Fast Pi delivery in benelux


  • Moderators

    today, my Pi arrived.
    It only took one week through the benelux farnell provider minifo. I expected to get it next year following all the forum topics complaining about months of waiting. So if you want it for a newsyear present... go for it!

    Now is play time!!



  • Congratulations on your purchase!
    I wish the active creativity with raspberry board :-)

    Good news, thanks. I'm thinking about investing in a Raspberry, too.

    Thanks,

    I hope we can create some Qt Momentum on the Pi here and exchange ideas and tips!



  • Congratulations Eddy! :)

    Don't hesitate to get a Raspberry Pi. It is a fantastic gadget :)

    Thanks Leon,

    It has been an amazing journey last week:
    Raspbian and Raspbmc are great and totally fun. How easy to install an image!

    But still no Qt yet. And that is my main goal.

    1. If i understand the current status, we are supposed to program on a pc and deploy to the pi. Is that right?
    2. I was hoping to program with Qt Creator on the Pi directly. Is that possible?
    3. there is no qtonpi image available that i'm aware of. Or did I miss it? I only found a very old one. I guess I'll have to compile Qt.

    Any hints to the above remarks/questions are more than welcome.

    Honestly I haven't tried to run Qt Creator on Raspberry Pi. But based on my experience with the GUI on my Pi I guess it will run very very slow :)

    There is a QtonPi distro but it is outdated and it seems that it is not recommended by Raspberry Pi Foundation any more. "Details are available at our wiki":http://qt-project.org/wiki/Download. "You can download the images from raspberrypi.org":http://downloads.raspberrypi.org/images/qtonpi/

    Thanks Leon,

    I installed libreoffice on the Pi and it was not that fast. So I think you are right, it will be too slow. Deployment from PC is the way to follow.

    Yes, those images are the old ones I found already.

    I already installed the qt50-snapshot and will try deploying a test program on the Pi.

    the Pi is fun!

    Hi Leon,

    I found a Youtube video showing a working Qt Creator on the Pi
    "link ":http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6UfIqizt6E8
    Check it yourself. It looks rather smooth so I decided to try it out myself.
    As a result Qt Creator is smoother than LibreOffice writer on the Pi.

    Have a look at the "tutorial":https://qt-project.org/wiki/apt-get_Qt4_on_the_Raspberry_Pi I made. I hope lots of people that want to start programming discover Qt this way. Isn’t that the goal of the Raspberry Pi after all?

    Quite understandable: Java vs. c++ comparison :) QtC is faster on standard PCs, too. Although, of course, both applications are too different to be compared.

    thanks Sierdzio,
    I didn't know it was java.

    just trying to tell that the Pi can do more than expected graphically.

    It is possible to use the Pi for learning Qt Creator and I tested some examples already. Of course it's not as fast as my PC ;-)
