    Are you by any chance running these application directly from the console rather than from Qt Creator ?

  • @SGaist
    yes i am running them by the help of console instead of Qt Creator.
    Is there any problem if we run the applications in the console
    Please suggest me

    Thanks in advance

    Qt Creator modifies your environment locally so that you are sure your application finds and use the correct set of Qt libraries. Calling your application directly on the command line bypasses that so your application is currently not finding the Qt libraries. Have a look at the Linux deployment guide to see how to write a shell script that will do that
