I’m using the Qt SDK 1.1 beta on Ubuntu 10.10. I’ll deal with developing with this in another post (Eclipse keybindings, the combination of graphical and source editing (and the limitations therein), issues to bear in mind). Here I want to deal with deployment. Qt Creator offers a number of targets:
- Desktop (not relevant to this app)
- Remote compiler
I chose the last three. On Linux, there is no native support for deploying or compiling for Symbian. Compiling can be dealt with by the “remote compiler”, but what about deploying?
I can, now, to the following; all from within Qt Creator:
- Compile Qt applications and get a signed SIS file for installation
- Install the SIS file on to a USB-connected N8
- Start the application and get its console output back in the IDE.
