For this guide it is assumed that the following components are installed on your system:
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
- GCC 7.4 or later

Download the Qt 5.6.1 installer for Linux from this page.
Currently Qt 5.6.1 or earlier is recommended for CamTool plugin development; later version may not work
Make the installer executable (
chmod +x) and run it. Choose Qt 5.6 and QtCreator when asked what you want to install.
Compiling the example plugin¶
Afterwards you can open the project file (xvpSample.pro) in QtCreator.
You can leave all configurations settings on default and just build the project.
Afterwards the plugin binary is located in the output folder corresponding to your configuration. (By default:

/opt/XIMEA/CamTool to test the plugin.
