  • Hello Sukesh - the minimal plugin and linuxfb plugin do not support a GL context. Please use eglfs or other.
    @sukeshputta - 'Hi one more error when i am trying to run Qt5_CinematicExperience example i am getting below error. root@pcm051-bsp:~# Qt5_CinematicExperience This plugin does not support createPlatformOpenGLContext! /usr/bin/Qt5_CinematicExperience: line 4: 1692 Segmentation fault /usr/share/cinematicexperience-1.0/Qt5_CinematicExperience $* root@pcm051-bsp:~# i am using minimal platform plugin.

  • For the Black, you need a framebuffer driver display support. If that is available, you can use the same approach.

Qt5 (minimal) on beaglebone, with Yocto Qt5 (minimal) on beaglebone, with Yocto Presentation Transcript

  • Qt5 (minimal) on Beaglebone, with Yocto
  • Introduction• This post publishes the method to build Qt5 for Beaglebone. To build Qt5 for Beaglebone, the below repos are needed:• poky meta-oe meta-ti meta-qt5
  • Downloading the configuration files$ git clone git://git.yoctoproject.org/poky$ cd poky$ git clone https://github.com/openembedded/meta-oe$ git clone git://git.yoctoproject.org/meta-ti$ git clone git@github.com:prabindh/meta- qt5.git View slide
  • Adding qt5 to minimal image• Add below line to conf/local.conf (notice the space at start)• IMAGE_INSTALL_append = " qtbase qtbase- tools qtbase-plugins" View slide
  • Setting Beaglebone as target• Specify Beaglebone as target, as below, in conf/local.conf• MACHINE ?= "beaglebone" BBMASK ?= ".*/meta-ti/recipes- misc/(images|payload)/"
  • Adding meta-ti and meta-oe layers to Bitbake build system• Add meta-oe and meta-ti, so that it looks like below in conf/bblayers.conf• BBFILES ?= "" BBLAYERS ?= " ${TOPDIR}/../meta ${TOPDIR}/../meta-yocto ${TOPDIR}/../meta-yocto-bsp ${TOPDIR}/../meta-oe/meta-oe ${TOPDIR}/../meta-ti "
  • Building the image$ source oe-init-build-env$ bitbake core-image-minimal• Creating SD card:• The images (MLO, u-boot, dt, uImage, and rootfs) are available at below folder,• <>/poky/build/tmp/deploy/images• Use mkmmc scripts (or any other standard SD format scripts) to burn these images to SD card.
  • Running the Qt5 examples with minimal plugin• Boot the Beaglebone, and login in as root.• $>export QT_DEBUG_BACKINGSTORE=1 $>export QT_QPA_PLATFORM=minimal $>cd /usr/bin/qt5/examples/• UI/widget examples (ex, calculator) can be run and output observed from the png file stored in the same folder.
  • Yocto build configuration used• There was an update after this, but below should give a reference.• BB_VERSION = "1.17.1" BUILD_SYS = "i686-linux" NATIVELSBSTRING = "Ubuntu-12.04" TARGET_SYS = "arm-poky-linux-gnueabi" MACHINE = "beaglebone" DISTRO = "poky" DISTRO_VERSION = "1.3+snapshot-20130403" TUNE_FEATURES = "armv7a vfp neon" TARGET_FPU = "vfp-neon" meta meta-yocto = "master:c0910f26ea0d692c6d22f2e3f87cf710b31fdf0a" meta-oe = "master:af6c39379dbe6822d1457498e53747ed63bdbb65" meta-ti = "master:ca0f68d71b08de156c4424324466aab0ebc7296f" meta-yocto-bsp = "master:c0910f26ea0d692c6d22f2e3f87cf710b31fdf0a"
  • TODO and References• TODO:• - fonts are not installed to target, so no text appears• - eglfs with virtual/gles2 configuration update• - wayland update• - Qt 5.1 update• - webkit update• - Beaglebone itself runs only at 250 MHz (!) in the default Yocto core-image-minimal. To update with TI scripts for a better performance profile• References:• https://gist.github.com/errordeveloper/4056193 https://github.com/meta-qt5/• http://gpupowered.org/node/20
