Thank you for your response. The reason i'm not using make install is
because i can't force that option through the qmake file. In Qt
Creator i can add a make target just fine, but that ends up in the
local pro.user file, not in the .pro file. I'd be happy to use make
install if i could somehow predefine make targets in .pro. Right now i
can't (or don't know how to) thus any person that clones my git repo
doesn't know that make install must be used for the app to work.
