Would you be so kind to help me in trying to add a valid kit to QT Creator? These are the screenshots of kits available options.

Fedora 22 KDE Spin

Has Google search not turned anything? This seems to be a common problem. I will install Qt Creator later to see how it works.

In the Kits tab, Qt version is selected as "None". Open the combo box and select Qt 4.8.4 version.

If you also want to have a fully working Qt5 Kit, install qt5-qtdeclarative-devel and also for Qt Quick 1 qt5-qtquick1-devel. Then, if not added automatically, manually add a new Kit and select Qt 5.4.2 as its Qt version.

If more details are needed, let me know.

The "Mobile Application" kit is a left-over from older Qt versions, and should not be used anymore. In Qt Creator 2.8 it has been removed to avoid this confusion.

Just use any of the regular templates, such as "Qt GUI Application", "Qt Quick 2 Application" or "Empty Qt Project" to start from a completely clean slate. If you have problems using these templates, then those issues need to be addressed instead

I don't have a great answer for you as I'm very new to Qt-Creator, but I noticed that the "GUI Applications" have both Desktop and Android support. If you select GUI you'll have the option to configure the kits and select Android ARM 5/6/7 or x86 under your kits.

You can select Android or play around with both Desktop and Android to start out. I'm in the middle of playing with a "Hello World" example and trying to deploy to a Nexus 7. This definitely launches the AVD though I've had little success actually connecting to it at the moment.

Hopefully this pushes you past the initial hump.
