    After installing the latest version of Felgo and following the tutorial for the first build I get the error:

    Could not start process “/home/devthedev/FelgoSDK/Felgo/gcc_64/bin/qmake” /home/devthedev/FelgoSDK/Examples/Felgo/playground/AppPlayground/AppPlayground.pro -spec linux-g++ CONFIG+=debug CONFIG+=qml_debug

    Error while building/deploying project AppPlayground (kit: Felgo Desktop (Qt 5.11.1 GCC))

    When executing step “qmake”.

    Error occurs for both standard run and live run.

    Currently using Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS.

    Much thanks in advance.

    Hi Devin,

    qmake is the first step when building a Felgo project. It creates the build folder for your project and assembles a Makefile with all necessary configurations to compile the application.

    Can you verify that the Desktop build kit is correctly installed under “/home/devthedev/FelgoSDK/Felgo/gcc_64/”, as well as that the “/home/devthedev/FelgoSDK/Felgo/gcc_64/bin/qmake” is present?

    Please also make sure to run Qt Creator with sufficient permissions to start qmake and with full access to your project path ” /home/devthedev/FelgoSDK/Examples/Felgo/playground/AppPlayground/“.

    Hope this helps!

    Hey Gunther,

    After locating and opening the files you mentioned everything seemed to be in proper it’s proper place but QT now runs properly this time with no error. Any idea what happened there? I’m utterly new to Ubuntu and development so your guidance is much appreciated!

    My top guess is user permissions / access rights. But no worries, if everything worked this time you should be good for now!
