It looks like a warning. What happens if you click OK?
It states that what you're trying to debug has not been compiled for debug. Has it been compiled for debug?
What are you "trying to fix"?
@JonB after clicking ok, it give this in application output

@saber Go to your kit settings and check whether a debugger is set there. If so, check whether there are any warnings (yellow/red triangle).
@jsulm i don't think it is set
@saber Well, then you need to fix it. Did you install GDB?
@jsulm installed .then?
@saber Restart QtCreator and check whether it detected the debugger. If it did not, add the path manually (usually /usr/bin/gdb).
many many thanks. its found the dbugger and it's working
