Install Qt Creator on NVIDIA Jetson TK1

For the next project, Qt Creator is needed. Here’s a little video showing the installation on a NVIDIA Jetson Tk1 Development Kit. Looky here:

Nothing difficult here. Open up a Terminal and execute:

sudo apt-get install build-essential qt5-default qtcreator -y

which will load Qt Creator. Once Qt Creator is installed, there is still a little setup needed.

Open Qt Creator, and go to:

Tools->Options->Build & Run->Compilers

Click the ‘Add’ button and select ‘GCC’. In the ‘Compiler path:’ text box, place the path to the gcc compiler. On a standard installation the path is: /usr/bin/gcc.

You should also check the ‘Kits’ setting, available from the ‘Kits’ tab. Selecting the Desktop (default) kit, you should see Compiler: GCC. The name GCC should match the Compiler named in the previous tab.

The installation was shown on Linux for Tegra (L4T) release 21.3. Note that no special compiler flags were set. Also, CUDA was not configured.
