Problems with oF in Qt Creator 4.0.0, fresh installation


I’ve been working with openFrameworks and Qt in Linux Ubuntu 14.04 since almost a year. I moved to another computer so I installed the same linux ubuntu distribution and the same openframeworks version 0.9.3. What is upgraded is the Qt creator (the old where I was working is 3.6.1) which is 4.0.0 because I used the online Qt installer.
So, I’ve installed oF but when I try to create a projet using the projectGenerator and open it in Qt, it throws the strange error that the “RangeError:Maximum call stack size exceeded” and points to the oF libraries and files: openFrameworks/libs/openFrameworksCompiled/project/qtcreator/ofApp.qbs
The same happens if in Qt I want to create a new oF project… same error.

Then, the worst… the project on which I was working uses some threads, now, when I try to rebuild the project, it throws more than a thousand errors with “undefined references” to several common objects such as

…/openFrameworks/libs/poco/include/Poco/Mutex_POSIX.h: error: undefined reference to ‘Poco::SystemException::SystemException(std::string const&, int)’

and many more related.

the code is not the problem, because the project is working on the old computer with the old Qt. But in this one, I can not find which is the problem… besides the Qt Creator version, I did exactly the same. Has someone else experienced something similar? or would have some idea? Im very very frustrated :frowning:
Thanks for the help in advanced!


I had to install Qt creator 3.6.1 and worked just fine

just for you to know that Qt creator 4.0 has problems when working with openFrameworks

happy coding!

You can also use the nightly version. Qt Creator (windows): RangeError: Maximum call stack size exceeded
