qt5.5 cross compile xcb failed

  • I'm new with QT and ARM.
    I had success with cross compile qt4 (4.8.5) from linux to linux-arm-gnueabihf-g++ but not with qt5 (5.5.0) (it has some changes).

    I am using:

    Linux x64: Ubuntu 15.10
    QT5 Source: qt-everywhere-opensource-src-5.5.0
    Toolchain: gcc-4.6.2-glibc-2.13-linaro
    Linux ARM: linux

    here is the configure
    ./configure -v
    -prefix /usr/local/Trolltech/arm-Qt-5.5.0
    -xplatform linux-arm-gnueabi-g++
    -qreal float
    -importdir /usr/local/Trolltech/arm-Qt-5.5.0/qml

    I change the qmake.conf in the linux-arm-gnueabi-g++ folder with :

    CONFIG += incremental


    QMAKE_CC = arm-linux-gcc
    QMAKE_CXX = arm-linux-g++
    QMAKE_LINK = arm-linux-g++
    QMAKE_LINK_SHLIB = arm-linux-g++

    QMAKE_AR = arm-linux-ar cqs
    QMAKE_OBJCOPY = arm-linux-objcopy
    QMAKE_NM = arm-linux-nm -P
    QMAKE_STRIP = arm-linux-strip

    And cross_compile has been set:
    declare -x ARCH="arm"
    declare -x CLUTTER_IM_MODULE="xim"
    declare -x COMPIZ_BIN_PATH="/usr/bin/"
    declare -x COMPIZ_CONFIG_PROFILE="ubuntu"
    declare -x CROSS_COMPILE="/home/hubing/MY-I.MX6/03_tools/gcc-4.6.2-glibc-2.13-linaro-multilib-2011.12/fsl-linaro-toolchain/bin/arm-none-linux-gnueabi-"

    here is the configuration output:
    xcb auto-detection... ()

    The test for linking against libxcb failed!
    You might need to install dependency packages for libxcb.
    See src/plugins/platforms/xcb/README.

    and i have install lib-xcb already.
    could anyone tell me why? I will appreciate your help very much!

  • I also try to configure without qt-xcb,and it works.But,when i compile an app with qt5.5,the app can't run on my arm board correctly. the console can output correct message ,but the gui doesn't show? Could anyone explain this? Does it relate to the reason that i don't compile and install xcb plugins?
