Linux Question

Can't install Qt Creator on root partition

I can't install Qt Creator using online installer


qt-unified-linux-x64-2.0.3-1-online.run


I set destination (/opt partition), I click next, I am asked for sudo password and then nothing happens. Zero progress.

I tried it on Kubuntu 16.04 before, I tried it on Antergos just a moment ago.

Everything works if I tell installer to install Qt Creator on /home partition though.

Answer

You should launch your installer under sudo privilege from command line instead, something like this:

sudo -s ./qt-unified-linux-x64-2.0.3-1-online.run
