Installation help for ubuntu 14 x64

  • hi
    I am new in QT.
    I have a device name ARM Tiny6410 and the installation guide in chines language. i am confused because i have a lot of error and lot of question:
    1: at first my question is : Is qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.7.0 for 32 bit , ok for 64 bit ubuntu os?(OR i should install ubuntu x32?)
    2: is it true: first i should install qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.7.0 for compiler and the install qt creator?
    3: what is qt-sdk-linux-x86-opensource-2010.05.1.bin? and for what?
    4: I have this error when i install qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.7.0 in my Ubuntu X64 :

    root@HGHPC:/opt/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.7.0# ./configure -opensource -embedded arm -xplatform qws/linux-arm-g++

    The target system byte order could not be detected! Turn on verbose messaging (-v) to see the final report. You can use the -little-endian or -big-endian switch to ./configure to continue.

    note:i repeat this code to-wise : ./configure ..
    what can i do now?

    can anyone say to me step by step what can i do for programing embedded on tiny6410?
    thanx all

  • @MhM93 Hi,

    You should download this version:


    The downloaded file should have permissions to be executable. I.e.:

    $ chmod +x qt-opensource-linux-x64-5.4.1.run

    It's an online installer. Launch the application as usual:

    $ . qt-opensource-linux-x64-5.4.1.run

    Also, you should check the Qt requirement for Linux:


    I don't recommend you to download the source and compile it. It's more complicated and I suppose you don't want to modify the original code, do you?

  • thank you for your reply.
    so if i download qt-opensource-linux and install it. then i could compile my program for embedded device?
    i dont nedd to modify original code. you say right.

  • @MhM93 Sorry, MhM93, I didn't notice you needed to compile to get a version for embedded Linux.

    Please, download the most recent Qt version:


    When you run ./configure, pass -v to get more information during the configuration and give us more detail if the process fails again.
