I was running into a small issue that even though my application successfully compiled in QT Creator it was not creating a clickable executable. This was happening even though “allow executing file as program” was enabled. When I clicked it would come up with the error. “There is no application installed for ‘shared library’ files”. I did some googling and found that this was a problem with newer ubuntu distros.
Solved it by putting the following into the qps file :
And now it generates the clickable executable successfully and I can set it up in crontab to start automatically.
Just noting it here incase anyone else has the same problem. Perhaps in future OF versions it could be the default to have that linker flag enabled!
