KDevelop Designer can't find C++Editor-Plugin

Asked by Jörg Droemer on 2006-12-09

When opening a C++ Source with "File->New-> C++Source File" the KDevelop Designer shows a message box with the text:
"There is no plugin for editing C++ Code installed.
Note: There is no plugin available on static Qt configurations"

How can I advice the KDevelop Designer, which Editor he has to invoce and how to find it?

Vica Verse, the qt designer opens the C++-Editor, but this editor blurs all information when moved a little.

And the plugin-paths in the KDevelop-Designers window Settings->ConfigureKDevDesigner are set exactly the same.

Please help me overcoming this problem.

Best regards

Jörg Droemer

KDevelop-Designer and Qt-Designer seem to use some common configuration files. If KDevelop-Designer is installed before Qt-Designer, it does't show "File->New-> C++Source File". Thus this not working option seems not to be a KDevelop-Designer-Problem.
The second problem with the "bluring when moved editor" of Qt-Designer seems to be a problem between the graphics driver and the Editor. Before installing the NVIDIA-Graphics driver it works very slow but without bluring. Nevertheless the NVIDIA-Graphics driver works almost perfect with all other programs I have been using until now.
In the time between I read some Qt Tutorials that teach how to write Qt-Applications in a very intuitiv way without using the Qt or KDevelop Designer . In my personal view, this is the approach I would propose to other Linux / Qt-Beginners. Using this approach the complete SLOT-SIGNAL mechanism is very transparent and more easy to change during the programming process, compared to the Designer approach.
