QtCreator doesn’t want me to use SVN

  • Hello everyone,

    i've browsed through forums to find solution for my problem but i didn't find any. My problem is that QtCreator doesn't show me svn option in Tools tab. I have set svn in version control and i've imported my project with QtCreator from svn address.

    I'm using ubuntu,Qt Creator 3.3.0 (opensource), Based on Qt 5.4.0 (GCC 4.6.1, 64 bit)
    svn 1.6.17.

    I would be glad for any suggestions.

  • One more thing, Qt Creator was showing the Git option which i was using in different program (Android studio).

    I removed Git, QtCreator removed Git option but SVN is still missing. I also tried to reimport the project but it didn't help either.

  • Go to Help->About Plugins and check if the SVN plugin is enabled. If not, enable it and restart QtCreator.

    Sorry for not editing my first post.

    Do you have another idea? Should i try to reinstall qt completely?

    Ok i tried reinstalling qt and subversion but nothing worked. Finally i solved the problem by downloading older version of Qt (5.0.1) where everything works. Don't know what was wrong in 5.4. version.

  • Same problem here since I upgraded to Qt Creator 3.3.0 (Ubuntu 12.04, Qt creator 3.3.0, svn 1.6.17).
    This is not related to the Qt version but to Qt Creator itself.
    From the creator 3.3.0 release notes there:
    we can see:

    • Dropped support for Subversion versions earlier than 1.7.0
      This says it all, I think.
      I do not know why the support of previous SVN version was dropped but it looks like it is.

    So there are 4 options left:
    1- Update your SVN to >= 1.7
    2- Downgrade Creator
    3- Do your SVN jobs outside Creator
    4- Search a workaround

    For my part, I will choose option 4 first since I have the creator 3.3.0 sources at hand. I will investigate the svn plugin to see what is going on there.

    It seems that going forward does not always make things better than before - at least not for everyone :-)

  • Replying to myself here...
    There were too many changes in the SVN plugin between 3.2 and 3.3.
    I tried to revert some changes with no success.

    So I took the first option: upgrade subversion to 1.7.
    This was very easy. All works well and the Subversion functionality in Creator reappeared automagically after the upgrade.
    I have to say the subversion upgrade to 1.7 was very easy after I searched the net for 'Ubuntu 12.04 subversion 1.7'.
    Simply added a PPA, apt-get update, apt-get upgrade, svn upgrade in my checkouts and that's it. No trouble at all.
    So the svn upgrade is the most easy and reliable solution to this problem.
