In the build/tmp/work inside the application directory. QMake will generate them.

PS: if you're using rm_work you won't see them

No. It is a bug.

You can see for example the recipe we did for qsiv[1] in meta-qt5[2].

1. http://code.ossystems.com.br/gitweb?p=qt%2Fqsiv.git
2. https://github.com/meta-qt5/meta-qt5/blob/master/recipes-qt/qsiv/qsiv_1.1.bb

It is a working example.

Hi Otavio,

Checked your example recipe against our recipe.
Made some (small) changes to ours, needed something in ours that yours does not have:
require recipes-qt/qt5/qt5.inc

Also included the line:

Which causes the files to go into a different directory in /tmp/work/

Still have the same issue.

In the (non-yocto) host development environment, we specify the toolchain (and other things) in the graphical environment using Qt Creator and "Manage Kits", and these settings end up in the .pro.user file.
We do not bring this file into the yocto environment (nor would it be correct in that environment).
Is this likely the source of our problems?
