Hi,

I am missing an Sailfish App, that is Opensource for the Tablett. How can I port this to the Tablet? I have some programming skill, but not in GUIs.

I'm not app developer, but if I have understood correctly reading threads here, all you have do is to compile the app for i486 architecture in the SFOS SDK.

Ask the developer to compile the app for the tablet. It will take him a couple of minutes to get the app available. However the gui might look odd at some places on tablet size.

That's what a did more than half a year ago... The repro seams inactive for over two years now! And their is not a great choice for audio book apps...

Hi,

I tried to compile the project (arm and i486)... which seamed to end succesfull, but I was unable to find/get the .rpm file. Also when I tried to simulate (for both plattforms) I was unable to find the app installed in the simmulator!

Do you know, what that means?

Select the "Deploy by building An RPM package": http://imgur.com/a/Bl4Hp

And you will find the rpms in the RPMS directory.

I created the tablet version (harbour-sabas-0.6-1.armv7hl.rpm). If you leave an e-mail adres I send it to you.

Hi, I tried as You discribed and did before, but I can only find a *.spec, *.sepc.861, +.spec.1943 and +.yaml in the rpm subfolder. No +.rpm and can't find one on the hole computer.

In Tools > Build & Run > (Tab) General you can find the 'Projects Directory' and the 'Default build directory', the standard for the default build directory is:

../build-%{CurrentProject:Name}-%{CurrentKit:FileSystemName}-%{CurrentBuild:Name}.

So this would be: build-harbour-sabas-MerSDK_SailfishOS_i486-Release, this is (a fresh created) directory in the Projects directory. In the directory RPMS you can find the file: harbour-sabas-0.6-1.i486.rpm

As it is kind of independent from mobile or tablet, but all about SFOS, that link seems a good starting point:
