How to fix error Qt platform plugin "xcb"

How to fix error Qt platform plugin "xcb"

Yesterday i was installing new program on my lubuntu laptop, but i got an error that says: This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "xcb" in ""

It seems that Qt library is not found on my lubuntu, therefore the solution to this problem is simply installing Qt 5 library.

You can use the command below to install Qt 5 library on lubuntu:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install qtdeclarative5-dev qml-module-qtquick-controls

That should take care the issue, now you can try run again the program, should be no error this time.
