    Default Using QtCreator on Ubuntu

    Hello, i'd been using Qt on Windows XP and decided to port my project to Ubuntu, using QtCreator.
    There was very little work involved, but I did get a surprise that all the object files were being created in the same directory as the source files as well as the executable.

    All of this despite the fact that if I right-clicked on the project icon and looked at the item "Define the compilation configuration" I had
    "Debug" as I had in Windows.

    I had expected the object and executable to be created in the Debug subdirectory.

    Default Re: Using QtCreator on Ubuntu

    On unix systems the compilation is traditionally done in the same directory as the source files (or to be more precise in the "current" directory) and I'm not speaking about Qt but programming in general. If you wish to override this behaviour, add appropriate entries about the DESTDIR and optionally a couple of other variables to your project file.
    Your biological and technological distinctiveness will be added to our own. Resistance is futile.

    Please ask Qt related questions on the forum and not using private messages or visitor messages.

    Thanks,
    Looking into the manual I adapted an example to do this:
    CONFIG += debug_and_release

    CONFIG(debug, debug|release) {
    TARGET = myApp
    DESTDIR = debug
    } else {
    TARGET = myApp
    DESTDIR = release
    }
