    Unhappy Installing QtMobility 1.0.2 on a Win system

    Hey guys,

    I'm having some mixed results from installing QtMobility 1.0.2 and I wanted to check up if what I'm doing is correct.

    First of all, I have the Qt Nokia SDK, it included QtMobility, I've updated it to 1.0.1 using the "Maintain Nokia Qt SDK" app and so far things have been doing ok. Or at least that's what I think.

    I wanted to install the latest 1.0.2 release of QtMobility, I followed these instructions in order to do so:


    So far I was able to have it running on the cellphone by installing QtMobility_Express_Signed.sis directly on it, and Qt Creator seems to detect my settings. The only problem is that it doesn't work on the Simulator.

    Then, I find another set of how to install instructions:

    First of all, the "Bulding for Symbian on Windows" section says:
    Building Qt Mobility for Symbian is not necessary as the package contains pre-built binaries for the SDK and SIS file for the device. See the symbian\install.txt file on how to deploy these.
    Which is incorrect since there're no pre-built binaries for the SDK anywhere.

    Second, running the configure.bat (using the Qt for Symbian command prompt) gives me these results at the beginning:

    Checking available Qt
    Checking make
    ... Symbian abld make found.
    Start of compile tests
    Checking Audiorouting_s60
    ... Not Found
    Checking Tunerlibrary_for_3.1
    ... Not Found
    Checking RadioUtility_for_post_3.1
    ... Not Found
    Checking OpenMaxAl_support
    ... Not Found
    Checking Surfaces_s60
    ... Not Found
    etcetera... (everything it checks returns a Not Found)

    And lastly, every time I try to use multimedia's libs from QtMobility they work fine on the device (I can play audio using QMediaPlayer), but the simulator will always throw:

    defaultServiceProvider::requestService(): no service found for - "com.nokia.qt.mediaplayer"

    So testing is kind of a pain since compiling for the device takes years.

    Why things have to be always sooo difficult? I just wanna code

    Please, if anyone can shed some light into correctly installing QtMobility I would really appreciate it.

    I am also getting the same message when using the simulator. So it's not possible to get a QMediaPlayerControl from QMediaPlayer.

    if you update mobility to Nokia Qt SDK "manually" the simulator might not work be able to support it. You should wait for the official updates through "update Nokia Qt SDK". The 1.0.2 is now available as is updated simulator version.

    Generally if you want to try out something that's not yet officially supported in Nokia Qt SDK I would recommend using a separate Symbian SDK, just to ensure you don't mess up your nokia Qt sdk setup.

    One more thing, in the future we'll try to align the releases better i.e get those available for Nokia Qt SDK immediately when published. Technology previews and beta versions might not be available for Nokia Qt SDK, for "early adopters" I'd recommend the separate Symbian SDK approach.
