Installing and setting up for use with cloud 9 ide

  • I am looking for help setting up qt 5.5 with cloud 9 ide. It provides a VM with ubuntu and I tried installing the framework with

    wget, chmod +x, ./

    but I ended up with error:
    QXcbConnection: Could not connect to display

    In any event, I imagine the error is just being caused because I am installing it in a VM, but I don't know how to complete the install or how to set it up for the cloud 9 environment once its installed.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    A VM is not a problem, you can install and do Qt 5 development on e.g. VirtualBox, VMWare or Parallels without any problem.

    However, it's not sure that Cloud9 provides an X server which is needed to use the xcb plugin.

    You should check with the Cloud9 people about that.
