The debugger plugin automatically selects a suitable native debugger for each kit from the ones found on your system. To override this choice, select Edit > Preferences > Kits.
To add debuggers:
- Select Edit > Preferences > Kits > Debuggers > Add.
- In the Name field, give a descriptive name for the debugger.
- In the Path field, specify the path to the debugger binary:
- For CDB (Windows only), specify the path to the Windows Console Debugger executable.
- For GDB, specify the path to the GDB executable. The executable must be built with Python scripting support enabled.
- For LLDB (experimental), specify the path to the LLDB executable.
Qt Creator attempts to identify the type and version of the debugger and shows them in the Type and Version fields. In addition, Qt Creator shows the ABI version that will be used on embedded devices in the ABIs field.
- In the Working directory field, specify the working directory of the application process. If the application is run locally, the working directory defaults to the build directory. If the application is run remotely on a device, the value depends on the shell or the device. Usually, you can leave this field empty.
To remove the selected manually added debugger, select Remove. The debugger is removed from the list when you select Apply. Until then, you can cancel the deletion by clicking Restore.
