Mac os issues in visualizing some qt object

  • Dear all,

    I am new in this world, so sorry in advance if I am writing in the wrong place.
    I am facing a strange (at least for me) issue with the visualization of QtObject from Mac OS when I use through ssh a GUI constructed and running on slc6.
    In particular the windows are correctly opened but the q3buttongroups don't appear at all.
    Could you suggest me any solution?
    I already modified my ssh_config to ForwardX11 yes and ForwardX11Trusted yes.

    Thank you in advance!!!

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    Might not be the answer you are looking for but you should first port your code to be full Qt 4 (if going to Qt 5 is not an option).

    The qt3support library was meant as an help for real quick porting to Qt 4 but in the long run, it should not be used anymore.

  • Thank you very much for the answer!!
    It would be great if it was done but unfortunately I am just a user of the GUI so I am not allowed to change it.

    Even if not allowed, sounds like the GUI is the responsibility from another team/colleague, I'd advise to at least ask for the porting of that stuff.

    In between, does it also happen from a linux client ?

    Also, what version of Qt 4 is it ?

  • Sure I may ask but i guess they are really busy during these times :D
    It happens only to Mac OS, linux devices are able to display everything perfectly!!
    The Qt version used to develop the GUI I don't really know what it is, I have a 5.3.2 installed, but also with the previous I am not able to see any result.
    The first time I installed 5.3 I managed to have a correct view of the GUI for one time; I tried to reproduce the situation but it never happened again.

    Thank you for the help!!

    They always are ;) But still, production code should not use porting libraries.

    What version of OS X are you running ?

    If it's running on the remote computer, your host Qt will not be used.
