Seems to be frowned on on SO. Never seen a pastebin there. But I am not that long active there.

Wasn't his idea.

According to him, he now can toggle the error on and off just by adding or removing CONFIG+=C++11 in his .pro file.

Erm... and I told him I give up. Strange things like that are far beyond what I can fix. Told him he should try to compile his Qt himself. Who knows what strange patches Ubuntu applied or what incompatible libs they hacked together. I had always very good experiences with my own Qt versions.

Thanks for your time,
