Build a Debug mode on linux
ok I'll try, it's true I have another version installed that I used usually, I installed 5.9 specifiquelly for samson. I'll try
You also need to have CMake installed with a version at least 2.8.9.
You may try to set the next generators in the "CMake generator" for your Kit: Unix Makefiles, Ninja (for that you need to have the "ninja-build" package installed).
As an "Extra generator", I have CodeBlocks set, but it is dependant on your system.
oh it's compiling fine now!
What was the problem? The generators in the Kit? If so which one did you set?
You can find more SAMSON Developer tutorials and we will be adding more source code soon on github: https://github.com/1A-OneAngstrom/SAMSON-Developer-Tutorials/tree/develop. For example, you may check the AtomShaker tutorial.
yes it was the kits, there was no autodetected ones.
I am now stuck with the launching of SAMSON-Debug. the launchind fails and says:
This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "xcb"in "".
Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.
I tried to reinstall, not changing anything...
Do you try to launch with SAMSON Element Samples from github? If so, then in the root CMakeLists.txt you need to disable PyBindTutorial (just comment
ADD_SUBDIRECTORY( PyBindTutorial )).
euh no, I just tried to launch SAMSON-Core.sh in NANO-D/SDK/0.7.0/SAMSON-Debug/Binaries to have a look at the "new" element I created (the empty one I had problem displaying and compiling before with Qt)
Have you provided a path to your Qt installation in the SAMSON-Core.sh script for SAMSON-Debug?
It should be smth like this:
yes, I did
Does SAMSON launch in Release mode?
Could you, please, try adding into the SAMSON-Core.sh script for SAMSON-Debug the a path to Qt platforms (
/home/bomble/Qt5.9.3/5.9.3/gcc_64/plugins/platforms) to the
which should provide a path to platforms ("xcb" including).
Do you have any Python installed with PyQt5 and their paths set into
LD_LIBRARY_PATH? The platforms and Qt libs from Python installation may interfere.
Yes Samson launch in Release mode.
Adding /home/bomble/Qt5.9.3/5.9.3/gcc_64/plugins/platforms path does not change anything (even if libqxcb.so is indeed there!).
I don't have PyQt5 installed at all.
if after setting the path I ldd the exe, I have only one lib with xcb in it called:
libxcb.so.1 => /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libxcb.so.1 (0x00007f820fc81000)
it's not calling for qxcb.
Maybe I should installe another version of libxcb.so.1?
Could you, please, try making the following symbolic links in the SAMSON-Debug/Binaries folder :
cd ~/NANO-D/SDK/0.7.0/SAMSON-Debug/Binaries ln -s ~/Qt5.9.3/5.9.3/gcc_64/plugins/platforms/ ./platforms ln -s ~/Qt5.9.3/5.9.3/gcc_64/plugins/xcbglintegrations/ ./xcbglintegrations
If the symbolic links won't make it work, could you, please, try copying these folders from the Qt installation into the SAMSON-Debug/Binaries folder.
the symbolic links stuff worked! thanks a lot, but I don't understand why it works now, could you explain me?
Great! Sorry for this issue!
It is due to Qt debug libraries not being shipped together with SAMSON-Debug because they are too heavy. That's why you need to install Qt and apart from providing a path to Qt libraries themselves it is sometimes necessary to provide a path to the plugins folder (Qt5.9.3/5.9.3/gcc_64/plugins, subfolders platforms and xcbglintegrations in particular).
What can also be done instead of creating symbolic links is to provide these paths in your ~/.bashrc file (this works for me on Ubuntu)
QT_VERSION=Qt5.9.3/5.9.3 export QT_PATH=$HOME/$QT_VERSION export QT5_CMAKE_INCLUDE_DIR=$QT_PATH/gcc_64/lib/cmake/ export QT5_PLATFORM_LIBRARY_PATH=$QT_PATH/gcc_64/plugins/platforms/ export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$QT5_PLATFORM_LIBRARY_PATH:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
ok I see.
Now I can start playing!
Thanks for help and patience.
Good luck @Laëtitia !
You can check https://github.com/1A-OneAngstrom/SAMSON-Developer-Tutorials/tree/develop for some SAMSON Elements Samples. We will be adding more soon.
