If you are brave, you can assume it works and move straight to the next step. In this post I'll look at how to configure a Linux system for Qt desktop development. It works by generating a C++ source file containing data specified in a Qt resource. I manage to get my project opened in Qt Creator, but I can only compile and run in the simulator mode - have not found a way to run the desktop version. Run the following command to install the g++ C++ compiler sudo apt-get install g++ With the above packages installed, you are ready to begin developing Qt 5 applications using Qt Creator.
Make sure your Qt Creator installation works for native development using a native Qt version running on your desktop, as this is a prerequisite to extending it to work for embedded development. This also has the effect of. If you install Qt Creator as part of a Qt installation, you should be able to use it out-of-the-box, with the default settings and configuration options. It offers a simple interface to configure the appearance of Qt4 applications including style, colors, fonts and some further options. Test the Configuration and Start Embedded Development We're now ready to try a sample project! You can directly download the latest installer from You need to select either the 32-bit or 64-bit installer, depending on the architecture of your system. Also, as I said, read the qmake manual.
Yes, either you provide the Qt libraries in your toolchain or you tell qmake where to find them. If you run it as a normal user, it will be installed in the current user's home directory, making the install suitable for use only by the user who installed it. In the Connection screen, enter the appropriate parameters. If you want to update, add or remove any components, you can run the maintenance tool, which can be found under the install directory as MaintenanceTool. You should check that it correctly set up at least one auto-detected kit, compiler, Qt version, and debugger if present : As I suggested in the other blog, this would be a good time to create some sample projects to test your installation. Build a Cross-Compiled Qt Now let's build Qt for the Raspberry Pi.
It allows you to rapidly design and build Qt Quick applications and components from scratch. We have a Raspberry Pi with Qt 5 and a toolchain running on our desktop. In order for Qt Creator to be able to build Qt applications, library files, header files and a C++ compiler must be installed. Install it using the next command: sudo apt-get install build-essential Installations steps You need to make the downloaded file executable in order to run it. After clicking on Close you should see the board show up as a device, similar to the screen shot below: Next, add the cross-compiler. In most cases, you do not need to configure the version control in any special way to make it work with Qt Creator.
The valgrind profiler and memory analyzer functions should also work. Then, clicking on the run button should deploy and run the application on the Raspberry Pi. Add theses lines to your qmake. We can configure Qt Creator to make it easy to build and run Qt applications for the Raspberry Pi. I suggest you try additional applications, either ones you may already have or some of the Qt examples and tutorials available from the Welcome tab in Qt Creator. The kit I created is shown below.
Generic highlighting is provided by , which is the syntax highlighting engine for Kate syntax definitions. Maybe you want to install build essential to test programs in your Host computer. You should then see the new compiler listed, as in the following screen shot. As in the blog for Windows, we will use Qt's online installer. You can choose to either install Qt Creator on its own or use the online installer, which will allow you to install Qt and Qt Creator based on your selection of components. If you are using the qmake you find in your distribution, it will use the default spec, which is not arm I guess.
The following sections summarize the options that you have and point you to detailed information to help you specify any required settings and to make using Qt Creator a better experience for you. Your web browser probably won't let you directly run it until you make the file executable. Anyway I seek your advice. Once done, you can launch Qt Creator. That was an excellent suggestion, so here they are.
I suggest you first build and run it locally on your desktop, which should be the default. As of the start of the quarter, that version is Qt 5. You can do that by opening a terminal window, navigating to the downloads directory, and using the chmod command. Installing explicitly solves the problem. So the right compiler is used, which I could verify when the make process starts. If you run the installer as root, it will be installed globally and be available to all users on the machine. This offers a number of advantages, including ability to run Alpha and Beta versions of Qt before they are officially released.
