Qt 5.4 Linux deployment app could not find or load the Qt platform plugin xcb ? ( ldd is happy )

  • I installed Qt5.4 in an Ubuntu 10.04 LTS development VM. I can build and run aps fine in the VM.

    The problem is I cannot deploy to another Ubuntu 10.04 LTS machine.

    • I copied the Qt5.4 shared libs to /opt/lib/
    • I copied the /plugins/platform/ folder to /opt/lib/
    • I copied the qt54-hello test app to /opt/lib/
    • ldd has no complaints about either the qt54-hello app or /plugins/platforms/libqxcb.so

    ldd /opt/lib/qt54-hello

    How can I determine what is missing if ldd is happy?

    Thanks in advance,


  • Never mind. I must have missed copying some shared library or other file that ldd does not detect. I am not sure really what I had missed.

    I do know that after I installed the qt-opensource-linux-x86-5.4.0-beta.run on my target, then set LD_LIBRARY_PATH to the install directory of the Qt shared libs, then all was good!

    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/etc/Qt5.4.0/5.4/gcc/lib

    Now that I know it can work on this embedded Linux Atom machine, I will work on deploying only what is needed.
