Hi, Apologies that this won't tread correctly (and for directly CC'ing the three participants); I only signed up to the mailing list after I saw this conversation. I'm an MSYS2 developer (and I occasionally hack on Qt build system issues). I've spent a lot of time working on our qt5 and

But I just don't know how to include the plugins. Actually, I always get the error about the platform plugin (cocoa in my case). Any tips ? For Windows it’s like this: #if defined(Q_OS_WIN) defined(QT_STATIC) #include QtPlugin Q_IMPORT_PLUGIN(QWindowsIntegrationPlugin) #endif Best,

Hello again. Thanks for the answers. To Stephen Kelly: Here are a few questions for the list (hoping someone more knowledgable than me will read this and help): 1) Am I right when I say CMake, Qt and static linking don?t mix ? They should mix fine. Alright, I won't give up just yet. :-)

Hey, to build a static qt executable for windows you may be interested in using msys2. It offers a prepackaged static qt5 with patches for static linking with cmake (as the official files are a bit broken for mingw). Currently you have to define »QT_STATIC« and explicitly include your required

Hello, My apologies for the long post, but I think context helps a little. We have a set of applications (4 at the moment) which compile against ITK, VTK, DCMTK and Boost.  All of those things are compiled statically.  So is the application.  We are developing on Windows, OS X and Linux boxes,
