QT50-Snapshot on Raspberry Pi

  • Hello,

    I need QT5 on Raspberry Pi for development and through all the search I did I was following "this link": to get the snapshot from the repo. But I am having problems in adding the deb repo to the source list. Here is the error:

    "Get:2 unstable Release [1447 B]
    Ign unstable Release
    E: GPG error: unstable Release: The following signatures were invalid: NODATA 1 NODATA 2

    Many say that it is a network problem, but everything works well if I remove the qt deb, hence my problem.

    Anyone could give me a hand?

    Thank you very much!

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    No the answer you are looking for but did you consider cross-compiling Qt 5 ?

  • Hello, thanks for the reply!

    Yes I considered it, but I went through a lot of problems and, therefore, thought of using this pre-compiled version. Could you guide me through cross-compiling in real-time, so that I solve the problems I have at hand? The tutorial made by ICS didn't turn right for me.

    Thanks for all the help you may give!

  • Tryied to do it manuall and with the script. The script can't get the gcc-4.7-linaro, as it comes corrupted (" Saving to: ‘gcc-4.7-linaro-rpi-gnueabihf.tbz’

    Symbolic function binding disabled.
    -reduce-relocations was requested but this compiler does not support it
    Re-run configure with -v for more information

    Also, I can't set ./configure properly because of the above error and lastly, the /qtjsbackend folder does not exist on the git cloned repo.

    Sorry for all the amount of information, all of a sudden, but these are the errors I got. I am doing this on a Ubuntu 64-bit 14.04, and I installed ia32-libs. SGaist, I think you are the only one who can help me at this point. What are my alternatives?

  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    Are you sure the download is valid ?

    Anyway, look a bit further down the wiki, you'll see that they recommend the cross-compiler from which, by the way, is more recent

  • Still not working SGaist :( Here is a printscreen that might help!

    Thank you very much for the support!

  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    Remove the -reduce-relocations from the options like suggested, it should continue after that

  • That sorted out right, but then, another error and this one I could not fix:
    While making it, got this error:

    I tried to ignore it, but on the install got this one:

    Any advice on this?

  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    Run make without -j to get the error

  • Same:

    [EDIT]: I have run just "make" to get to that error.

  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    It makes it more readable and ensures that you don't have several errors in parallel.

    Anyway, I wasn't hit by that one, however, replacing DISPMANX_TRANSFORM_T by VC_IMAGE_TRANSFORM_T should be enough in that case

  • THank you, all sorted out right now I think! Now doing dd to the sdcard. After I plug it in RPi, I assume that qt is all set up, so if I run qt on terminal it will recognize it, right?

  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    What do you mean by run Qt on terminal ?

    Since you cross-compiled Qt, you should start Qt Creator, Go to the Preferences, in Build and Run add your newly built Qt, make a kit using it. Add a Generic Device in devices and connect it to the Rasberry Pi.

    Then create a default application that you'll configure with your Raspberry specific Kit, build, run and enjoy !

  • Ok, but I need to compile a program that makes use of Qt to run in RaspberryPi, how can I do that?

  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    That's what the last paragraph describes, just start a new default project, select your Raspberry Kit, hit the run button which will trigger a build and start the application on the Pi (if you correctly add the device in the preferences)

  • ok, so first things first, How do I do all that? What manuals can I read? I am using Ubuntu (and sorry for my noobish knowledge on this, going for Qt for the first time, and it's not being an easy ride! ).

    EDIT: I don't have any Qt environment set-up!

  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    You don't have Qt Creator installed ? Then you should go and download the Linux package and install it.

    Then go through Qt's documentation/tutorials/examples

  • SGaist, afte rall, there was something wrong with qmake.

    Suggestions? I tried again sudo make install on qtbase folder, but reported this:

    ntConfigVersion.cmake /mnt/rasp-pi-rootfs/usr/local/qt5pi/lib/cmake/Qt5Concurrent/

    [EDIT] Also, error output while trying to build:

    Did you mount your Raspberry Pi fs ?
