Qt 5.7 online installer macOS Sierra 10.12.1 path
Hello, this is my first installing Qt SDK on mac. I tried to install in my home directory, but got two problems with path.
The first one was that i have directory with non-ascii(cyrillic) name, and until i didn't renamed it, qmake couldn't find .pro file.
The second problem is more hard to resolve. The path to Qt is "/Volumes/Macintosh HD/Users/distress/Qt/5.7". As you can see, it have one whitespace. So, when i tried to build test project i got message: "no such file or directory: 'HD/Users/distress/Qt/5.7/clang_64/lib'". I found that Makefile has incorrect LIBS path:
"LIBS = $(SUBLIBS) -F/Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/Users/distress/Qt/5.7/clang_64/lib -framework QtCore "
it has two backslashes, it's strange because all other paths have correct one backslash escape for whitespace.
May be somebody had already successfully resolve such problems?
Hi and welcome to devnet,
Not necessarily the answer you are looking for but I usually use System as the name for the main macOS partition which avoids that problem.
@SGaist that's not main partition) (the main is small SSD).
Ofcouse i can create symlink, or mount to path like /usr/local/lib/qt and reinstall, but may be someone have more universal and elegant solution.
In any case, I believe that it is incorrect behavior of Qt, because i use their installer with all default options.
