last "snapshot":http://download.qt-project.org/snapshots/qtcreator/3.2.0-rc1/latest/ of QtCreator 3.2-rc1
I will try both options when I get home.
Last evening I started a new project, instead of clicking on the last session, and suddenly everything looked normal again. ;-)
