    Default How to set permission of installed files via qmake?

    i use this in my .pro file to install a config file to ~/.programrc:
    Qt Code:
    1. configfile.path = /${HOME}
    2. configfile.files = .programrc
    3. INSTALLS += configfile
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 

    This works, "make install" copies the .programrc to $HOME, but the file is owned by root:
    Qt Code:
    1. $ ls -l .programmrc
    2. -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 432 2008-05-19 11:02 /home/totycro/.programrc
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 

    How can i change the ownership of the file to the user during the installation?

    Default Re: How to set permission of installed files via qmake?

    In mkspecs/common/linux.conf there is:
    Qt Code:
    1. QMAKE_INSTALL_FILE = install -m 644 -p
    2. QMAKE_INSTALL_PROGRAM = install -m 755 -p
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 
    Perhaps you could override it with something like:
    Qt Code:
    1. QMAKE_INSTALL_FILE = install -m 644 -p -o $$(USER)
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 
    in the .pro file of your application.
