Qt Creator: missing symbian target and maemo simulator

  • I installed a standard Nokia QT SDK but I'm missing some features:

    In my qt mobility based project, I'm not able to select Maemo as a Simulator or Symbian as a target. In the SDK Update tool there is nothing able to install (except Remote compiler but this is experimental). I want simulate the app in maemo but there isn't an option to select Maemo as device and add symbian as a project target. Do you have an idea what's going wrong?

    Thank you!

  • Hm, I just found out that the Device selection is made in the QT Simulator itself. So this problem is solved.

    Still wondering, how to get symbian as a project target.

    Thank you!

  • Qt Creator will list all targets that can be supported by all of the installed Qt versions. So my guess is that you do not have installed the symbian Qt.

    Please check the Qt versions known to creator in Tools->Options->Qt4 and make sure you have a version for Symbian installed (the bottom most line in the dialog should list the Qt version, mkspec used to build and the targeted environment.

  • Which OS are you running Nokia Qt SDK in?

    In this "other thread":http://developer.qt.nokia.com/forums/viewthread/382/ there are instructions/links for material about how to enable the Symbian target on Linux (using Forum Nokia's remote compiler).

    I tested the SDK on Windows a few months ago, but I can't remember if it brings the Symbian SDK together or you need to install it too. Maybe another forum colleague can help with the setup on Windows =)

  • Hi,

    I'm using ubuntu 10.4 x64. I seems I don't have a QT for symbian version installed as the List in Tools->Options->Qt4 lists nothing with symbian. I thought that it comes automatically with the Nokia QT SDK as the maemo stuff does.

    Sorry, I'm kind of confused about all the SDKs and QTs out there :-) What exactly do I have to install now? I won't do anything with the exerimental remote stuff.

    Thank you!

  • DigitalDriver: I think Symbian is not yet supporting Linux, so unfortunately we can not ship Symbian support with the Nokia Qt SDK for Linux at this time. Sorry.

    You are stuck with remote compiling if you need to do Symbian development on Linux at this time.

  • There are ways to install and run the Symbian toolchain on Linux, however they are not officially supported - so if you have problems, you have to either contact the people who made the workaround or fix it by yourself.

    Although it still 'experimental', in my tests with the remote compiling stuff it worked well, so if you don't have any other strong reasons against, give it a try =)

  • Ok, I didn't read that it's not supported with linux.
    Maybe, I will give the remote service a try..

    Thank you for your help!
