    Problem with setting wallpaper on Symbian on the new Qt Nokia SDK

    In order to change the device's wallpaper, I'm using the API as advices on forum.nokia Wiki's page (http://wiki.forum.nokia.com/index.php/Change_Wallpaper)

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    #include <aknswallpaperutils.h>
    _LIT(KWallpaperImage, "c:\\data\\images\\mywallpaper.jpg");
    AknsWallpaperUtils::SetIdleWallpaper(KWallpaperImage, iCoeEnv);
    CAPABILITY WriteDeviceData
    LIBRARY aknswallpaperutils.lib
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    The code compiled and worked perfectly on the 4.6.2 sdk for Symbian, however, migrating to the new Qt Nokia Sdk released on 23/6/2010 didn't succeed.
    It gives me the following error:
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    :: error: No rule to make target `\NokiaQtSDK\Symbian\SDK\epoc32\release\armv5\LIB\aknswallpaperutils.dso', needed by `\NokiaQtSDK\Symbian\SDK\epoc32\release\gcce\urel\MyApp.exe'. Stop.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In the \NokiaQtSDK\Symbian\SDK\epoc32\release\armv5\LIB\ directory I've found many .dso files, but not the specific one. I did find the header file at
    C:\NokiaQtSDK\Symbian\SDK\epoc32\include\aknswallpaperutils.h

    * Trying to build the code on the old sdk succeeded.
    * Trying to uninstall the sdk and all previous sdk's and other applications on the toolchain and then reinstalling the new SDK didn't help at all.
    * I could'nt find any other way to set the symbian device's wallpaper, neither on the new QtMobility API.

    There's probably some problem on the new SDK, and the specific \NokiaQtSDK\Symbian\SDK\epoc32\release\armv5\LIB\aknswallpaperutils.dso file is missing.

    I'd appreciate and help.

    I think you've run into the basic problem that the new Qt SDK doesn't support Symbian interfaces.

    Thank you for the replies.
    So, if I understand correct, there is currently no way to use wallpaper with the new SDK?
    with the SDK and the QtMobility I couldn't find any option, and there is no way to use the old symbian API's.
    Any idea?

    Hi,

    I know this is a rather old thread but I'm having the same problem now and is searching for a solution.
    Is i still true that you can't set a wallpaper using QMobility or Symbian?

    Thanks,

    Yes, still true. Use the native Symbian API.
