How to run QT application on X-window of the embedded platform

  • Hi, I have an urgent problem with QT run the embedded platform:
    I have an embedded EVM-Board, which runs Ubuntu with X-window desktop. The system runs like a PC linking monitor, keyboard and mouse.

    Now I want to run a QT application on X-window of the embedded system. After I downloaded QT-lib and QT-application to the file-system and run the QT-application on the terminal, the application could run and the printf-info had no problem. However, there was no QT-window to display on the monitor.

    I guess there is someting wrong with my compliled QT-lib or lack of some QT-tools。

    Please tell me where is my problem, and whether X-window system needs QVFB to run QT application (no matter on X86 or embedded platform)?

    My enviorment:
    hardware platform: TI DM8148
    complile system: Ubuntu 11.04
    complie tool:linux-arm-gnueabi-g++
    embedded system : Ubuntu 11.04
    QT opensource:qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.8.1.tar.gz

    my install QT-lib configure:
    ./configure -prefix /usr/local/Trolltech/Qt-4.8.1 -arm -xplatform qws/linux-arm-gnueabi-g++ -embedded arm -little-endian -release -opensource -fast -no-accessibility -scripttools -svg -webkit -shared -javascript-jit -qt-sql-sqlite -no-qt3support -no-mmx -no-3dnow -no-sse -no-sse2 -silent -qt-libpng -qt-libjpeg -qt-libtiff -make libs -nomake examples -nomake docs -nomake demo -no-nis -no-cups -no-iconv -no-dbus -qt-freetype -armfpa -qt-gfx-linuxfb -qt-gfx-transformed -qt-gfx-multiscreen -no-gfx-vnc -no-gfx-qvfb -qt-kbd-linuxinput -qt-mouse-linuxinput -no-glib
