Fix typo in

Line that installs the .desktop file was moved into share/, which appears to have a typo. File installs with attached patch.

Thanks Herb Miller Jr.

I will change my PR to only apply that patch, and PR that change upstream too.
Comment 5 Herbert Wantesh 2022-04-01 12:25:23 UTC
the patch works for me, how about adding it to the ebuild?
Comment 6 Petric Frank 2022-09-08 16:43:06 UTC
Same problem here. Patch seems to fix the problem.

    dev-qt/qt-creator: add 8.0.1
    Switched from the qmake to cmake buildsystem.  Added support for the
    Coco code coverage tool. The 'git' USE flag now also builds the gitlab
    plugin. The 'wayland' flag was added to enforce built-with-use
    dependency. 'imageviewer' flag is added for conditional dependence on
    dev-qt/qtsvg.  clangd functionality now depends on >=clang-14.*.

Assume(?) this was meant to be closed by comment #7, qt-creator-11.0.2 definitely has a .desktop file installed either way.
