This is the fallback icon in case the widget plugin does not have one for the 
respective widget.
It is provided by designer so it falls back to the Qt logo.

This could be a bug in the widget plugin, i.e. it not correctly specifying the 
include as a global include.

The includes should still work though if you make sure the compiler's include 
path list contain the respective include dir.
See INCLUDEPATH if you are using a QMake based project.

Missing LIBS portion for the library providing the widget implementations.
Mostly KDEUI (in Qt4).

I didn't get that part.
Qt Designer is not a fork of something, neither are the KDE provided widgets.

I didn't get this part either.
Sounds to me like your file associations are messed up.

Nokia has not been involved with Qt for several years.


P.S.: as a general suggestion: for development related questions prefer kde-
devel, this is a more an end user support mailing list
