Dear fedora kde contributors,
I have recently reopened one of my old Qt projects and found that there
is no debugging output in stdout. After some time I have came to
#1227295. In that ticket is Fedora overriding Qt default settings of
Rex suggested me to open discussion here ratter than opening new ticket
Honestly, I don't see much explanation why you decided for that and I
would like to have opposite configuration (default Qt) in Fedora as
This is by design. Our users do not want to get spammed with
debugging output by default. It is easy for developers to enable it.
(We are also working on packaging the GUI KDE now ships for editing
qtlogging.ini to make it even easier.)
I think the only sane distro default for qDebug is globally off
In my opinion the debugging messages are normal and expected in output
of any application.
End users usually cannot see those messages, because they are running
application without terminal. I don't see any impact to them.
Some power users may run UI applications from terminal. But what they
expect to see there? Personally, I do that as first step in debugging
of the application.
The fedora is focused also on developers. Every qml tutorial starts
with console.log("hello world"); which suddenly doesn't work on fedora.
Maybe we should disable just part of debugging output to decrease
verbosity similar like Qt does:
Alternatively, we could improve user experience of developers by
changing this configuration during installation of qt5-devel packages.
