Compiling a PDF Viewer with Qt Creator
AlecTaylor last edited by
I'd like to compile a PDF viewer using Qt Creator.
The project I'm working on will involve displaying more information about PDFs, and embedding (annotating) some extra information into them.
I will probably use the PoDoFo or Hummus libraries for this, in the Wt environment.
As a stepping-stone to the final project, I would like to use Qt to create some initial prototypes.
Meaning I would like to compile a simple PDF project in Qt Creator, for instance, this one: http://www.qtrac.eu/diffpdf.html
accelerators.acc generic.cpp mainwindow.hpp poppler-0.16.7
CHANGES generic.hpp Makefile poppler-0.16.7.tar.gz
debug gpl-2.0.txt Makefile.Debug README
diffpdf images Makefile.Release resources.qrc
diffpdf.1 main.cpp optionsform.cpp sequence_matcher.cpp
diffpdf.pro mainwindow.cpp optionsform.hpp sequence_matcher.hpp
Q:\Projects\diffpdf-1.2.2> qmake && ls release
Can you either recommend a different PDF project to build from, or alternatively help me get this one working?
Thanks for all suggestions,

qmake just creates platform-dependent makefiles, but does not build an application.
You will need to run make (nmake, mingw32-make) too.
