In case you missed it (the blog entry), qt designer tries to go online whenever you click on the help button. This can cause the help to hang for quite a long time if your user doesn't have internet access or you might just dislike the decisions made by the developers and prefer to stay in your own neighborhood.

Check for missing deps.

int main(int argc, char** argv)

Updated 04-25-2012 at 07:04 PM by hydraMax

I wanted to mention, for the benefit the community, that I created a patched version of the Tagsistant 0.4 source, which fixes a number of problems with the build system. It is available from my FTP server:


Basically, I wanted to compile tagsistant on my Gentoo system, but the build system was a mess (hardcoded paths, configure script not producing the correct files, and such like). I stripped the build system down to the essential files,...

Low Level Tools & Keeping QT Designer/Assistant from going online w/ remoteControl
