Qt Creator does not run on Kubuntu Wayland

    Details

      Description

      Kubuntu 17.10 will support KDE with Wayland and X. Creator will not start when running a Wayland desktop.

      roland@dellbuntu:~/Qt/Tools/QtCreator/bin$ ./qtcreator
      This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "wayland"
      in "".

      Available platform plugins are: eglfs, linuxfb, minimal, minimalegl, offscreen, vnc, xcb.

       Creator will start if xcb platform parameter is explicitly specified.

      ./qtcreator -platform xcb

      To test it install Kubuntu 17.10 alpha, install package plasma-workspace-wayland. Kubuntu will boot into X desktop by default. Logout and select in the lower left corner plasma (Wayland).

      Fix: Add a Wayland plugin to the Qt built bundled with Creator.
