Trouble installing the QWT plugin

  • Hi,

    I downloaded the qwt-6.1.2 and installed it per instructions in install.docx.

    This goes fine but I don't know how to install it as a plugin and install its documentation since there is no qwt-6.1.2.qch file anywhere!!

    Any help appreciated!!

    I had installed qwt 6.1.2 a while ago. However, I do not think that there is a install.docx file available.
    Anyway which compiler and OS do you have?

    Out of personal experience it is better to use also qwt mailing list for qwt issues. Uwe has been answering here as well, but his main channel seems to be the qwt mailing list.

  • I am using QtCreator 3.5.1 in MAX OS 10.11.2.
    There IS a file called install.docx, the file that IS NOT present is the documentation file that could be loaded by QtCreator to provide help for the QWT framework (which should be called qwt-6.1.2.qch ).
    I have the QWT framework installed in /usr/local/qwt-6.1.2/lib, but when I build and try to run one of the QWT examples I get:

    dyld: Library not loaded: qwt.framework/Versions/6/qwt
    Referenced from: /Users/juandent/Programs/C++/qwt-6.1.2/examples/bin/
    Reason: image not found

    Where can I tell the bar chart project to look for the qwt.framework?

    Where did you download qwt from ?

    Sorry my experience with QWT is mostly on Windows and I compiled it for linux. I never tried to integrate into Qt creator.

    I have checked my qwt 6.1.2 folder and there is no install.docx (DOCX), but an install.dox (DOX). Therefore I am wondering where you got the files from. However, these files might be different for MAC OS.

    Anyway, as noted already above, at least I would also try in parallel with the qwt mailing list. There are quite a number of people following and may give you an answer.
