Qt 5 on Raspberry Pi - the thread

Page  
1

Hi, you might have heard about this sweet tiny project aiming to blend Qt 5 with the Raspberry Pi board. Hopefully one day this will be an active initiative within the Qt Project but as for today we are starting with this wiki page [developer.qt.nokia.com] and this forum thread.

Questions? Comments? Discuss!

Hello!

We’re also trying to bring the joys of Qt to the Raspberry Pi in the Mer project ( http://www.merproject.org ), MeeGo-derived Core with a ARMv6+VFP port.

Let’s have a chat in #mer IRC on irc.freenode.net on how we can collaborate – while we provide a bigger stack than the bare minimum you have, I think we have a lot in common when targetting Raspberry Pi and using Qt on there :)

I think vgrade is already kind of aware / jumping between both approaches, right?

Uncertain if he knew of this, didn’t hear about Taku until today personally, but anyway, always good to have a talk on where we can help each other – collaboration is a good thing :)

Totally awesome. I can’t wait to get my hands on a Raspberry board :-)

Taku is just a codename for the minimum list of components you need to have Qt 5 running on the hardware. Nothing else, really. This project puts all the focus on Qt 5 and, of course, the Raspberry Pi. There is no willingness to join the OS discussions at all.

In fact I carefully avoided the word “OS” in the wiki page, referring to ‘Linux stack’ or ‘dependencies’ precisely to stay away from this expectation. Surely I could have done better since the first thing vgrade tweeted (actually the second) was about “#nokia #taku” which is just plain wrong. Taku doesn’t aim to become an OS, it is definitely not something that is developed by Nokia. There is a couple of engineers that happen to work at Nokia, a couple of enginners that happen to work at ICS and that is pretty much about it. Qt 5 and Raspberry Pi is what matters here.

Makes sense – my interest was in the graphics parts on Raspberry Pi and Qt5 usage of those, OS, not so much :) Sorry for the misunderstanding.

I’m absolutely looking forward to it.

Do you coincidentally know if the release date is still November or if there is any early rollout for developers?

Hello,

What kind of Qt Creator integration are you working on? Are you working on making own (generic) embedded linux target? Is this work available somewhere public repos?

Initially it’ll be a generic linux device. Yes, we’re planning to make everything available in public repos.

If you are at DevDays, drop by the ICS stand. They seem to have some of this stuff on their stand.

I saw the thing at the DevDays in Munich and really liked the board.

I might end up adding a bit of support for the board to Qt Creator if I find the time to do so:) We already do have pretty decent support for generic linux, so that might be some nice creative Friday project for me:)

Hi,

any instructions on how mentors should proceed with the respective focus areas? What are the next steps?
