Build a Debug mode on linux
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 !
