About QtCreator box
Current version of QtCreator in Fedora repositories is built with Qt version 4.8.5. This removes very useful functionalities, like the welcome screen, from QtCreator in Fedora.
As per https://qt-project.org/forums/viewthread/38398, building QtCreator with Qt 5.2+ should fix this problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open QtCreator
No welcome screen.
The welcome screen should be shown.
Hi, this has been looked at, currently it is on hold because of #1052389. But I'll see whether the other comaintainers of Qt-Creator are ok with building against Qt5 regardless.
qt-creator in rawhide is now built against Qt5.
qt-creator in the official Fedora repos for F20 won't be built against Qt5 since it is a too large change for a stable release. However, there is a copr repository at .
Will be the Copr repo updated for newer versions of QtCreator?
Done https://copr.fedoraproject.org/coprs/smani/qtcreator-qt5/build/24453/ (will try to remember to updated it also in the future).
