Qt Creator and Clearcase do not play nicely.

  • I'm having a problem working with both Qt Creator (version 3.1.2) and clearcase (version 8.0) on linux RedHat EL6.

    When I attempt to create a new project from within Qt Creator, the new directory is created, but is not added to clearcase. Then, when the file is created, it cannot be added to clearcase because its directry is "Not a vob object."

    New directories can only be added to clearcase using the "cleartool mkdir ..." command. Existing directories cannot be added.

    I've tried creating the directory in clearcase first, before creating the Qt project, but QtCreator will not let me create a new project in an existing directory.

    Both tools seem to insist on being the creator of a new directory.

    Is this a bug, or am I doing something wrong?

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    Good question, I'd recommend asking this on the qt-creator IRC channel you'll be able to talk with qt-creator devs. the qt-creator mailing list is also an option where you'll find Qt Creator's developers/maintainers. This forum is more user oriented
