Its nice to see Developer Thomas Perl get cracking with exploring Qt on Tizen as soon as he arrived back in Vienna:

Built from normal source inside Scratchbox Build System (SBS) – source.tizen.org/platform/development-sbs without any fine-tuning.

The basic demos/examples work.


It has to be noted that Qt is not officially supported on Tizen, well the only place it is implemented is In-Vehicle Infortainment (IVI).

Here are a very quick set of instructions kindly provided by Thomas:

1. Download this: http://download.qt.nokia.com/qt/source/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.8.1.tar.gz

2. Install the SBS like this: https://source.tizen.org/platform/development-sbs/installing-sbs

3. Unpack the source tarball

4. ./configure -prefix /opt/qt-4.8.1/ -opensource -confirm-license

5. Run: “make” then “mkdir tmp”

6. INSTALL_ROOT=`pwd`/tmp/ make install

7. Copy files from “tmp/” onto the device (e.g. using “sdb push”)

8. Use “sdb shell” to get a root shell, then run


9. You might have to run this too:

ln -s /usr/local/Trolltech/Qt-4.8.1 /opt/qt-4.8.1
