Qt Quick 5.0.1 Chapter 6 Example is not viewable

  • I am under Ubuntu 13.04

    I am trying to build a QML extension and I downloaded the package qtquick1-5-examples (5.0.1) so as to see some examples.

    When I try to run the chapter6 example (which in my system is located under $QT_DIR/examples/declarative/tutorials/extending/chapter6-plugins/), I get the error:

    $ qmlviewer app.qml
    Qml debugging is enabled. Only use this in a safe environment!
    file:///usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/qt5/examples/declarative/tutorials/extending/chapter6-plugins/app.qml:45:5: PieChart is not a type
    PieChart {

    Googling the problem came up with lots of solutions, like running qmlviewer with -I . or/and with -P . but to no avail.

    Any hints appreciated.

    Did you build the project first? That example interacts with C++, which must be compiled first.

  • Thanks a lot for the answer. The example in the package was slightly outdated, it seems.

    The link that you provided me with works flawlessly :)

    The only extra thing that I had to do was to install the package qtdeclarative5-qtquick2-plugin
