I have a .gdbinit file with all macros to print Qstring and other Qt datatypes and I kept it in $HOME. when I tried to invoke gdb through command line in a terminal it is showing help for printqstring(macro in .gdbinit file) but when I try to give the same gdb command line in debugger options/debugging/configuration. I cannot get qt macros running, I tried debug-send-command help printqstring and it threw error saying printqstring is not defined. any help is appreciated. By the way I m a newbie to slickedit.
