Qt is a
cross-platform C++ application framework. Qt’s primary
feature is its rich set of widgets that provide standard GUI
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.
It is commonly
used via a symlink from an executable_name like
which apply to the qtchooser command are:
Lists available Qt versions
from the configuration files
Selects version as the
Qt version to be used
Runs the selected
Same as -qt=version. If set, the selected
configuration is used and binaries symlinked to qtchooser will be
executed without additional paramenters.
Used as specified in
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
User configuration files.
