How to avoid entering library’s source files while debugging in Qt Creator with gdb?

You need to turn off auto-solib-add. From a normal gdb prompt you would type:

(gdb) set auto-solib-add off

In Qt Creator, under Options->Debugger->Gdb you can specify a Gdb startup script. Create a file with the “set auto-solib-add off” command in it and then set your Gdb startup script to that file.
