[SOLVED] How to install QT under the Raspbian image?
i executed apt-get install qt50-snapshot
but where can i find the configure-script?
and what does sysroot mean?
Which configure script? qt50-snapshot installs only Qt libs, include files & qmake with tools... You do not need to configure and build Qt on your raspbian... just use qmake to generate Makefile for your project and build it.
Sysroot - is system root folder tree of your system, it is only needed if you want buld Qt by yourself.
What you actually need?
- Just build programs with Qt on your RPi? qt50-snapshot should be installed on your RPi.
- Build program with Qt on your Local PC for RPi? You then need cross-compiler, sysroot and cross-compiled Qt on your Local PC and installed qt50-snapshot on your RPi
- Build Qt for RPi? you then need cross-compiler and sysroot on your Local PC
There is pretty nice articles on the wiki for all kind of situations: "Qt 5 and Raspberry Pi":http://qt-project.org/wiki/Qt-RaspberryPi
If I use the second option: is it enough to say apt-get install qt50-snapshot or do I have to do additional actions to install the snapshot?
yes. installed qt50-snapshot on RPi is enough to run program cross-compiled on your Local PC.
Just follow this "tutorial":http://qt-project.org/wiki/Create#QtonPi_App_SDK to cross-compile your app.
But after installing the snapshot on the pi, cross-compiling the hello-world-app and deploying it I get the messagelib
error while loading shared libraries : QtQuick.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
do I have to do more than to say apt-get install qt50-snapshot?
Look into the /opt/ path, can you see "vt" & "qt5" folder? Look into the /opt/qt5/lib which libraries are installed. You should have /opt/qt5/lib/libQtQuick.so.5 there.
If Qt libs are installed correctly, but you still can't deploy and run your app, check with ldd(on the RPi) if all dependency for your app are found. just run:
you can also check if all dependency for Qt is there:
readelf -d /opt/qt5/lib/libQtCore.so.5.0.0
readelf -d /opt/qt5/lib/libQtQuick.so.5.0.0
There is no qt5 or vt in my opt-folder
ldd says : not a dynamic executable
the readelf commands seem to work even if the folder is /opt/qt50-snapshot/lib. does this matter?
do I have to use special settings in the pro file or otherwere in the project?
Is it possible that I have to use another qmake to cross-compile for the wheezy than for the original qtonpi image?
can be solved by
before running the qt-program.
I ran into the same problem, but in my case it comes from a custom QT5 build (not the snapshot).
Anyway, if followed http://qt-project.org/wiki/RaspberryPi_Beginners_Guide
and qt ended being installed not in opt but in /usr/local/qt5pi/
libQtQuick.so.5.0.0 is in the lib subfolder but setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH does not change anything which is quite surprising, and as for Pinkypanzer the ldd tells me hello-qtonpi is not an executable :(
Any other clue?
where did you execute it? via QtCreator or locally on the pi?
do you have the rights to execute it?
Both give the same result: running from QtCreator and running locally give the same error message
Yes, my binaries are in 644 mode
now I see there's an error in my post. it has to be
maybe this is your problem? you have to link the lib-folder
Indeed I've done that, but qt is not installed in opt for me, it is in /usr/local/qt5pi/lib !
And obviously I did not picked up the path, it came out of the box from the guidelines :(
in QT CREATOR you have to set the the path in the system environment
cited from the beginners guide:
At last, add the LD_LIBRARY_PATH on the “System Environment” and set it to “/usr/local/qt5pi/lib”
In my case the path would be "/opt/qt50-snapshot/lib"
Then I'm sorry, I don't know what your problem is.
Did you check the path is available at you pi and you have the rights to read from it?
I followed the beginners guide like yourself also and ran into the same problem.
Apps deployed and executed from within QtCreator ran correctly on the device but if I went to the command line on the RPi itself, I couldn't execute them (libQtQuick.. not found)
Running: export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/qt5pi/lib/
Fixes this problem but only when logged in as root!
If I export LD_LIBRARY_PATH as user 'pi' I still cannot execute the binary (same error as before).
Stranger still, QtCreator which can deploy and run the binary correctly, is logging in via ssh with user 'pi' !
Any ideas why this is happening?
