Developing for Symbian in Linux

  • Hi there,

    First of all, sorry if this topic has been discussed previously. I did a brief search, and all the replies seemed a bit old, and not exactly what I was looking for.

    I'm looking for a way to develop for Symbian devices in my Ubuntu box, using Qt Creator, in a similar way I'm currently doing for Harmattan. There, things are really straight forward: you create / import a project, add Simulator & Harmattan targets, add a remote device, and you're good to go. I can test my apps on the phone really quickly.

    I tried the same selecting Symbian in the "New project" wizard, but then the project ends up having just the Simulator target. From that point, I couldn't find any way to add a remote Symbian device, nor a way to generate a sys package to update it later.

    Could anyone help me with that, or point me to the resources to do it? I'm also comfortable using Scratchbox for Maemo / MeeGo, so following a similar approach for Symbian would be fine, if it exists.

  • OK, it seems someone just asked the very same thing a moment before I hit "post":

    Still no useful replies there (other than "try Windows")

  • Linux??? MeeGo??? Qt??? You must be joking !
    These are all open-source !
    After 2/11 there is a new strategy: so you must do all your development in a closed big ugly rectangle, that is called M$ Dev Env TILE.
