FIXED[Linux] no available android-kit by default + error on android GCC compiler selection when manually creating.



  • Qt5.2.1
    Linux - ZorinOS (based on ubuntu12.04)
    x32 intel

    _ for(good folks of Qt nation)_
    So iv'e installed a fresh Qt5.2+creator using terminal "apt-get", android sdk,ndk,jdk,ant + showed Qt creator their placement

    then on an attempt to build a new empty project on android, i discover that there is no android kit available in the project options, only a linux desktop kit(working)

    i've tried to create a kit manually:

    and thats an error i get:

    on every android compiler i select from the list (android GCC(arm-4.8) /4.6, (mips-4.8) / 4.6 , (x86-4.8) / 4.6).

    the only compiler that won't complain is the regular (not android) GCC for linux.

    what can it be caused by, and how can i fix it? thanks in advance.

    p.s.
    1)i have a very short linux experience (2 days) so please don't exclude a possibility of noobish mistakes i could do.
    2)if that matters - i did run Qt android kit successfully on my Windows7 machine, the kit was made automatically.
    3)my welcome screen in Qt creator is empty 24/7.

    Hi,

    What you got is Qt for x86.

    You need to install a Qt built for android, you can find that package in the "download page":http://qt-project.org/downloads/

    Thanks i will try it and report.

    besides that, i didn't have any problems deploying android on a x86 Qt build on my windows machine, how is it possible?

    Because you installed Qt from either the online installer or the pre-built Android package.

    With your linux distribution, you installed the development package that is distributed for Qt development on that platform.



  • Thank you, seems to be working now, also fixed my empty welcome screen.
