Toolchain with QT Creator¶
For creating the QT5 toolchain a complete Yocto build environment is required.
Depending on your module choose the correct guide - if not already set up.
QSXP, QSXM, QS8M, TX8M use NXP Yocto Zeus Guide
QSMP, TXMP, TX6, TXUL use Mainline Yocto Zeus Guide
- Setup the Yocto build-directory as described in the Yocto guide for your machine. Use the following values:
- Build the image for your target:
- Program your board using our manufacturing tools. You can also boot the image from net/tftp.
QSXP, QSXM, QS8M, TX8M use UUU - Universal Update Utility
QSMP, TXMP use STM32CubeProgrammer
TX6, TXUL use MFG-Tool
- Populate the corresponding SDK:
bitbake karo-image-qt5 -c populate_sdk
To install the previously built SDK on your host, simply run:
It is recommended to install every toolchain into a seperate folder inside
Installing QT Creator¶
Download the QT Creator offline installation for Linux from https://www.qt.io/offline-installers and execute the .run file. This will install the QT Creator for you.
Setup QT Creator¶
Now we have to tell QtCreator to use our previously installed SDK.
Start QT Creator, go toand select the Kits section.
Configure QMake, Compilers, Debuggers, and CMake as shown in the following screenshots. Of course you have to fit the paths depending on your SDK.
For the next steps it is required that your target has a working ethernet connection to your host.
Go to section Devices and choose. Follow the steps to configure your target.
To find out the IP of our target, run
ifconfig -a on it.
Now - in Kits section again - setup the Kit itself with the previously configured parameters.
Press Apply and close the Options Window.
Create a new project using the project wizard on QTCreators start screen clicking + New.
Select e.g. “Qt Quick Application - Scroll” and go through the steps. Make sure you select the right Kit.
Once created you should be able to run project on your target.
