I haven't read it, and I have in good consideration ICS guys, but you
make it sound like is hard to find a tutorial.

So, you used a project that uses C++11, and the compiler doesn't
enable C++11 by default. That's not Qt's fault.

Hard to say which the problem is if you provide some messages in
French and no code at all...

I have a cancel button (on LInux). I don't know if it follows some Mac
convention of not having a Cancel button.

Is not that is going to kill a kitten if you go forward in the dialog,
anyways. At the end you have a summary page that tells you exactly
what is going to be done, and at least in my case, the chance to
cancel or finish the dialog.

If you feel disappointed by that, I have bad news for you. This is the
least problematic thing you are going to face while programming.
