Can't run Qt app in QtCreator

  • I know this is my second thread But I had figure out that that program wont run on emulator too! I've been googling since the last 72~ hours but still can't find any solution. I am new to Qt and specially to android

    I had installed emulator and armv7a API 26 image with sdkmanager . Everything works fine with Android studio . I can Build the apps , I can test them on My Physical phone as well as in emulator.But I want to try Qt

    I had install qtcreator from arch repos . I had installed qt for android armv7a using QT's online installer , I have installed OracleJDK (I've installed 8,9 and 10 and tried QtCreator with all of them with no luck) , AndroidSDK and AndroidNDK (10e as suggested) .

    To test this configuration I create new project from File->New file or Project->Application->Qt Quick Application -Swipe .Wihtout changing any code I try to build and run it. I think it builds but it doesin't run. When I click on green run button I get this error:-

    Cannot find the android build step.
    Error while building/deploying project untitled1 (kit: Android for armeabi-v7a (GCC 4.9, Qt  (android_armv7)))
    When executing step "Deploy to Android device"

    I also tried building some examples provided by QtCreator but they gives the same result.

    here is my build and run configuration :-



    Please help me . I a relay new to this. I just started doing programming 6-7 months ago in college.

    It will also help me if you can give me your projects Build and Run configuration(screenshot).

    Also I cant find androiddeployqt in Linux.

    @noone Would this be of any help to you?

    It seems this guy had the same problem and solved it with adding gradle.

    Usually that error has to do with missing ndk/sdk or the more likely ant/gradle. Try running the build or deploy on the command line and see if it gives you more information.
