QFontDatabase: Cannot find font directory { PATH} - is Qt installed correctly?

  • I'm trying to run the static Qt demo on my embedded Linux via NFS by executing: ./deform -qws (running on Qt-enterprise-4.8) as my static Qt demo is residing on my host Ubuntu PC.

    However I received the following error:

    QFontDatabase: Cannot find font directory /usr/local/Trolltech/QtEmbedded-4.8.6-arm/lib/fonts - is Qt installed correctly?

    is there a way to change PATH of QFontDatabase for my embedded Linux to look for it in another PATH residing on my Ubuntu PC?

    The most simple thing to do is to copy the content of the folder over on the NFS at the same place.

  • Got it; actually my vendor supplied framebuffer code had some error; reverted to the original framebuffer and it's working again.

    I fail to see the relation with QFontDatabase. Can you explain ?
