QtCreator (3.0.1, Ubuntu 14.04 LTS) allows the installation of C++ code Beautifier "Uncrustify", for reformatting existing code. This all looks simple from instructions http://doc.qt.io/qtcreator/creator-beautifier.html, but I am stuck on basic inability to install.
I have downloaded, compiled and installed the latest
uncrustify-0.61. This creates the executable etc. fine, and installs in system area.
The instructions then state:
Select Help > About Plugins > C++ > Beautifier to enable the plugin.
Well, there is no "Beautifier" plugin showing under C++. Hardly surprising, since building/installing "Uncrustify" does not do anything to "tell" Qt Creator it is there/available. How do you get Qt Creator to know the plugin is available to Load?
In have searched everywhere on the web for help. My guess is that in directory
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qtcreator/plugins/QtProject there needs to be a file like
Uncrustify.pluginspec (plus anything else), but there is no mention of this. I have scoured the web for anything to show how to actually install and make it work, but found nothing more than the instructions above, which do not work.
