Talk:Inhibiting the device screen saver using Qt

From Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


I'm having trouble locating QSystemScreenSaver that is called for in the header file and thus get a compile error. I'm a newbie at this but finally have a phonon video player example running and have also modified it for repeating video on a Symbian3 phone using the Mobility Technology Preview. The only way I could get the video player to compile right was to uninstall all previously installed Qt components and reinstall mobility technology preview from this link: Last step is to try and add the screen saver inhibit but I'm stuck. I did also find this bug report ( and tried moving the zipped files to the C:\QtSDK\Symbian\SDKs\Symbian3Qt471\epoc32\.. udeb directory but with no luck. Any further instruction would be great. I've gone in circles now with google search.

I'm using qt 4.7.3 and Qt Mobility 1.1.3 on Nokia N8 and when I invoke setScreenSaverInhibit(); the API return false on the device.How can I inhibit the screen saver? Thank you.
