Mac - qt 5.5 - theme - how to run qtcreator command in terminal
Hi all, I'm new to Qt and I have tried to set up a theme.
I'm using Qt 5.5 for Mac OS X El Capitan.
So far it is partial set up, as the project explorer and console are keeping the original settings.
I tried this theme:
Yet a the phase "- And run
qtcreator -color "#2b2b2b" -stylesheet /path/to/dracula.css" I am unable to do it.
I tried running it from terminal, but it states "-bash: qtcreator: command not found".
An example of how to give arguments to Qt start.. but I need specifics, as again I don't know where to give the arguments.
Any help or links are much appreciated.

Did you add the directory where the qtcreator binary is located to your path variable?
What is the output of
If this returns nothing, then try to run it with
/path/to/qtcreator -color "#2b2b2b" -stylesheet /path/to/dracula.css
I really appreciate your time.
In terminal 'which qtcreator' returns nothing.
I have copied the .css file in '.config/QtProject/qtcreator/styles'.
The issue is that I cannot find where/how to set arguments to Qt when it starts.
I have a coupe of days through the Qt documentation and google-ing. I cannot provide screen shots here in the forum..
Should I change that in the .ini file? If so, then where I need to do it.
I'm not sure if I give the correct path here (it's dragged to the terminal so there are no spelling mistakes):
Hs-iMac:~ hibonda$ /Users/hibonda/Qt/QtCreator.app -color "#2b2b2b" -stylesheet /Users/hibonda/.config/QtProject/qtcreator/styles/dracula.css
-bash: /Users/hibonda/Qt/QtCreator.app: is a directory
I am running the program from QtCreator.app, therefore I don't know what am I doing wrong here..
Hi and welcome to devnet,
The path to the actually binary is
Qt\ Creator.app/Contents/MacOS/Qt\ Creator
Wow! that was the path! very accurate!
So for anyone else seeking for this :
/Users/yourName/Qt/QtCreator.app/Contents/MacOS/Qt\ Creator -color "#2b2b2b" -stylesheet /Users/yourName/.config/QtProject/qtcreator/styles/dracula.css
This is the correct path (to be run in terminal).
