Using "libmcc" in Qt project

I’m trying using “libmcc” in a Qt project, but the link-process indicates an error as shown below:
undefined reference to 'mcc_initialize(unsigned int)

I have defined the “libmcc” and path in project file (.pro):
LIBS += -lmcc
LIBS += -L/Development/board/colibri_vf/OpenEmbedded/LinuxImageV2.4/oe-core/build/out-glibc/sysroots/colibri-vf/usr/lib/

I have observed that in the path above, the file “” is missing.

What I need to do to include the “libmcc”?

Thanks in advance!

There should be a static library named libmcc.a, on my build system it has been populated after building the image:

$ find out-glibc/sysroots/ -name libmcc*

The libmcc build file does not use libtool to generate a la file, but in practice an a static library should work too.

Note that link order might lead to the error message too. Make sure that you link the mcc library after the symbol use.

I appreciate your attention. I didn’t understand your note “Make sure that you link the mcc library after the symbol use.”

The lines below are defined in my “.pro” file:

QT += core gui network
greaterThan(QT_MAJOR_VERSION, 4): QT += widgets
TARGET = tca
QMAKE_CXXFLAGS += -std=c++11

INCLUDEPATH += /home/evandro/Development/board/colibri_vf/OpenEmbedded/LinuxImageV2.4/oe-core/build/out-glibc/sysroots/colibri-vf/usr/include

LIBS += -L/home/evandro/Development/board/colibri_vf/OpenEmbedded/LinuxImageV2.4/oe-core/build/out-glibc/sysroots/colibri-vf/usr/lib/

LIBS += -lmcc -lsqlite3 -lcurl

SOURCES += main.cpp
mainwindow.cpp \

The “libmcc” is populated in the same folder that “libcurl” is. The “libcurl” is working fine, but the “libmcc” is not linked (error: undefined reference to ‘mcc_initialize(unsigned int)’).

evandro@notebook:~/Development/board/colibri_vf/OpenEmbedded/LinuxImageV2.4/oe-core/build/out-glibc/sysroots/colibri-vf/usr/lib$ ls -la libmcc* libcurl*-rw-r–r-- 1 evandro evandro 3931424 Set 10 2015 libcurl.a

Do you have any suggestions ?

Another issue, in the V2.6 release notes I found it “- removed support for multi-core communication (MCC)”. What does it mean?

Thanks and advance!

I found out why the problems related above. I was using


to reference “libmcc files”. Once my app is a “C++ app”, then I changed “mcc_api.h” inclusion declaration as shown below:

extern "C" {

Now, my app is working fine.

Thanks folks!

I am correcting my last post:

I was using "include mcc_api.h " to reference “libmcc functions”. Once … shown below:

extern “C” {
#include mcc_api.h

Btw, I forgot about it in the last answer, but we included MCC to our XY Pen Plotter Qt project:

We also use extern “C” to include mcc.h (XYPenPlotter/xypenplottercontroller.cpp at with-libmcc · toradex/XYPenPlotter · GitHub)/
