Undefined reference to QIconvCodec during embedded make?

  • I'm trying to configure my Qt for Embedded Linux with a virtual framebuffer according to "these instructions":http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-4.8/qvfb.html. From the Qt for Embedded source folder, I'm trying:

    @./configure -embedded -opensource -confirm-license -verbose -qvfb

    I get the following error which prevents me from doing make install:

    @.obj/release-shared-emb-x86/qtextcodec.o: In function setup()': qtextcodec.cpp:(.text+0x23cc): undefined reference toQIconvCodec::QIconvCodec()'
    collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
    make[1]: *** [../../lib/libQtCore.so.4.8.4] Error 1
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/cstjean/qt/src/corelib'
    make: *** [sub-corelib-all-ordered] Error 2@

    If I do:

    @./configure -embedded -opensource -confirm-license -verbose -qvfb
    make -no-iconv
    sudo make install -no-iconv @

    ...This works. But when I go into QtCreator, Tools > Options > Build & Run > Qt Versions, I try to select qmake for Qt Embedded (for me it's in /home/cstjean/qt/bin/qmake) and it tells me:

    @Qt version is not properly installed, please run make install@

    I've tried googling this like crazy. There are a lot of suggestions to download various libraries, which I've tried to no avail, but perhaps I'm missing something because this is a pretty fresh installation of Ubuntu I'm using.

    If anyone had any suggestions, I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

  • I cross-posted this problem to StackOverflow and solved the problem myself. My answer can be found "here":http://stackoverflow.com/questions/17050177/undefined-reference-to-qiconvcodec-during-qt-embedded-make

    But to sum up my answer, you need Gnome if you're trying to install Qt Embedded for Linux with a Virtual Framebuffer on Ubuntu.

    Install Gnome for your version of Ubuntu, uninstall your previous Qt Embedded attempts, and reinstall Qt Embedded.

    Hope this helps!
