I have a problem with Ubuntu SDK. I try to run project (qml and c++) but I get pop up window with message "Could not find the executable" and some settings (command, arguments, working directory)

How should I run it?

If you have a C++ program with a QML interface, Command is the name of the executable produced by compilation and Arguments is whatever arguments you want to pass it.

If you have a QML program with C++ plugins, Command is qmlscene and Arguments is what you would add to qmlscene to run your QML program. As a minimum, you probably want something like -I . main.qml. The -I . tells qmlscene to look for plugins in the current directory, and main.qml should be changed to whatever the name of your main QML file is.
