Qt World Summit: Submit your Presentation

Generic Linux Device and Beaglebone

  • Hello. I encountered a problem. I have Ubuntu 14,04 and Qt 5.4.1 (QtCreator 3.3.2). Also I have Beaglebone. I can connect to Beaglebone via terminal (ssh -l root). But when I do it via QtCreator (Tools->Options->Devices->Add->Generic Linux device) I have got freezed Ubuntu. Mouse and keyboard does not work. In the Generic Linux device I entered the same parameters: IP:, login: root, password: not use. I have checked it on Ubuntu 14.04, Ubuntu 14.10, Kubuntu 14.04, Kubuntu 14.10. I got the same freeze system. Also I tried to use several QtCreator (3.0, 3.2, 3.3) This does not solve the problem too.
    I would be grateful for any advice

  • I suggest you to write and verify your program with you machine and than, using a qemu machine or a raspberry pi device, compile it for arm.

  • Unfortunately I can't do it (((. Because I have special cape for receiving radio packets. And I need to monitor it in real time

  • What operating system are you running on the Beaglebone? How did you install Qt Creator? Can you try to reinstall it or try to install it from a different package (bundled with Qt or standalone)?

    I've never seen a lockup from Qt Creator when trying to connect to a Beaglebone.

  • Hi Pavlya, did you manage to get this working? I have the same problem.
    I'm using Beaglebone Black running Debian and have Ubuntu 14.04 on my desktop with QT 5.4.1 (x64)(Creator 3.3.1)
    I can connect from my Desktop using PUTTY or terminal without any problems.
    BUT I have problems from QT, when I try to Add a kit (Generic Linux Device) it locks when press OK to accept the IP Address and Username etc.

    This is when it tests the connection to the device.

    I have reinstalled, I have also tried from another laptop with the same Ubuntu and have the same problems.

    Any help appreciated.
