I use Qt Creator for Linux for our winelib application. Our app is a
hybrid winelib + Qt/X11 app, so we get the extra Qt "goodies" with Qt
Creator. But it does work for other project types too.
Getting the integrated gdb debugger to work was a trick. The main thing
is to set WINELOADERNOEXEC=1 in the environment and run /usr/bin/wine as
the debuggee. We also built and copied in a debug version of
/usr/bin/wine to keep Qt Creator from complaining when a debug session
The last "gotcha" was that we had to hack out alpha channel support for
cursors when running under GDB. (IIRC) the DIB engine uses segfaults in
normal operation which confuses GDB. I can send along that patch if you
Of course, if you are trying to debug a straight windows application
then all of this is irrelevant! But if you are doing winelib, then these
tricks can help.
