    [Qt] Need help in transferring a file using Email/Bluetooth/Social Network ...

    Hey guys, I need some general information on how can I use Qt to send a file using email or bluetooth or a social network already defined in the N900 (e.g. facebook) ..

    Regarding bluetooth, I read that Qt doesn't provide any libraries, and you would have to use Qt Extended, or use the default Maemo libraries ...

    I also know that for general phone functions, a DBus can be used to perform the necessary functions .. I need help in fully understanding this DBus concept and how to use it to transfer files ... And regarding uploading a file to a social network already defined in the N900, I have no idea ...

    Any general help on these three points would be really appreciated .. !

    You should be using Qt Mobility Messaging for Email/SMS
    http://doc.qt.nokia.com/qtmobility-1.0/messaging.html
    Qt Extended was dropped and it's legacy software, you should be using bluez library instead, which will make your Qt application not portable.
    There is some libraries for facebook access, but I'm not sure their API is publicly open.

    You can use the built in QtMobility functions. A good example is Digia's Remote Camera project. the binary can be installed from the Ovi Store and the source is available from https://gitorious.org/remote-camera. Just remember that when running in the debugger that the developer account has no email accounts so make sure to launch your app from the UI. See also https://qt-project.org/forums/viewthread/23626/.

    Edit: i know I'm replying to a very old post but the question is a perennial one.
