Public bug reported:

Hello, I am developing an application on a 12.10 ubuntu system with
QTCreator 2.5.2 and all the standard QT packages offered in Quantal. I
decided to build a new workstation and installed 13.04 on it, and moved
my development files to the new workstation and noticed that simple Push
Buttons did not appear correctly. The pushbuttons use text and an icon.
The pushbuttons that appear incorrectly use the layout direction
property set to a value of right to left. I know it has nothing to do
with my code because I can duplicate the problem with a new project that
has only a single pushbutton. It also occurs in Designer, so I suspect
the problem is with the underlying libraries. In 12.10, I believe the
library version is 4.8.3. In 13.04 Creator updates to 2.7.0 and the
libraries to... 5x? I'm not sure. Is it possible to install the 12.10
toolchain on a 13.04 system? I tried adjusting the /etc/apt/sources.list
to quantal sources but conflicts arose. Thanks for looking, and I could
provide screen shots if needed.
