No auto-detect of Desktop Qt 5.7.0 GCC 64bit



  • Linux mint 18.
    Under Build & Run, Qt versions:
    No auto-detect of Desktop qt 5.7.0 gcc 64bit. Where to find or any other suggestions?



  • Hi,

    Qt Creator will only auto detect installed Qt Version(s) if they're in your system path variable. If you compiled Qt by yourself you can manually add it or include the path where you installed Qt (specified during configuring) in your system environment path variable.

    Hope that helps.

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    Just a small correction to @bludger, don't alter your system's environment variable when adding a new version of a library that can be found on your system. You're going to get unforeseen side-effects.
