However, due to my own stupidity I got a (probably horrably dumb) question
concerning step 4 and 5c. So, I installed QT creator on my ubuntu 14.04 OS

were fine).

I am not sure you can use Qt Creator with MXE, but you can try.

In step 4, I've done the following:
In terminal --> gedit ~/.bashrc
there I added the line "export PATH=/home/chris/mxe/usr/bin:$PATH",
actually there was no PATH=... before which confused me a bit... was that

Yes, it is. PATH is set by bash and some other files too so it is completely expected that you can't see another PATH in the file. See http://www.solipsys.co.uk/new/BashInitialisationFiles.html for a crazy chart.

In step 5c Im not quite sure what Im supposed to do:
Do I have to open the terminal, then cd to /where MXE is
installed/usr/i686-pc-mingw32/qt/bin/ and then enter something like "qmake
make" in the terminal?

No, you are supposed to cd to your *project directory*, then execute the steps shown on the website to configure and build your project.
Hope this helps.

I wish you a happy new year

You too!
