Bug Description

Binary package hint: qtcreator

Description: Ubuntu lucid (development branch)
Release: 10.04

Installed: 1.3.1-1ubuntu1
Candidate: 1.3.1-1ubuntu1

1) Create a empty qt4 project.
2) Add a c++ file which has input/output operations using standard cin and cout
3) Under project properties->run settings, check "run in terminal"
4) Compile
5) When run, a terminal is opened which doesnot take input nor show any output.

To fix, under tools-options-environment-general, change terminal value from "x-terminal-emulator -e" to "/usr/bin/xterm -e"

The program now runs fine from an xterm window.

Just won't work with gnome-terminal, I tried -e and -x as parameters. No luck! :(

xterm works fine though.
