Symbian^3 emulator - QT component not installed

 

Hi

I have installed the following software:

1) Nokia QT SDK last version 1.0.2 (with QtCreator 2.0.1)
2) active perl 5.6.
3) symbian 3 sdk v0.9
4) Qt symbian 4.6.3

To integrate SDK with Qt Creator, I went to <SDK ROOT DIR>\epoc32\tools\qt and ran qt_conf_path_edit.bat.

Still when I try to install a HelloQt.SIS file to emulator says “Qt component not installed”.

Also in QTCreator > Tools>Options->Qt4->S60SDKs next to the Symbian3SDK says “No QT installed” … though QTCreator > Tools>Options->Qt4->Versions in autodetect section Qt 4.6.3 is found.

You cannot install a sis file(prepared for device) in the emulator.

Ok with that … still … why I cannot integrate Symbian^3 emulator with QtCreator?
Shouldnt that be possible?

anton_duca, you can use Simulator to test your apps. Emulator integration is not possible AFAIK.

I know I can use the Simulator … the problem is the UIs and other features are not as they appear/are on device ….

I am a J2ME and Android developer and …. telling me to use Simulator is like saying to use a RegularJ2ME emulator and not a DeviceEmulator …. come on man

In the releasenotes.txt from Symbian^3 SDK says clear:

“ – To integrate SDK with Qt Creator, go to <SDK ROOT DIR>\epoc32\tools\qt and run qt_conf_path_edit.bat.

Does not that sentence means it SHOULD WORK?

A better option in this case will be to use carbide.c++ symbian SDK and Qt SDK combination.

Yes, I was referring to install the Symbian SDK only. It comes with emulator – which resembles the device more.

If you have the NOKIA Qt SDK, then don’t need to in stall Qt creator , as it comes along with it.

You have to uninstall the Qt creator if you have previously installed.

This is not essential. If required you can install different versions of Qt Creator. I use a stable version along with the latest RC version.

What would be the point to integrate an IDE (like Qtcreator) with a SDK (symbian^3) ?

From my point of view is to code/test/develop better for that particular SDK … and on what can u test that better … of course on a dedicated emulator (like the emulator that ships with the Symbian^3 SDK)

Example:
Why would I integrate Netbeans or Eclipse with s60 3rd MIDP if not to test it on the S60 emulator … would it make sense to test it on a GenericJ2ME emulator (which not resembles the real device)? (not for me)

anton_duca, QtCreator integration with SDK is mostly for building apps and for debugging them on device.

I hope Nokia Qt SDK is progressing in that direction and in future we might have better tools.
