  1. i want to make apps on my toradex board for which i want to try QT but i am not getting a trial version for this…i downloaded the qt creator but in that i am not having the option to select the kits…i.e i am having a Toradex Apalis IMx6 kit and i have seen some videos in which people are getting the environment corresponding to their kits…although i opt for trial version from the qt website which says that i can use free trial for 30 days but on login there i cant see my downloads section…and also in the qt creator i dont have boot2qt…due to this i am not able to select my desireable kit…

  2. Secondly…i installed the QT creator image on my toradex board and whenever i switch on my kit i only gets the QT screen…so how can i run the file which i have created through QT creator on my toradex board…plz guide me in this…

  3. My requirements are: fast boot up,GUI touch screen,CAN communication…

Dear @akshat

1) i want to make apps on my toradex board for which i want to try QT but i am not getting a trial version for this…i downloaded the qt creator but in that i am not having the option to select the kits…i.e i am having a Toradex Apalis IMx6 kit and i have seen some videos in which people are getting the environment corresponding to their kits…although i opt for trial version from the qt website which says that i can use free trial for 30 days but on login there i cant see my downloads section…and also in the qt creator i dont have boot2qt…due to this i am not able to select my desireable kit…
Did you download the QtCreator from here?
https://www.qt.io/download
We can also try to establish the contact with Qt if you can tell us from which country you are. They have some regional sales people.

2) Secondly…i installed the QT creator image on my toradex board and whenever i switch on my kit i only gets the QT screen…so how can i run the file which i have created through QT creator on my toradex board…plz guide me in this…
You can install a new application with the following command:

appcontroller --make-default <your application>
systemctl restart b2qt

However, you don’t have to do that when using QtCreator because it will automatically install the application when you click on run.

3) My requirements are: fast boot up,GUI touch screen,CAN communication…
Please note that fastboot is not a default for boot2qt because it’s a question on how you design your system. However, Qt can also offer you professional services if you are willing to pay for the support:

Another really good Qt consulting company is KDAB:

4) I also want to know the pricing scheme for QT which will satisfy my above requirements…is it fixed or vary depending upon the requirements?
Unfortunately we don’t know the prices. They normally depend on volume and industry. The Qt sales team should be able to answer that (reachable via https://www.qt.io/contact-us/sales-contact-request/).

hey Stefan…is there any other way to develop linux apps other than QT in toradex?
I tried a lot…i am not getting any thing feasible…i have no clue how can i make apps for toradex…without investing much…i was thinking QT would be free for toradex user…but it isnt the case…
i am totally new in this…please hheeelme what ways i can opt to make apps in toradex…

https://www.qt.io/contact-us/request-a-free-trial
this is the link for free trial…but here also i am not getting the facility of selecting my toradex kit…

Hi @akshat

You can use the open source version of Qt. However, we don’t have an out of the box image for that. You would have to compile your own image including the Qt libraries as described in this article:
https://developer.toradex.com/knowledge-base/how-to-set-up-qt-creator-to-cross-compile-for-embedded-linux#Build_with_OpenEmbedded_Layers
Or you can use GTK which is included in the standard BSP. Then you should be able to follow the following article:
