qtchooser -run-tool=tool [-qt=version] [program_arguments]
<executable_name> [-qt=version] [program_arguments]
Qt is a cross-platform C++ application framework. Qt's primary feature is its rich set of widgets that provide standard GUI functionality.
The Qt Chooser provides a wrapper to switch between versions of Qt development binaries when multiple versions like 4 and 5 are installed or local Qt builds are to be used.
The options which apply to the qtchooser command are:
- Lists available Qt versions from the configuration files
- Prints environment information
- Selects version as the Qt version to be used
- Runs the selected tool.
- If qtchooser has been built with QTCHOOSER_GLOBAL_DIR (predefined search paths for qtchooser's configuration files, useful in some distros), setting this variable will override its effect.:
- Same as -qt=version. If set, the selected configuration is used and binaries symlinked to qtchooser will be executed without additional parameters.:
- Used as specified in <http://standards.freedesktop.org/basedir-spec/basedir-spec-latest.html>:
- System-wide configuration files. Each has two lines, the first is the path to the binaries and the second is the path to the Qt libraries. If a default.conf is provided, the settings from it will be automatically used in case nothing else is selected.:
- User configuration files.:
