"make install" does not work out-of-the-box in Qt Creator example projects



  • On Linux, in Qt Creator 5.8:

    File -> New File or Project
    Accept all defaults
    Add "make install" as an additional step in the build settings
    Does not work

    It is a convention that make install should work. Please change the example projects that come with Qt Creator so that make install works out-of-the-box without having to fiddle around. Thanks!

    @probono "Does not work" isn't a problem description.
    You should say what exactly you did and what did not work (errors/warnings?).
