Qtcreator doesn't recognise *.ui files. Trying to open a ui file in qtcreator gives the following error:
"Failed to read image". Opening the files directly in designer works without a problem.

Starting qtcreator from the command line shows the following messages:
MimeDatabase: Error loading :/
Cannot open :/ No such file or directory

Opening a ui file gives the following message:
static Core::EditorManager::EditorFactoryList Core::Internal::EditorManagerPrivate::findFactories(Core::Id, const QString&) unable to determine mime type of /home/...../......./countryrankingwidget.ui/. Falling back to text/plain

Additional info:
extra/qtcreator 4.6.0-1 (and also previous versions).

Steps to reproduce:
Open *.ui file in qtcreator.
This task depends upon

Which version of Qt?
Comment by Jan Dolstra (johannis259) - Tuesday, 24 April 2018, 07:03 GMT
Sorry, I didn't realise but it is 5.11.0beta4 from kde-unstable. I assume that this is not the place to report bugs with regard to unstable packages
Comment by Antonio Rojas (arojas) - Tuesday, 24 April 2018, 07:16 GMT
It is, kde-unstable is supported, but please always mention it when reporting Qt/KDE related issues to save us debugging time.

Anyway, the internal location of the embedded changed in 5.11 so qtcreator needs to be rebuilt. We will do so when it reaches stable.
