Error when executing step "Make"

  • I am running on Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS with QT 5.5.1. I upgraded everything on the board that I'm working on (Nitrogen 6) and I'm not sure if it upgraded something that is no longer compatible. This is the error I am getting. I looked at other forums that mentioned installing g++ or g++-5, but none of that works.

    14:58:36: Running steps for project Hello_World...
    14:58:36: Configuration unchanged, skipping qmake step.

    Error while building deploying project Hello_World (kit: GccKit)
    When executing step "Make"

    Also, when I run it from the terminal, I get this warning:
    Warning: EGL sugggested using X Visual ID ee (RGB888) for EGL config 1 (RGB444),
    but this is incompatible

    Anybody have any ideas?

    Hi @user614,


    Seems you have set up somewhere to use distributed compiling with distcc.

    Is this intended? Seems like the distcc compiler is not installed. Please check your Kit settings in Tools -> Options which compiler is selected.


  • I have GCC as my compiler. The path is /usr/lib/distcc/g++
    and I DO have distcc compiler downloaded to my system. I'm not sure why it's giving me that error.

    If you're not using distcc currently, you should maybe uninstall it and try to build again. Or at least check whether there's anything configured for it.

    So I got it to work, but only because I went to the make file and changed the CXX directory to the appropriate directory of g++-5. This is a temporary fix, but how do I make sure that the other files do not have that directory when it makes a make file?

    Is it in your PATH environment variable ?
