I'm using ROS indigo, ubuntu 14.04 and qt 5.

I saw that tutorial before, but my problem is that I've already created a GUI with qtcreator and i can modify it only with the design editor.

Almost all the RViz components are QWidgets, which can be embedded like any other. And qtcreator's .ui files are just XML, so you can always edit them directly if it comes to that...
