[Solved] Qt 5.3.2 QMYSQL driver not loaded

  • hi !
    I've installed in a pc with Mint 17 Qt 5.3.2 with the installer. File libqsqlmysql.so has been generated during installation and it is in the right place. But when I try to connect with mysql db i receive a message "QMYSQL driver not loaded". So, from the source I've generated a new libqsqlmysql.so; the command ldd libqsqlmysql.so has given this output:

    linux-gate.so.1 => (0xb77ab000)
    libmysqlclient.so.18 => /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libmysqlclient.so.18 (0xb7454000)

    /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0xb77ac000)
    libicudata.so.52 => /home/achille/Qt/5.3/gcc/lib/libicudata.so.52 (0xb5074000)
    libpcre.so.3 => /lib/i386-linux-gnu/libpcre.so.3 (0xb5035000)
    I moved the new libqsqlmysql.so in the right place but doesn't work.
    I don't know why it's so difficult and what I have to do; in other pc, with Qt 4.8 it was very very easy to connect with a mysqldb.
    Thanks in advance for helping

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    Did you check the error message from QSqlDatabase ?

  • thank you for your answer;
    ok,if I use libqsqlmysql.so from default installation I received this message:

    @QSqlDatabase: QMYSQL driver not loaded
    QSqlDatabase: available drivers: QSQLITE QMYSQL QMYSQL3 QPSQL QPSQL7
    otherwise, if I use libqsqlmysql.so generated from source no message, but db is not connected.

  • Sorry, I was so stupid.... I din't create a test db correctly ....
    just only need build libqsqlmysql.so from mysql.pro (qmake, make) in
    and move it from
    in which is created to
    Good bye !
