QTCHOOSER(1) General Commands Manual QTCHOOSER(1)

NAME

qtchooser – a wrapper used to select between Qt development binary ver‐
sions

SYNOPSIS

qtchooser -list-versions
qtchooser -print-env [-qt=version] qtchooser -run-tool=tool [-qt=version] [program_arguments] [-qt=version] [program_arguments]

DESCRIPTION

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.

It is commonly used via a symlink from an executable_name like qmake.

OPTIONS

The options which apply to the qtchooser command are:

-list-versions
Lists available Qt versions from the configuration files

-print-env
Prints environment information

-qt=version
Selects version as the Qt version to be used

-run-tool=tool
Runs the selected tool.

ENVIRONMENT
QTCHOOSER_NO_GLOBAL_DIR
If qtchooser has been built with QTCHOOSER_GLOBAL_DIR (prede‐
fined search paths for qtchooser’s configuration files, useful
in some distros), setting this variable will override its
effect.

QT_SELECT
Same as -qt=version. If set, the selected configuration is used
and binaries symlinked to qtchooser will be executed without
additional parameters.

XDG_CONFIG_HOME

XDG_CONFIG_DIRS
Used as specified in

FILES
/etc/xdg/qtchooser/*.conf
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.

$HOME/.config/qtchooser/*.conf
User configuration files.
