Orientation please, developing linux application from qt installed on windows 8 machine

  • Hi people, first of all I apologize if this is not the right section for asking this.

    As I wrote on the title, I need to make a linux application for a panel pc, I installed QT on my windows 8 and started learning last week how to use it. However now Im having problems migrating the applications i made to linux, I succesfully deployed them on Android using the AndroidGCC taken from my Android SDK, but I dont know how to deploy or create an app for linux...

    Do I need to install the GCC linux libraries on windows?
    Do I need to develop linux applications on QT always over Linux?

    NOTE: now im testing with a raspberry pi 2 with a device but the target device will be a Linux 3.0.35(QT 5.4)

    Any orientation would be appreciated.

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    That doesn't really tell what will be running on your device.

    You don't have to use Linux to do cross-compilation, but it sure helps a lot to simplify the process.

  • Thanks for the welcome,

    Im installing Qt creator on Ubuntu 14.04 (64-bit) as i saw here is one of the supported: *http://doc.qt.io/qt-5/supported-platforms.html *
    , i kept reading about creating applications for linux enviroment and i found this: https://wiki.qt.io/Deploying_a_Qt5_Application_Linux
    It seems what i need to follow for my purpose, I post it here just if some linux newbie as me has the same doubts :D

    Thanks again!
