libQt5core.so.5: cannot open shared object file



  • Hello everyone,

    I have an application written and compiled in Qt Creator. It does run on Linux and work as intented on my own computer with installed Qt SDK.

    I want to move the application to another computer/server with Linux OS and run it. But I get an error message:

    "...error while loading shared libraries: libQt5Core.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory..."

    How can I solve this problem? In Windows I could add some DLL files to bin folder of my application und run it. Is there a similar approach for Linux OS?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello,

    You can, see the relevant Linux deploy page in the docs.
    Usually, I'd prefer to "require" the user to install Qt 5 from their distro's repository though.

    Kind regards.
