Enabling qt examples in openSUSE and new mc2 version uploaded.

PART 1.

The issue: The examples in openSUSE 11.4 expect their resources to be in
Code:
/usr/lib/qt4/examples
which did not exist on my system.

I can no longer verify this as an 11.4 issue easily but it appears that in openSUSE we may need a symlink under /usr/lib/qt4 pointing to /usr/share/qt4/examples in order for the qt examples to run.

Code:
ls /usr/lib/qt4/examples

qt designer help without the enableRemoteControl switch

Posted 04-26-2012 at 04:02 PM by rainbowsally

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.

If you didn't "miss it" but you had trouble with a hex editing the commandline for the assistant client, here's the one that I created. It should work on openSUSE...

stupid self-fullfilling assumptions about "normal users"

To whom it may concern.
re. QT GuitarTuner bug fix.

The 'ptr' that was causing the problem was apparently the main app, not the GuitarTuner. You can stop reading here, if this makes sense to you.

But if you want to check out the guitar tuner here's a bit more info and a link to the build sources at the bottom.

Check for missing deps.

Code:
int main(int argc, char** argv)
{
  return 0;
}

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

[The fix for designer's help menu trying to get online behind your back is at the bottom.]

Before we dig back into low level code, let's talk about low level tools in general for a sec.

And what I mean by "low level" in this context is where things are not done so automatically for us. Where you actually can get your hands a little dirty -- "hands on",...

QT Computer Mad Science: Look Ma, No Code! (designer/creator experiment)

Posted 04-24-2012 at 08:22 AM by rainbowsally
Updated 08-06-2014 at 10:19 AM by rainbowsally (fixed a bum tag)

I could have sworn that early versions of QT4 couldn't do this. It still can't do some things the old QT3 could do "progress" is like that, but it looks like this one might work if you have a somewhat recent version of QT4 (and designer or creator and kde).

Here's a bit of Computer Mad Science that you might find interesting. Or at least amusing.

Features:
  • It may run in preview mode without even compiling it.
  • It may ONLY run in preview mode if you don't
