Posted by – August 16, 2008

In the previous article we talked a little about how to create the necessary code that shows how to create a basic hello world application on Qtopia platform, in this article with will show how to generate the makefile, build, install and run this application.

Please open a Konsole window and the execute the following commands:

#setting the appropiate environment variables
source /opt/Qtopia/SDK/scripts/devel-x86.sh

#changing to directory where the sources can be found
cd ~/projects/helloworld

#generating make files from helloworld.pro
qtopiamake

#clean previous build
make clean

#build application binaries
make

#creating the application package to deploy on device (or emulator)
sdk –p

#installing application on device
sdk –i

You can run the application by clicking on runqpe icon on desktop.

I personally would like to see Qtopia platform as real option of application platform for Nokia devices, Qtopia has a lot of features that makes the application development much more easy than Symbian platform.
