Build Qt creator 3.4 on pi 2 [RESOLVED]



  • I have build qt 5.5 on my raspberry pi 2 (on the card, no cross compil) and it work's fine. Now i'm trying to build qtcreator (3.4.81) but when i'm trying qmake to build it i obtained this error :

    Reading /home/pi/opt/qt-creator-master/src/plugins/designer/designer.pro [/home/pi/opt/qt-creator-master/qt-creator-build/src/plugins/designer]
    Project ERROR: Unknown module(s) in QT: designer designercomponents-private

    I'm trying this same problem but it didn't work !

    Do you know how i can resolve this ?


  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    Do you have the qttools module built ?



  • Hi, i'm not sure that qttools is build, how i can check this ?


  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    Check the content of the bin folder and see if you can find designer in there



  • In my usr/local/qt5/bin i have this :

    *qdbuscpp2xml qml qtdiag xmlpatterns
    lconvert qdbusviewer qmlimportscanner qtpaths xmlpatternsvalidator
    lrelease qdbusxml2cpp qmllint qtplugininfo
    lupdate qdoc qmlmin rcc
    moc qlalr qmlscene syncqt.pl
    qdbus qmake qmltestrunner uic
    *

    and in my local folder (use to build qt) , /home/pi/opt/qt5/qttools/bin :

    lconvert lrelease lupdate qdbus qdbusviewer qtdiag qtpaths qtplugininfo

    i don't have designer ! Do you know how i can proceed ?



  • i make some progress, i had build designer (need to build lib folder first in qt5/qttools/src/designer/src/). After that i retry a qmake and make. After a certain time i had this error :

    ../3rdparty/botan/botan.cpp:46208:21: fatal error: cpuid.h: No such file or directory
    compilation terminated.

    I found this thread about this bug :
    here

    and the solution :

    here

    I have downloaded botan.cpp and botan.h and replace them in qt-creator-master/src/libs/3rdparty/botan.

    Then i re-launch make, and now i have this error :

    ln -s libQtcSsh.so.1.0.0 libQtcSsh.so
    ln -s libQtcSsh.so.1.0.0 libQtcSsh.so.1

    HELP please !

  • today i have make another progress ! i downloaded qt creator 3.4.1 (before i take master branch). Replace botan.c and header and after many hours hours qt creator build successful !!!
    New problem, now when i launch qtcreator since terminal i have this message :

    pi@raspberrypi ~/opt/qt-creator-opensource-src-3.4.1/bin $ ./qtcreator
    [9;0]Unable to query physical screen size, defaulting to 100 dpi.
    To override, set QT_QPA_EGLFS_PHYSICAL_WIDTH and QT_QPA_EGLFS_PHYSICAL_HEIGHT (in millimeters).
    No tool chain set from kit "Desktop".
    No tool chain set from kit "Desktop".
    EGLFS: OpenGL windows cannot be mixed with others.
    Aborted

    Same question, do you have a solution ? Do i need to use qtwayland to use qt app (like qt creator)


  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    Are you running an X server on your raspberry pi 2 ?



  • I don't know, i had just downloaded the last debian image last week and no modification for the desktop ! If i understand i can't use more than one windows with eglfs, and it must full screen ? If i want to use X11, i need xcb plugin but i don't know if i have it, and there is no opengl support on it ? Perhaps the better solution is to use wayland ? Do you know lxQt (but for the moment no support for arm platform ...) ?


  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    If you are running a desktop on your Pi 2 then you're likely running an X server. For the eglfs part, you can only have one top level window and the first one is forced to be fullscreen, then you can have several non-toplevel widgets. What you can't have is several GUI application running at the same time.

    I can't tell if you have the xcb plugin, I don't know the configure options you used.

    It depends on your application needs.

    I've heard of it but it's been some times since I last read about it



  • Thank's for your help. i also tried to launch qtcreator with no desktop start (startx) at the login but i have the same error ... How i can set QT_QPA_EGLFS_PHYSICAL_WIDTH and Height ? For this error : ***No tool chain set from kit "Desktop"***, it's important to correct it or it's just a warning that i can resolve later ?


  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    export QT_QPA_EGLFS_PHYSICAL_WIDTH=XXX

    The no tool chain error means that either you don't have a compiler installed, or Qt Creator didn't find one, in any case, it doesn't influence the startup of Qt Creator.



  • If i do this : ./qtcreator -platform xcb i can launch qt creator and use it !!! It just have a problem when i am on welcome index, i have this error, i don't know if i can resolve it. But for the rest, all is fine !!!

    version
    kit
    designer

    Now i can make my app directly on my raspberry2 !!!


  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    You can disable the welcome plugin when starting Qt Creator



  • @modjo756

    to my experience you not only have to manually make and make install the lib folder in qt5/qttools/src/designer/src/ but also the components folder, as the content of this folder generates libQt5DesignerComponents library
