How to run this project !!
This is my first post in Qt forums. :)
I found an excellent open-source project, made with Qt
but as I am using Qt for the first time, I don't know much.
the above is the link to the project.
Can anyone please guide me how to successfully run the project.
Really in need.
Thanks in advance.
Hi @pabitrapadhy, and welcome to the forums :)
git clone email@example.com:andryblack/fontbuilder.git cd fontbuilder/ qmake make ./bin/FontBuilder
Worked for me on Ubuntu 16.04. Would be slightly different on different platforms such as Windows.
What platform are you using?
I am using it on Mac OSX Yosemite.
I have cloned it properly
just wanted to know how to run this
Thanks for help.
just wanted to know how can I generate the tool from it. !!
may be I have not setup the environments and required items correctly.
I would be greatly help, if you could spare some time and send me the run steps and any necessary :)
Hi and welcome to devnet,
The quickest is:
- Clone from git
- Open .pro file with QtCreator
- Click on the Run arrow
Otherwise the instructions are pretty much the same as what @paul-colby wrote.
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:andryblack/fontbuilder.git cd fontbuilder/ ~/Qt/5.7/clang_64/bin/qmake make ./bin/FontBuilder.app/Contents/MacOS/FontBuilder
Replace 5.7 by the adequate value for your Qt version. This also assumes that you have a default Qt installation. Otherwise update the path to qmake to match where it can be found on your system.
Thanks so much for helping out.
I had to figure out some small stuffs.
I builded it successfully.:)
