    Grey cross over my file icons (pdf and ppt)

    Hello BhuvanAgarwal, I'm Didi, an independent advisor.

    The grey cross over file icons can appear when there is a sync problem with the file, for example when you use a software that back up your files on the cloud (Dropbox, SugarSync...).

    Do you use any software of this kind ?

    Regards,

    Didi

    Files with grey cross

    RPi2 from Windows cross compilation Error "The test for linking against libxcb failed!"

    Error in Cross Compilation, I am using Qt5.0, Windows10, Raspberry Pi 2.
    I was following this tutorial and the process failed at step 16 and tried with its suggestion but cannot find a solution.

    Error prompted after step 16 is:

    Running configuration tests...
    The test for linking against libxcb failed!
    Use of pkg-config is not enabled, maybe you want to pass -force-pkg-config?
    You might need to install dependency packages for libxcb.
    See src/plugins/platforms/xcb/README.


    and when I printed log in file as tutorial suggested, there are some errors mentioned like:

    • cc1plus.exe: error: unrecognized command line option '-fuse-ld=gold'
    • error "Symbolic function binding on this architecture may be broken, disabling it (see QTBUG-36129)."
    • etc.

    I tried but still find no solution.
