Run in terminal with remote device conf in QtCreator

  • Hi there,

    I have configured a project with deployment to remote linux device. When I select at the "Run Configuration" to run on a remote device the run in terminal option disappears. I guess that this is of course by design and it's not a bug.

    Is there any rational explanation why this option shouldn't be available? Technically it seems simple: a console terminal initiating a ssh connection to the remote device could run the application and the IDE would take care for the attachment.

    Anyhow, do you have in mind a more convenient workaround than debugging by attaching the application manually?

    For the rationals behind that decision, you should rather ask on the Qt Creator mailing list. You'll find there Qt Creator's developers/maintainers.
