Important: Please read the Qt Code of Conduct - https://forum.qt.io/topic/113070/qt-code-of-conduct

where is the documentation?



  • I installed Qt 5.9.1 and 5.8.0 ising the online installer for Mac OS X. There is a documentation folder filled with qdocconf files but no html directory and no documentation available to QtCreator. What the heck?

    @drhalftone What are the contents of the doc directory?

    I usually build my qt from source in which case I always need to do make docs && make install_docs but if you used the installer it should have just worked.

    @drhalftone I think you're looking in the wrong location. I'm not sure how the Qt directory structure on MacOS is. On Linux it is like:

    .
    ├── 5.5
    ├── 5.7
    │   └── gcc_64
    ├── 5.8
    │   └── gcc_64
    ├── dist
    ├── Docs
    │   ├── Qt-5.5
    │   ├── Qt-5.6
    │   ├── Qt-5.7
    │   ├── Qt-5.8
    │   └── QtWebView
    ├── Examples
    │   ├── Qt-5.5
    │   ├── Qt-5.6
    │   ├── Qt-5.7
    │   ├── Qt-5.8
    │   └── QtWebView
    ├── Extras
    │   ├── QtCanvas3D
    │   └── QtWebView
    ├── Licenses
    └── Tools
        └── QtCreator
    

    Documentation is inside Docs/Qt_VERSION, not inside Qt_VERSION/doc.



  • It is supposed to just install, but its not.



  • The only thing inside Docs is QtWebView. There are no directories for the various installed version of Qt.
