New User trying to use QT on DJI Onboard SDK

  • I'm new to QT and trying to load up DJI Onboard SDK which has some sample make files (

    I have read the QT Getting started so many times and it's just not clicking at all.

    When I load the CMakeLists.txt file, I get a general notification:

    "QT Creator has no Make tools that are required for CMake projects. Please configure at least one"

    I don't get this at all. I'm not sure what it's even asking me to configure.

    It opens up a tab "Build & Configure" and I press ADD, but it asks me for a path. And I have zero idea what to put into this. I have tried so many things (DJI has a subdirectory "MakeFiles" and I've tried selecting a few files, but they don't work. )

    Reading the help / getting started with QT has been no help as it appears that I need to have some knowledge of all this new QT vocabulary installed in my brain that I don't have.

    Alternatively, if there is a "QT beginner tutorial" that you'd recommend, it might save a lot of questions.

    @Tman_AD In QtCreator you need to configure a kit. A kit tells QtCreator which compiler and Qt version to use. See here for more information:
    "I have read the QT Getting started so many times and it's just not clicking at all." - what exactly did you read and what exactly is not clear?
    To me it doesn't look like DJI Onboard SDK is related to Qt. But sure you can use QtCreator to develop, but then you need to configure a kit.

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    To add to @jsulm, what version of Qt did you install ? On what platform ?
