Some of us beginners have to deal with C++, Qtcreator, builds and runs etc from scratch, all besides learning OF, and sometimes things that are obvious to programmers become big blockers for non-programmers.
So for example I just spent literally an hour trying to figure out why building in qtcreator was failing --even opening a new
.qbs was giving me a fatal error message. And then in some random github thread someone mentioned the
qbs package and it clicked, installed and voila, works as advertised.
My first reaction was to ask here an addition of a simple line explaining this for linux users, but I can push it myself in a PR, just not sure what the level of desired involvement of a non-programmer making PRs is around here.
I thought I’d ask because I suspect PRs from total OF newbies can be helpful to reduce workload of devs here focusing on real bugs, while lowering the bar of adoption amongst us by explaining things in a friendlier way.
