  1. Post by Alliancemd on http://www.qtcentre.org/threads/45538-S-Privileges-Permissions-problems-after-running-Qt-Creator-with-priviliges-on-Linux:
    I've runned Qt Creator with root rights and now it gives me Permissions errors on 2 files when I run Qt without priviliges.
    On run:
    1: "Cannot overwrite file [my home dir]/.config/Nokia/qtversion.xml: Permission denied" - 4 times appeared this error
    On exit:
    1: "Cannot overwrite file [my home dir]/.config/Nokia/toolChains.xml: Permission denied"
    Ok, solved the problem myself
    went into the folder:
    "cd ~/.config/Nokia"
    then changed the mode for this 2 files:
    1. "sudo -s"
    2. "chmod g+w qtversion.xml"
    (I tried chmod +w for both files and didn't worked, sometimes u have to indicate if it's user, group or other)
    3. "chmod o+w qtversion.xml"
    u can try "chmod go+w qtversion.xml" so u don't have to write 2 times - I didn't tried
    4. "chmod o+w toolChains.xml"
    5. "chmod +r qtversion.xml" (same here, u may try "chmod go+rw qtversion.xml" - I didn't tried)
    6. "exit"
    That's it.
    1 more:
    "Cannot overwrite file [my home dir]/.config/Nokia/qtcreator/default.qws: Permission denied"
    The solution:
    "sudo -s chmod o+w ~/.config/Nokia/qtcreator/default.qws"
