Why can't I find " Maintenance Tool " in Qt5 for Ubuntu 16.04 LTs ?

  • I am trying to install v-play, by Qt's maintenance tool, but I couldn't find it , so is the maintenance tool not available for Ubuntu ?

  • Hi,


    Which version of Qt u are using.
    And where did u download from?.

    Maintainance Tool is available for Ubuntu as well.


  • @kishy-nivas13 Linux distros handle Qt packages differently, they are packaged in the distro's own format and are usually somewhat customized for that distro. If you want to develop with Qt it may be preferable to download the online installer and install an independent Qt version with it, and you will get the maintenance tool, too. It's OK to have both distro's own Qt and manually installed Qt at the same time, you just have to configure it in Creator. At least in the latest Kubuntu the online installer put the maintenance tool and Creator into the Development section of the app launcher desktop menu.
