    Default Qt 5.1 and Mac: Bug making macdeployqt not working properly

    Hi,

    I have a problem since the version 5.1rc2 of Qt for Mac OS X. (5.1 is also affected, not the 5.1rc1)
    When I build my app and do a "otool -L" on the binary file to see the paths of the shared libraries, I get: (it's just a sample, I removed some of them for clarity)
    /System/Library/Frameworks/AppKit.framework/Versions/C/AppKit (compatibility version 45.0.0, current version 1187.37.0)
    /Users/chris/Qt5.1.0//5.1.0/clang_64/lib/QtWebKitWidgets.framework/Versions/5/QtWebKitWidgets (compatibility version 5.1.0, current version 5.1.0)
    /Users/chris/Qt5.1.0//5.1.0/clang_64/lib/QtQuick.framework/Versions/5/QtQuick (compatibility version 5.1.0, current version 5.1.0)
    /Users/chris/Qt5.1.0//5.1.0/clang_64/lib/QtQml.framework/Versions/5/QtQml (compatibility version 5.1.0, current version 5.1.0)
    /Users/chris/Qt5.1.0//5.1.0/clang_64/lib/QtNetwork.framework/Versions/5/QtNetwork (compatibility version 5.1.0, current version 5.1.0)
    /Users/chris/Qt5.1.0//5.1.0/clang_64/lib/QtCore.framework/Versions/5/QtCore (compatibility version 5.1.0, current version 5.1.0)
    /Users/chris/Qt5.1.0//5.1.0/clang_64/lib/QtGui.framework/Versions/5/QtGui (compatibility version 5.1.0, current version 5.1.0)
    As you can see there is a double slash in the path of the Qt libraries.
    When I use macdeployqt to deploy my app, those paths aren't changed to local frameworks (@executable_path/../Frameworks/...), because of this...
    I have to do it manually with the install_name_tool, and it's really annoying.

    What can I do to fix this? (I've tried re-installing Qt, cleaning, runing qmake again and rebuilding without change)

    I wrote this little script to fix the paths... https://gist.github.com/lasconic/5965542

    Thanks, Iasconic, may you explain how should we use it?
    Besides, is it possible for us to use macdeploy to deploy other 3rd parties libs?
    I always combine openCV and Qt together

    ps : deploy 3rd party libs on mac is a nightmare for me, have no idea why they make things
    become so complicated?

    Thanks, I'll try that when I come back from holidays.
    But I already tried "install_name_tool -change" and it broked my binary because of Qxt dependencies.

    Found the answer from stack overflow

    thanks to JimmyTaker

    You just need to replace YOURBINARY with e.g. myapp.app/Contents/MacOS/myapp

    And QTDIR=$1 with QTDIR=/Users/MyName/Qt5.1.0/5.1.0/clang_64

    Save the file in the same dir as myapp.app

    And run it with

    sh thankslasconic.sh

    then you can run

    macdeployqt myapp.app

    and it should work. For me it did. That is why I am posting it here.

    Added after 4 minutes:
