This article shows how to start system applications in Maemo, using the D-Bus command (as there is no Qt API for this purpose).
Here is an example of how to start Clock Application.
Project .pro file
// Maemo specific config lines, added to PRO-file
CONFIG += qdbus
// initializing D-Bus connection
QDBusConnection bus = QDBusConnection::sessionBus();
// here we create the D-Bus interface for starting application
QDBusInterface dbus_iface("com.nokia.HildonDesktop.AppMgr", "/com/nokia/HildonDesktop/AppMgr",
// here we send command 'LaunchApplication' with param 'worldclock'
