Hi all, is it possible to build a small qt application from inside jolla terminal ? I installed qmake package using zypper but when I try to execute qmake for a simple project it can't find plugins .

unknown module(s) in QT: core gui

Id say the environment of qmake is not correctly configured...

Consider that I installed qmake, g++ and all required tools using zypper from official repositories so I suppose it should be ready to run...

Note: I converted this to answer because there was no "no it didnt work" comment and thought it was stupid to leave it hanging just as a comment. I'm using my phone to compile apps so i think it should work, just that i might have forgot something that i installed :P

install these... repeat zypper searches with "dev" or "devel" for more stuff if needed.

  • libsailfishapp-devel
  • mesa-llvmpipe-libGLESv2-devel <- this you will have to force ignore dependencies - dont delete half your jolla
  • qt5-qtcore-devel
  • qt5-qtdeclarative-qtquick-devel
  • qt5-qtgui-devel (this needs the gl thing, do that first)
  • qt5-qtdeclarative-tool-qml (i think..)
