I'm using qtcreator 4.7.2, but, sorry, it's hard to understand what
you mean.

I'm sorry, but I don't understand what you don't understand.

Qtcreator's GUI is good, I think. I attach the screen shot of my
qtcreator for you. Perhaps, you could image the operation method of

Yes, I see a similar page, although slightly different graphics. The
point is that when I clicked on the first example, it took me to a web
page that was the wrong version. However today, clicking on the first
example takes me to the documentation installed on my machine. Which is
now Bug 1115112.

That takes me to the correct instructions, which are Tools > Options >
Build & Run > Qt Versions and following those instructions, I added
/usr/bin/qmake-qt5 to the list of versions, with no error reported. I
gather that means it thinks it was successful, but there are still no
examples installed. So that will be another bug in a little while, I
expect, unless anybody has any suggestions.

Anyway, please install qtcreator 4.7.2;

Thanks, but that is not what I want. I generally stick to the standard
repositories unless there is an extremely good reason to do something
else. I think Qt Creator 4.6.1 should work as shipped.

Sorry!! > Carlos <-- Just an official pacckage only user.

Sorry, don't understand that comment.

Good luck.

Thanks, Dave
