    Project Creator: No New projects found




      I am running ModusTollbox 2.2 on ubuntu (actually within a docker container, for reasons).


      Everything works fine on the command line:


      root@5a35386d6998:~# ModusToolbox/tools_2.2/project-creator/project-creator-cli --list-apps CY8CKIT-062-BLE

      Getting manifest...

      Processing super-manifest https://github.com/cypresssemiconductorco/mtb-super-manifest/raw/v2.X/mtb-super-manifest-fv2.xml...

      - Middleware ota commit latest-v1.X requires library mcuboot commit v1.5.0-cypress which is not present in the manifest data.

      - Middleware ota commit release-v1.2.0 requires library mcuboot commit v1.5.0-cypress which is not present in the manifest data.

      Successfully acquired the information.

      List of template applications supported by the board "CY8CKIT-062-BLE":









      but when trying to open the project creator from ModusToolbox (eclipse), I cannot see any available project:


      the console shows:


      Opening project creator from /root/ModusToolbox/tools_2.2/project-creator/project-creator

      No new projects found.



      The logfile shows:

      Actually same behavior is observed with previous versions ...


      What could be the reason for that ? Any way to enable more verbose logging ?


      Any hints apreciated.

          Hi Stephan,


          Can you please confirm that all the steps mentioned in the ModusToolbox Installation Guide were successful for you? Also, did you change the default installation directory in which ModusToolbox is installed?




          • 2. Re: Project Creator: No New projects found



            everything in the installation works fine,


            only I omit these three steps, as I am running in a container and I have no access to physical USB ports or attached debuggers.


            OpenOCD: <user_home>/ModusToolbox/tools_2.2/openocd/udev_rules/install_rules.sh

            WICED Bluetooth Boards: <user_home>/ModusToolbox/tools_2.2/driver_media/install_rules.sh

            Firmware Loader: <user_home>/ModusToolbox/tools_2.2/fw-loader/udev_rules/install_rules.sh


            Everything works fine:

            - I can create a project using project-creator-cli

            - When I import the created project into a ModusToolbox workspace everything is fine

            - I can build from within the IDE

            - I can debug a remote target through Segger Debug Server


            Just I cannot use the project creator from within the IDE ... no errors or warnings ... just "No new projects found"


            Best Regards

              Hi Stephan,


              I have forwarded your query to the internal team for assistance. Can you please provide a few more details?


              1. What version of Ubuntu are you using? Please provide the output from the command - lsb_release -a

              2. Please run the command - printenv and share the output.

              3. Can you click on New Application in Eclipse IDE and share a screenshot of this?

              4. Are you able to run the Project Creator GUI standalone without using Eclipse IDE?

              5. Can you please let us know how you are running Eclipse IDE from within a Docker?

              6. Also, are you running project-creator-cli from a terminal app in the Linux GUI environment or directly (eg., by SSH into the Docker image)?


              Thanks and Regards,

                Hi Rakhshith,


                when trying to run the project creator stand alone (which I was not aware, that it is possible), it gave me a kind of meaningful error message:


                root@543df700c930:/# ~/ModusToolbox/tools_2.2/project-creator/bin/project-creator

                qt.qpa.plugin: Could not load the Qt platform plugin "xcb" in "" even though it was found.

                This application failed to start because no Qt platform plugin could be initialized. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.


                Available platform plugins are: eglfs, linuxfb, minimal, minimalegl, offscreen, vnc, wayland-egl, wayland, wayland-xcomposite-egl, wayland-xcomposite-glx, webgl, xcb.


                searching the web led me to this post:




                which suggests to


                apt-get install libxkbcommon-x11-0


                This solved the issue for me.


                Thanks for your help
