[solved] Qt creator can't find opengl headers or I'm missing a package

  • Hi! Every time I try to open up Qt Creator I get an error that says: qt creator failed to create opengl context for format qsurfaceformat. I assume I'm either missing a library or I'm having some sort of linking error. I'm running Arch Linux, i3wm, and have a Nvidia graphics card.

    Can anybody help point me in the right place?

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    Can you post the exact error ?

    Starting from the command line might also give you additional hints

  • This is going to be really weird, but I shutdown my computer last night and it works now? So problem solved apparently!
