@torpeanders I always use just one resource file per project, and although not completely sure, it looks like having RESOURCES += ...
is intended for just one resource file.
I'm not sure if you need two resource files, I'd ask what is your use case for that, please remember that you can have subfolders to split just in case; i.e. I usually have a subfolder images for the icons and a subfolder translations and then it's a question of using the proper path
So if even this trick cannot avoid you having two resource files, please have a look at the documentation as it explains how to create/deal with external resource files (it'll be your 2nd one).
I haven't played with that system recently but AFAIR, you should be able to build the sysroot for your system on your desktop machine. Then you could use scp to copy the bits you need over to your device.
Doesn't your system provide a possibility to start from another device like a SD card or even a nfs ?
Thanks for the reply ,will certainly try the QtSpalshScreen thing when I get on the machine with the proper environment.I have noticed that when you start a new android project with Qt creator the project just runs fine. It is only when I import an external project in my instance of Qt Creator that the problem occurs.I decided to just learn a few basics on android native development ,deal with problems in the native environment ,and hopefuly it will be easier to deal with these on the Qt side of things.
