CLion skips breakpoints when executing tests using gtest Follow
I've got a simple C++ library with some tests using GTest:
. ├── CMakeLists.txt ├── LICENSE ├── nametract.cpp ├── nametract.h ├── README.md └── tests ├── CMakeLists.txt └── nametract_test.cpp
I can run the tests just fine using CLion's gtest run configuration - it runs them as expected. It also does recognise all the tests in
nametract_test.cpp - if I want, I can run them individually.
However, when I set a breakpoint in my test case, or in
nametract.cpp, and run my tests, all the breakpoints are skipped. It does say that it is running with debugger, the tests themselves are being run and CLion reports the breakpoints as being enabled - however, it doesn't stop code execution on those. What might be the cause of this problem? How could I fix it?
cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 3.20) project(nametract) set(CMAKE_CXX_STANDARD 17) add_library(nametract nametract.cpp) add_subdirectory(tests)
CMakeLists.txt in tests folder:

If you had found previously that debugging with GDB was slow to load symbols and put the line
set auto-solib-add off
in your ~/.gdbinit file, which has the effect of loading symbols significantly faster, then you will need to comment/remove this line for symbols in a gtest to be loaded and the breakpoint to be active
