Qt creator community 5.8 on ubuntu 16.04

  • Hi,

    I'm trying to install Qt creator on Ubuntu. I have set to debug a random example program to see if it works but whatever the program I wanted to debug, I get this erro message :

    22:49:19: Configuration unchanged, skipping qmake step.
    22:49:19: Starting: "/usr/bin/make" 
    g++ -Wl,-rpath,/home/shamery/Qt/5.8/gcc_64/lib -o areachart main.o   -L/home/shamery/Qt/5.8/gcc_64/lib -lQt5Charts -lQt5Widgets -lQt5Gui -lQt5Core -lGL -lpthread

    When executing step "Make"
    22:49:19: Elapsed time: 00:00.

    I precise : I'm on a dual boot with windows 10. (i don't if it can affect) and I have fond any post discuss about this problem on the net..

    Thanks for your help by advance!

    Did you had an update to libdrm recently ?

    pdate to libdrm

    I have made some general updates but I don't know for this specially ,what should I verify ?

  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    AFAIK, drmGetDevice2 drmGetDevices2 are from that library. It's pretty strange that these symbols become suddenly missing. One thing you can try is to add LIBS += -ldrm but it shouldn't be needed.

  • @SGaist Your solution is working... Thank you.
    However I don't get why I need to add this, Qt isn't supposed to make the link by itself ?

    It does, however there might have been a change in the dependencies in which case Qt may not yet be aware of that.
