# [SOLVED]get a linux terminal compilation command to work with Qt

• hi,
i have a file that i want to compile using Qt , because i want to use the debugger .
i compile the file using :
@
g++ ./hello-world.cpp `pkg-config --libs --cflags gegl-0.2` -o hello-world
@

The output of [quote] pkg-config --libs --cflags gegl-0.2 [/quote] is:

@
-pthread -I/usr/include/gegl-0.2 -I/usr/include/babl-0.1 -I/usr/include/glib-2.0 -I/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/glib-2.0/include -Wl,--export-dynamic -pthread -lgegl-0.2 -lgmodule-2.0 -lgio-2.0 -lbabl-0.1 -lm -lgobject-2.0 -lglib-2.0
@

How can i configure Qt to get it to compile the above ?
I tried in the .pro file to add :
@
QMAKE_CXXFLAGS += `pkg-config --libs --cflags gegl-0.2`
@
didn't work .

• if you have a good reason and need to add custom other libraries then you should check the following:
if you need to specify exactly where location of those libs are use:
//also you can use INCLUDEPATH@

if not! why don't you use the default debug variables like the ones you already get with QMAKE_CXXFLAGS_DEBUG ?
Why not mention what went wrong like error etc?

• sorry for not posting the erro .
but this is the solution (thank you echostorm) :

QMAKE_CXXFLAGS += `pkg-config --libs --cflags gegl-0.2`
