If everything is setup properly as explained here, you will be able to run Calligra apps and debug them from within Qt Creator. Git integration works too.
|First, you have to get the source of Calligra and install all dependencies. That is described best in the Building Calligra 2.x article, which would be anyway a must read, if you are building the first time. Following recipes were tested for Calligra 2.x , QtCreator 2.x or newer and Qt 4.8.x. All paths here are kept similar to these explained on the Building Calligra page but make sure you use correct ones.|
|This is a simplified Calligra- and CMake- specific recipe, more extensive documentation is at .|
- Start Qt Creator, use File -> Open File or Project from the menu and select CMakeLists.txt file which is in the root of your Calligra source tree directory. The CMake wizard should start.
- In the Build Location wizard's page you can set a custom build directory. Better do not use the proposed one (/path/to/source/qtcreator-build) but /home/YOURLOGIN/kde4/build/calligra or something like this. If you built this code from command line before, it's best idea to use the same build dir as before. Thus you can use Creator-based and command line-based builds exchangeably.
- Click Next. On the Run CMake wizard page you should add at least the install-dir build option:
-DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/home/YOURLOGIN/kde4/instDepending on what kind of build you want, you can also append these options:
- After finishing the wizard, change to the Project view.
- Edit the Make build step and set the Additional arguments to:
-j5 install (change 5 to other number as explained at )
- Add the variables to the build environment as listed below. You can use the Batch Edit button for convenience. See also Qt Creator Manual. Note you cannot use $HOME and other variables there. Compare to . Replace paths containing lib64 with other if your OS is 32 bit.
- Assure, that in Run Settings Run Environment is set to Use Build Environment
- Now in project's Run Settings you can select in the Run configuration which program should start when you execute Run or Debug.
