Many thanks, that's very good of you.
I am obviously missing something fundamental here as having knocked up a
very simple test program and modding my .pro as follows:
QEXTSERIALPORT_LIBDIR = /usr/lib/
QT += core gui
TARGET = SharedSerial
TEMPLATE = app
SOURCES += main.cpp\
HEADERS += mainwindow.h \
FORMS += mainwindow.ui
QEXTSERIALPORT_LIBNAME = $$qtLibraryTarget(qextserialport-1.2)
INCLUDEPATH += QEXTSERIALPORT_INCDIR
LIBS += -L$$QEXTSERIALPORT_LIBDIR -l$$QEXTSERIALPORT_LIBNAME
DEFINES += QEXTSERIALPORT_USING_SHARED
I get the error:
:-1: error: cannot find -lqextserialport-1.2
I am guessing that these double dollar signs have to be changed. My
/usr/lib directory has:
If that's of any help.
I'm guessing I'm doing something very naive or stupid! I'm an embedded
hardware and software engineer dealing in bits and bytes most of the
time and really struggle with this stuff!
