Custom Executable problem when running.
I want to create a GUI in Qt creator for a rqt plugin in ROS.
so to get myself familiarise, i clone a package from https://github.com/lucasw/rqt_mypkg/tree/master/rqt_example_cpp .
I am able to build this. However, when i press the run icon(the green play icon), a pop up screen of "custom executable" appears.
in the pop up, there are three blanks:
Command line arguments:
Can someone please guide me on where to get the executable files and what to fill up the rest of the blanks.
I have browsed through forums and could not figure it out.
i found this answer in one of the forums but i dont know how to create this.
"You need to write a client executable (or use an existing executable) to use your library and specify the path in this dialog box."
I am using ubuntu 14.04 , Qtcreator 5.7.
Any help would be appreciated by this noob. Thank you
The selected project([https://github.com/lucasw/rqt_mypkg/tree/master/rqt_example_cpp](link url) ) is plugin . so you will get generated as a dll. If you want to run this as a executable. You have to change the make file (.pro ).
Other wise follow the below link to run directly @ section 6.2
