Sorry for my bad english
We can run QT standalone apps without using nickel.
I created this tutorial for other people to learn and make something nice for our Kobo's.
First I want to thank the following people:
maybe others, tell me if you belong to this list.
First, make sure you have a fully working Kobo Development enviroment (besure to compile QT 4.8.0, not 4.6
This tutorial requires also telnet/ssh!
Look at the attachments for all the files!
Unzip the QT_drivers.zip package to /usr/local/Trolltech/QtEmbedded-4.8.0-arm/plugins/
Create a little example QT application
(run qmake in the dir, then make)
or use my one.
Because my fonts weren't working (rounded squares, no text), I used the fonts sergeyvl12 provided, look at the attachments file.
make somewhere on your Kobo a new Sh script and edit it to your needs:
#Optional: export QT_PLUGIN_PATH=/mnt/onboard/checkers/qt_plugins
#unzip fonts to /mnt/onboard
#run your app
Run the sh script you just saved
To exit the program tap CTRL+C, to go back to nickel you need to restart the device or run the SH script from here: http://pastebin.com/gEuQpaU5
If all went well you see something like this:
Ofcourse not in color
Let me know if you got problems or tips, I hope I didn't forget something.
