Designer Error: qmlpuppet cannot be built
I am getting this error when I open the designer saying that the qmlpuppet cannot be built. This is the main thing I want to use as I am doing development in QML.
I read some threads on here that said I needed to build qmlpuppet so I tried to do that but it failed.
I am running Ubuntu Gnome 14.04.1 with Qt Creator 3.2.0 (opensource) installed to /opt/qtoss.
Here are the commands I ran to try to build qmlpuppet, flying blind (the lack of a how to is very frustrating and there is nothing on google about this or how to fix the error):
qmake -o Makefile qmlpuppet.pro
It looked like it was going OK at the start, building the files with g++, however the last few lines of output looked like this:
container/sharedmemory_qt.cpp: In member function ‘QString QmlDesigner::SharedMemory::errorString() const’:
container/sharedmemory_qt.cpp:115:1: warning: control reaches end of non-void function [-Wreturn-type]
make: *** [sharedmemory_qt.o] Error 1
There were lots of errors about that sharedmemory_qt.cpp file.
I have build-essential installed as well as a few other TCL packages from the distribution repos.
Hi and welcome to devnet,
Looking at the source of both 3.2 and master, sharedmemory_qt.cpp looks clean. What does yours look like at the line 115 ?
Thanks for the quick reply, this is what my sharedmemory_qt.cpp looks like starting at like 111:
// <-- 111
QString SharedMemory::errorString() const
} //<--- 115
} // namespace QmlDesigner
Strange, that looks correct...
Could it be something to do with the packages I have installed on my PC? It doesn't seem that the .run package I downloaded contains all the necessary software because I was able to fix some other errors by installing some Qt packages from the Ubuntu repos.
But so far I am yet to find one that would fix this problem.
Can I build qmlpuppet independently of the install in /opt/qtoss?
I don't known which package you downloaded/installed so I can't really answer.
Yea I might just reinstall the whole OS, it's running pretty shit anyway.
