Building for ARM64
I'd like to build Qt applications for Linux Debian 10 Buster on arm64. (LXQt desktop)
Preferences in priority order:
- Using Qt Creator natively.
- Qt Creator on x64 cross compiling (from either Windows or Ubuntu)
- Command line build, native.
- Command line build, cross.
Are any/all of these options available?
Which would be the simplest to get working?
Which would be the best (for someone who hasn't recently done sophisticated configuration/builds)?
Can you point me to instructions for any of these?
Hi and welcome to devnet,
- Just install the Qt development packages from the distribution package manager.
- Yes that's possible, you need a proper cross-compiler
- Same as 1 but without Qt Creator (which is using
qmaketo handle Qt project by default but can also do cmake or qbs)
- Would be the same as 3 but using the
qmakeversion built when cross-compiling Qt.
Duh! As simple as:
apt-get install qtcreator
and it even installed in the programming menu!
Thanks for the prompt reply!
You're welcome !

It wasn't quite that simple. I also had to:
apt-get install qt5-default
and select a version for the "kit", as described here
Then, while parsing the .pro file, I got:
Project ERROR: Unknown module(s) in QT:charts
I'm not sure how to resolve that.
Qt 5 is splitted in several modules. I don't remember Debian providing an "install all Qt 5" package so you'll have to search the one you need and install them.
That did it. My app's running! :-)
