# Upgrade to CUDA 5.0: cudaMemcpyToSymbol invalid device symbol error

You have just upgraded to CUDA 5.0 and the function cudaMemcpyToSymbol() throws you the infamous "invalid device symbol" error. Here is what to do.

# CUDA constant memory, namespace, and weird bugs

Edit: the usage of `cudaMemcpyToSymbol`

describded below is deprecated since CUDA 4.1 (See also my new entry Upgrade to CUDA 5.0: cudaMemcpyToSymbol invalid device symbol error)

Today I want to discuss some issues I had with CUDA constant memory and share some workarounds.

# Drag and drop not working in QTDesigner or QTCreator designer

This has upset me for some time and I finally found a forum entry solving this problem.

The problem: I wasn't able to drag&drop in QTDesigner any widgets from the widgets list to the form I was editing.

Solution found here: qtforum.org

You only need to add this entry to your `/etc/X11/xorg.conf`

:

Section "Module"

Load "extmod"

EndSection

# Broken F4 shortcut in Qtcreator for cuda files ".cu"

Well I'm using QtCreator to code my CUDA project and there has been a lot of things bothering me. Among them is this `F4`

shortcut which doesn't work. The shortcut enables switching between the header and source file but apparently the extension `.cu`

is not recognized as a C++ source file. Here is how to fix it.
