Well the truly weird thing is it worked - about 3 times.

How can I activate -g ?

That will build your currently selected build configuration and 
run it in the debugger. Whether the currently selected build
configuration is set up in a way to instruct the compiler to
create debug information (a.k.a. "add -g") is unrelated.

Running a non-"-g" build in the debugger is possible, but loses
a lot of functionality. The warning you get is caused by Creator
checking (and not finding) typical signs of a "-g" build.

The check itself may be wrong, but it's more likely that your
active build configuration is indeed not a "-g" build.
