Hello, I’m new to the Yocto Project. After installing the Toradex Embedded Linux Reference Multimedia Image for the Colibri iMX8, which is supposed to include Qt, I’m unsure where to find and open Qt, as it currently only shows the terminal. Any guidance would be appreciated. Thank you!
Apologies for the delay!
Also thanks for reaching out to us. Once you have installed our reference multimedia image, you should see a cinematic experience that is built with Qt. This is what we have as a reference for how a Qt application should look with this image.
I’m not sure if I understand what you are trying to achieve here. Could you please elaborate more on that?
Our BSP reference multimedia image includes the Qt libraries necessary to run Qt applications. To run your own Qt application instead, you should add the recipes for it with Yocto. For this, first you will have to develop your application on your host PC and then integrate it into the Yocto image. Here is a document on how to add custom meta layers to your Yocto image: Custom meta layers, recipes and images in Yocto Project (hello-world examples) | Toradex Developer Center
Please let me know if that answers your question.
