Set Installed File Permissions for Linux
Here is a guide to set permissions for installed files on linux.
In your .pro file, change QMAKE_INSTALL_FILE and QMAKE_INSTALL_PROGRAM to the following:
- <permissions octals> is the standard linux permissions octals (ex: 755).
- <owner> is the owner of the file. This parameter can be ommited.
- <group> is the group owner of the file. This parameter can also be ommited.
Here is an example implementation. In this example, I install my binary in the folder /opt/myApp and give it permissions 6755 with root as the owner and root as the group owner.
