How to install Qt kits on arm architecture



  • I'm working on a nano jetson using linux arm-architecture. Normally on my window i would just install kits using the qt online installer or the maintainance tool, but here it doesn't seem to work. (despite having download it on qt main page) still, It resulted in the xepec error, after some research i figure that was because the file i use was for x86_64 architecture, not the arm architecture. Can someone enlight me on how to install kits please.
    Edit: i've successfully install qt 5 and qt creator using commands, still no luck about the kits part

    For open source users, the online installer provides x86 and x64 libraries. To get ARM libraries, download the Qt source code and build the libraries with your ARM compiler. (Remember: Kit = Qt version + Compatible compiler)

    Alternatively, if you have a commercial license, I believe certain licenses let you download pre-built ARM Qt libraries for embedded Linux.



  • @JKSH Thank you kind stranger, no really, your comment's really informative and helpful. Now i'm following instructions in https://doc.qt.io/archives/qt-4.8/qt-embedded-install.html. but currently stuck in the part:
    " cd <anywhere>
    gunzip qt-everywhere-opensource-src-%VERSION%.tar.gz
    tar xf qt-everywhere-opensource-src-%VERSION%.tar "

    like, it didn't work, am i doing s.t wrong? we type in terminal the full line like "gunzip qt-everywhere-opensource-src-%VERSION%.tar.gz" right?

    Yes (of course you have to replace %VERSION% with the version number you're downloaded).
    What happens if you do that?



  • Thank guys, i figure it out
    Thank you @jsulm for replying
    Turn out it's already installed, and my code work splendidly, before i just assume it won't work without even try to compile it (cause i don't see any kits used like on window version), but it actually does, lol.
