Run on remote Linux devices

To build an application and run it on a device:

  1. Specify a connection to the device.
  2. Select (Run).

Qt Creator uses the compiler from the kit (tool chain) to build the application.

Qt Creator copies the application files to the connected device and runs the application. The application views are displayed on the device. Command-line output is visible in the Qt Creator Application Output view.

In the Projects mode, select the remote Linux kit and then select Run to view the settings for deploying the application to the connected device. For more information, see Remote Linux Run Settings.

Debugging works transparently if GDB server is installed on the device and it is compatible with the GDB on the host.
