Installing Qt SDK on Maemo 5 SDK / Scratchbox
For developers, Qt 4.6.2 runtime can already be installed simply by upgrading the Scratchbox environment. Run the following commands in a Scratchbox terminal:
fakeroot apt-get update fakeroot apt-get dist-upgradeAfter installing Qt 4.6.2, you can install Qt 4.6.2 SDK by running:
fakeroot apt-get install libqt4-dev
Installing Qt 4.6.2 on Nokia N900
To install Qt 4.6.2 on the device itself, you have two options at the time of this writing. Either:
- Wait for the official PR 1.2 firmware update (which contains Qt 4.6.2 built-in). Should be any day now.
- Install Qt 4.6.2 from extras-devel repository
Click here for Instructions for installing Qt (and Qt SDK) from extras-devel. These instructions should work for future versions of Qt as well. So you don't have to wait for Nokia to officially release a Qt / Qt SDK version for Maemo SDK or Nokia N900. The downside is there is a risk of problems.
For detailed resource on Qt, I recommend C++ GUI Programming with Qt 4 (2nd Edition).
