No such file or directory

  • Qt newbie here--I've installed the source files, but whenever I try to use them, I get loads of errors reading, for instance, QtGui/qwindowdefs.h: no such file or directory.
    The errors seem to be originating from inside the Qt library, so I'm sure I've forgotten to do something simple like add the path to my .pro file, but I'd appreciate a nudge in the right direction!
    It all seems to work when I create a new project, but when I open an existing one and add the necessary lines to the .pro file, it fails.

    I'm running on a Linux x86 platform.

  • @SixFish said in No such file or directory:

    QtGui/qwindowdefs.h: no such file or directory.

    Which version of the Qt , are you using ?

  • Oh, sorry, it's 5.5!

    Hi if new projects works , it seems Qt is installed fine

    So if it complains about #include stuff then maybe its an older project ?
    Like for Qt4?

  • It's a project that uses GTK, but I'm converting it over to Qt.
    I've tried adding Qt += widgets, to no avail.
    And yeah, I'm pretty sure my install is fine, I just don't know what to do to my .pro file to get it to link correctly.

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    Can you show your .pro file ?

  • Sure can, here she is:

    QMAKE_TARGET =desktop

    QT += core gui
    greaterThan(QT_MAJOR_VERSION, 4): QT += widgets

    TEMPLATE = app
    CONFIG += console
    CONFIG -= app_bundle
    CONFIG -= qt

    CONFIG += debug
    CONFIG += link_pkgconfig
    PKGCONFIG += gtkmm-2.4 libdc1394-2

    QMAKE_CFLAGS += -Wall
    QMAKE_CXXFLAGS += -std=c++0x

    QMAKE_CXXFLAGS += -funsigned-char

    DEFINES += ShowLicenseGui

    DEFINES += SocketWriteTimeLog=0

    DEPENDPATH += $$artpaths

    INCLUDEPATH += $$artpaths

    #This variable contains a list of libraries to be linked into the project. You can use the Unix -l (library) and -L (library path) flags and qmake will do the correct thing with these libraries on Windows (namely this means passing the full path of the library to the linker). The only limitation to this is the library must exist, for qmake to find which directory a -l lib lives in.
    #For example:
    #unix:LIBS += -L/usr/local/lib -lmath
    LIBS += -lcupsimage
    LIBS += -lcups

    LIBS += -lgssapi_krb5
    LIBS += -lgnutls
    LIBS += -lz
    LIBS += -lpthread
    LIBS += -lm
    LIBS += -lcrypt
    LIBS += -ldc1394

    I've left out the enormous list of headers and sources for sanity's sake.

    You have CONFIG -= qt, remove that line.

  • Oh, wow, I musta skimmed right over that.
    Thanks, you hero, you!
