Custom plugin fails with 'Plugin Verification Data Mismatch'

  • Hi,
    I want to use this Qt Plugin, but when I drop it into /usr/lib/qt/plugins/designer/, Qt Creator from 'About QT Designer Plugins' moans at me it has a 'Plugin Verification Data Mismatch'. I am using Arch Linux, and these are the steps I took.

    1. cd color_widgets_designer_plugin
    2. qmake ..
    3. make
    4. make install
    5. Drop the resulting into /usr/lib/qt/plugins/designer/

    Thanks, VOT.

    Solved: Plugin didn't use qmake, it used cmake.

    That generally means that you are trying to use a plugin built with a version of Qt (e.g. 5.5) with an application built with a different version (e.g. 5.4)

    So check what version of Qt was used to build Qt Creator and use it to build your plugin.
