Standalone Qt Designer installation



  • I develop applications with Netbeans on my Windows notebook for the Raspberry Pi and build them remotely on the Raspberry Pi. Now I also would like to develop some GUIs with Qt. Because of remote building I need neither MinGW nor Qt modules (RPi of course has everything necessary installed), only Qt Designer to edit the Qt Forms.

    How can I install only the Qt Designer (and perhaps QT Linguist and Assistant) or at least with as little additional stuff as possible?

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    AFAIK, they are part of the standard desktop install.



  • Thank you for your anwser.
    Yes they are part of the standard >1 GB installation, of which I need only these 3 applications.

    Technically, you can use Qt Creator for the designer and assistant part however there's currently no equivalent integration for Linguist.

    Netbeans provides such integration in a sense. It launches Qt designer and Qt Linguist for editing Qt Forms and Translations respectively, which in turn launch the Assisntant for documentation. Since this is not what I asked about I try to be more clear:

    How can I install these 3 applications without installing builds, Qt Creator etc. which would waste over 1 GB of disk space?

    If you don't want to install either a MSVC or MinGW Qt, then the only option is to build Qt yourself which will take even more space.

    Otherwise, just install a desktop Qt, extract the applications you want with their dependencies and uninstall the desktop Qt again.

    Ok, but how do I know what dependencies do they have? I wish the installer would be capable of doing that...

    IIRC they are in the bin folder so you already have everything needed. In fact you have everything need for all the applications to run so a bit more than these two requires. So as a quick and dirty solution, you can just keep the bin folder and its content.
