Building for Android
For some time now I've been unsuccessfully trying to build for Android. One of the Android Studio or SDK updates must have caused it as I haven't changed anything.
Qt Creator 4.12
I can't run qmake.
This is the error I'm getting:
<path>/ndk-bundle/toolchains/arm-linux-androideabi-4.9/prebuilt/windows-x86_64/bin/arm-linux-androideabi-g++' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.
This makes sense because the file doesn't exist. The Android kit uses clang.
Where would I tell Qt Creator to work with the kit's compiler?
Or, how and from where would I get an arm-linux-androideabi-g++.exe file that would successfully build?
Any help or just considerations are appreciated.
From the top of my head, your NDK is too recent for the version of Qt you are using. Either use a version more recent of Qt or downgrade the NDK to r107.
Thanks a lot. I renamed the folder ndk-bundle and copied NDK r10e in, then renamed that to ndk-bundle.
I don't know how and why this has changed/updated to a different NDK version. This had always been r10e before. That's what https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/android-getting-started.html suggests, and that's what I think I used for the setup.
Now I got the next issue when the build process tries to package (AndroidManifest.xml:27:1-108: AAPT: error: resource array/bundled_in_lib (aka ...:array/bundled_in_lib) not found.
Since this is a different issue I'd say the original issue can be closed as solved. Thanks again!
Yes, I just went to Tools -> Options -> Devices, then Android tab. Qt Creator claims that necessary packages are missing. I most likely followed this advice in the past and broke my installation with it.
This looks like a bug in Qt Creator, although it's actually only wrong for Qt versions below 5.12.6 (according to https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/android-getting-started.html).
