Description

When trying to use the help system or widget documentation from within Designer, I get the error message

The binary '/opt/local/bin/Assistant.app/Contents/MacOS/Assistant' does not exist.

The Assistant application was installed in /Applications/MacPorts/Qt4/Assistant.app by the port.

Resolution: invalid
Status: newclosed

The original problem stemmed from the fact that Qt4 moves Assistant.app to a new location:

    # Move .apps into the applications_dir
    xinstall -m 755 -d ${destroot}${qt_apps_dir}
    foreach app [glob ${destroot}/${qt_bins_dir}/*.app] {
        move ${app} ${destroot}${qt_apps_dir}
    }

Creator was then unable to locate it.

As far as I can tell, Creator 2.1.0 (r78078) no longer opens Assistant.app, so there should no longer be a problem.

If I am wrong, please feel free to reopen.
