    Question how to define install target of lib in the .pro file


    I cant seem to find information on how to define an install target through the .pro file
    I thought I could do something like:

    Qt Code:
    1. unix{
    2. message(inside unix scope)
    3. target.path = /usr/local/lib
    4. target.files = *.so
    5. INSTALLS += target
    6. #QMAKE_EXTRA_TARGETS += target
    7. #PRE_TARGETDEPS += target
    8. }
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 

    The last two lines was also tested but no difference

    My question. How do I specify the install target through the pro file. I would like the install to move *.so to /usr/local/lib and *.h to /usr/local/include/myLib
    I did not find enough information in the qmake manual.

    Can anybody help me?

    sources.files = Lan_hi.qm HelpMenu.txt
    sources.path = Destination path

    target.path += Destination path
    INSTALLS += target sources
