Hi,
thank you for the tutorial. Qt creator seems to run. But I have one or two problems.

1) Every time I start qtcreator the "Build & Run" settings are empty. No Kit, no compiler. I have to set it every time. If I start qtcreator by command line "sudo qtcreator" it behaves diffent then starting it by the link on the desktopb.

2) In one application I'm using a file dialog (QFileDialog). The problem is, that I can't select a file. All files are disabled.

I think the two above described problems with a nor very clean installation. But I don't have any idea where to search.

Any ideal?

Thank you Jak

Hi again,

Now its working. I've done this:

System:
Raspberry Pi 3
Raspbian Jessie

Installation:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

sudo apt-get install qtcreator gcc qtbase5-dev

Configure QtCreator:
Tools->Options->Build & Run
Add manual toolchain
Compiler path: /usr/bin/g++
Debugger: /usr/bin/gdb
