Qt 5.8-Android: When executing step "Build Android APK" Error Message

  • Hi; I'm using Qt 5.8. When I compile QtQuick Controls 2 app for Android, I get this error message:

      Android build platform: android-25
      Install to device: No
    qmlimportscanner: No such file or directory: "/home/Username/My"
    Invalid json output from qmlimportscanner.
    20:02:18: The process "/home/Username/Qt/5.8/android_x86/bin/androiddeployqt" exited with code 4.
    Error while building/deploying project QtMobileApp (kit: Android for x86 (GCC 4.9, Qt 5.8.0))
    When executing step "Build Android APK"
    20:02:18: Elapsed time: 00:04.

    What is reason of the problem? Thanks.

    Looks strange... Do you have a space in the path of your project ?

  • @SGaist thanks, yes, my project path has space like this: /home/Username/My Projects/QtMobileApp. I change the path like this: /home/Username/QtMobileApp and it's works! But I have never encountered such an error before.

    Might be a limitation in qmlscanner.

    @Ibrahim one thing I learned last 15 years using IDEs like Eclipse, QtCreator: never use spaces in pathes ;-)
