Well, since the previous entry I wrote was about my trying Qt and being slightly discontent with it, I decided “well, fuck it. It’s not like I can’t give it a try.” I already have the thing installed, and I’ve tried making a little program already by following thenewboston’s second video in his short-ass tutorial series. Unfortunately, it didn’t go well, and I will document every step of the journey in this entry. All times follow the 24-hour system and use the timezone GMT +1.
Well, I can’t say I’m fucking surprised. I just tried to compile a program and it doesn’t work. Not that it’s surprising; I mean, for fuck’s sake, nothing can be easy, can it? It’s not like it was shown in thenewboston’s video that you could just install the library and the IDE and begin writing code immediately without setting anything else up, is it? Yes! Quite the fucking opposite, that’s exactly what is required! Why, where did I get the idea that I could just begin coding my test program without having issues just like the ones I was having with Visual Studio back in the day? Pfft! Such fucking gullibility!
What? What is that supposed to mean? “When executing step “Make””? Fuck off with that shit! Now, I actually did try to select a compiler, because I know that, after searching the Internet for solutions to this fucktarded problem, a compiler actually has to be selected in order for the fucking thing to work, apparently. But let’s take a look at the “Issues” tab, which is not very fucking visible, might I add:
I don’t think you understand the fucking gravity of the situation here, Qt. You see, I installed this fucking IDE with everything that was recommended, as far as I can recall. Never was it mentioned that I had to actually set the fucking compiler manually just to get the fucking program to compile properly in order that I simply be able to test a tiny widget, which is supposed to give me a good feeling about future projects compiling just fine! But no! Let’s just not fucking compile and rather complain about the situation! Fuck if I know how to set a fucking compiler! There are like fifty quattuorquinquagintillion executables in the MinGW folder! Take a look at this shit! Fucking look at it! LOOK AT IT!
Did you really think I was going to know what the fuck to do? I mean, fucking hell! What the hell do any of these executables do? I was going to say “what the fuck do half of these even do”, but then I remembered I don’t know what even just one of them does!
cpp.exe? What, is that how you… What? Why is it cpp.exe?
Why is there a c++.exe? I thought that wasn’t good filename etiquette?
cc.exe? Wow, calm your originality!
Why is it called g++? Because g is a letter which is known to be related to c? The guys back in the Roman days decided to make a letter similar to c because it was sometimes voiced during pronunciation, such as when the older Latin “Caius” became “Gaius”. Oddly, the abbreviation of “Gaius” was still “C.” because it used to be spelled with a “C” even though it was voiced. Wow, we’re getting historical! Let’s move away from this before I probably get even more historical and linguistic facts wrong.
I guess I’ll just lurk about the Internet until I find a solution to this horseshit.
Well, I found the solution myself just a minute afterwards. The problem was… I don’t even fucking know. Look, you can select your “kits” by the “Run” button in the lower left corner of the IDE. Apparently, I had the wrong kit selected. That, or it hadn’t set a kit before I changed it from 5.5 or whatever the fuck it was to a slightly older one. I don’t know what the hell happened, but the program runs now. Somehow.
Ah yes. I see what’s going on. I had the 64-bit kit selected. For some idiotic reason, that made me unable to compile the fucking thing. Way to go. Not that it’s an issue seeing how I have been dealing with 32-bit programs all the time, but that’s just annoying. So, it only took me but half-an-hour to figure it out, the majority of which was spent typing the first part of this entry. Good job, me. Let’s waste more time, shall we? Hey, that rhymed! Except it didn’t really because it’s out of rhythm. Nevermind.
Can we just stop with the 32-bit bullshit and move on to 64-bit full-time? That’d be great, because then we wouldn’t have to waste time on stupid cockshit like this. Thanks in advance, informational technology nerds and otherwise technically inclined turds unwilling to change your ways.
Fuck you. What the hell do you mean my findcrap.ui doesn’t exist? I have done everything identically to thenewboston’s videos on making the word searching program, and now you’re telling me the interface file, which exists, doesn’t exist? Get the fuck out of here with that fucking bullshit!
Guess what? The file is there, and it’s even being fucking included! Fucking blind cunt! What’s the point in having a fucking class system if it doesn’t fucking work? God damn fucking trashy garbage programming language! Yeah, that was a pleonasm. Fuck off!
I just forgot I forgot… omg… I just remembered I forgot to categorize and tag the last entry. Bullshit.
So, even though it wouldn’t compile because everything has to be a fucking cunt to work with, I decided to go along and at least try to add a text file to the… whatever the fuck it’s called. Fuck this fucking jargon. So, it goes like this:
First, I create the text file, which looks like this:
Then, I try adding it to the project or whatever like this:
Now, I select the file:
And then this happens, which thenewboston assures people is supposed to happen:
But then something which is supposedly not supposed to happen happens:
Yes. This fucking window keeps popping up after I first tell it to “Copy” on the first popup. After that, it’s supposed to allow me to copy the file to the project, but it decides to open the fucking file explorer instead for some fucking stupid and absolutely incomprehensible reason. I can’t add the file to the project because the IDE doesn’t work properly. How in the fuck am I supposed to be able to do anything when the fucking cunts at Qt are completely fucking useless and are unable to create even a basic popup system which works properly. This is a fucking disgrace! What fucking retard decided this would be a good idea? I haven’t touched any options in the slightest aside from testing the dark skin. Wow, you got that right, didn’t you, you fucking mongoloid people at Qt?
You know, there is a sense of not wanting to continue after such travesty. If I can’t even add a fucking file to my project without the fucktards at Qt confusing the file explorer with some other window that’s supposed to pop up, then I suppose there is no fucking helping it. So far, I have been tolerant of the fucking mess thrown in my face what with all the fucking includes and new notation I’m not used to, such as the arrow operator and actually somehow inadvertently working with pointers even though I don’t fucking get pointers. I understand what they do, but what the fuck is the… point?
NEVERMIND. I FIGURED IT OUT. Apparently, I was supposed to add the file to the folder in which the project files are supposed to be stored. Well, okay. It would have been nice if you would have fucking TOLD ME WHAT THE PROBLEM WAS. Seriously, there are three fucking folders and another one containing the fucking folders themselves. Could you not have given me a message instead of just opening the fucking file explorer over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again? I thought you guys were developing a C++ library the use of which empowers users with the ability to create programs with graphical user interfaces, yet you fully fail to create a functional error message when it actually would have been nice to have one. Fucking amazing, you people.
The user interface is still refusing to be recognized. What the fuck? I’m getting sick of this already.
Yeah, I don’t understand what the fucking problem is. I have everything set up right, I’m certain, but my findcrap.ui file can’t be found for some idiotic inexplicable reason. I don’t know what the fuck you’re babbling about, compiler, but the file is definitely there. Maybe if you weren’t such a fucking blind cunt you’d be able to see that it is indeed there. Absolutely incredible.
I give up. There is no reason in continuing this futile and pointless journey which shouldn’t have been this fucking idiotically convoluted to begin with. I keep reading about makefiles or whatever the fuck they’re talking about, but I just don’t give a fuck. Fuck this fucking program and fuck Qt for making it the shitpile it is.
