Exclamation unable to launch "p4":unknown error


I just installed QT Creator through the repo but I can't build anything because I am getting this error...
Code:
unable to launch "p4":unknown error
Does anyone know what package "p4" is? It says in QT creator that its a environment variable...

I think you need to install the linux-headers for your kernel. The only "p4" I have on my system is this:
Quote:
/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.26-1-686/include/config/x86/p4
It's not an environment variable since you don't launch environment variables; you assign them values.
cheers,
jdk

Ok, now I see. P4 is a program not which requires special ENV variables. Have you set those variables? Have you tried running the program without the P4 variables checked?

It's in the image you supplied. There is is checkbox, which is checked, labelled "use default P4 environment variables"
