Cross compilation error with QtCreator [Yocto Image] in Ubuntu 14

  • Qt Creator is giving this library error:

    Based on this Question, I think my problem is that QMAKE_SPEC and QMAKE_XSPEC under Qt Versions should be showing linux-oe-g++ (instead of linux-g++) but I don't know how to change that. Have I missed any steps?

    I've bitbaked Qt5 SDK, I've also sourced the environment in "/opt/Qt5.8.0/Tools/QtCreator/bin/qtcreator.sh" by adding this at the top:

    source /opt/fsl-imx-x11/4.1.15-2.0.1/environment-setup-cortexa7hf-neon-poky-linux-gnueabi

    and configured the following options under Debuggers, Compilers & Qt Versions respectively:


    These are the screenshots just in case.

    I'd appreciate any help.

  • The solution is here in case anyone is also wondering.
