Qt Creator removing string before a space for SDK



  • I'm trying to use Qt Creator which is installed on an hard disk named "Macintosh HD" which is not the boot drive. The path to the SDK therefore is: "Volumes/Macintosh HD/Users/user/Qt/5.5/clang_64/lib" but when I try to build and run an empty project I get the following error: "no such file or directory: 'HD/Users/user/Qt/5.5/clang_64/lib'". The part before the space is gone. Is this known bug? How can I fix it?

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    It should rather be /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/

    Did you setup the kit and Qt version yourself ?



  • @SGaist I did create a new kit with the new Qt version by selecting the appropriate path. But When I chose the file, I can see that the backslash is missing and there is no way to enter it manually (under Preferences -> Qt Versions).

    Then you should check the bug report system to see if it's something known, if not please consider creating a new report.
