How to build Qt 5 for Beaglebone Black with LCD7 Cape



  • Hello,

    I currently have a Beaglebone Black with LCD7 cape working with Angstrom. I built Qt 4.8.5 for this and it works perfectly. But now, I want to develop a application with Qt5 and run it on my Beaglebone Black with touchscreen.

    I've searched how to built it but I've just found a lot of confusing information.

    My host is Desktop with Ubuntu 14.04 64 bits (virtual machine VMWare Workstation).

    Thank you.

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    Do you mean something like "this":http://www.cloud-rocket.com/2013/07/building-qt-for-beaglebone/ ?

    On a side note, please don't write your question all in uppercase. In written language it's considered shouting and not very respectful



  • Sorry.

    I followed this tutorial to build Qt4.8.5, but now I want to use Qt5.

    There are many options to configure qt5 and I've have many doubts. I want to develop GUI Widgets and QML Applications to run on BBB with touch screen.

    Thank you
