It’s a beautiful saturday here in Røyken / Norway. About -5C, blue skies, and snow all over the place. Wear sunglassses! Feeling good; some week-old bruise around my spinal tap from snowboarding last week-end is still annoying me a little, but that’s just part of the charm ;-). Tomorrow I’ll be on a plane across […]

Starting interactive processes with QProcess

Published Thursday March 16th, 2006 | 3 Comments on Starting interactive processes with QProcess
Posted in KDE, Qt

I’ve been playing with QProcess quite a bit lately, which is a wonderful class. However, I noticed that I cannot start an interactive process with it (i.e. a process that gets stdin from the terminal). This is because QProcess redirects stdin for all processes it starts back to the parent process, so that the programmer […]

Qt 4’s plugins

Published Tuesday March 14th, 2006 | Comments Off on Qt 4’s plugins
Posted in Qt, Qtopia

One of the coolest things about Qt Embedded 4, Qtopia Core 4, is that it has support for keyboard, mouse and screen plugins. Which means easier implementation and deployment of embedded applications across different devices. Mousedriver is usually the touchscreen, and screendriver can be an accelerated framebuffer. Not only that, but Trolltech seperated some of […]

Note: This is my first blog posting ever, so please bear with me. 😉 There has been quite some talk recently at Trolltech about how well Qt “fits” together with other software components on the X11 desktop. We do a fairly good job of it already by providing the QAbstractEventDispatcher API in Qt 4. This […]

Distributing Qt-based binaries on Linux

Published Friday February 10th, 2006 | 1 Comment on Distributing Qt-based binaries on Linux
Posted in KDE, Qt

Yesterday, I did an in-house distribution of a LSB compliant Qt binary. It worked on all the LSB 3.0 compliant systems we have here, and with some smaller “workarounds” (aka hacks), also on LSB 2.0 systems. Building an LSB-complying Qt app is easy. Grab the lsb build environment from linuxbase.org (you need the latest lsb-build-*.rpm) […]

3GSM Barcelona

Posted in KDE, Qt, Qtopia

I have been too busy working on Trolltech’s Qtopia 4 preview demonstration for the 3GSM show to say much lately. Not to mention too busy on the weekends with the overgrown lawn, the pool, the kid, the wife, etc… to do any hacking on Opie, Qtopia, or any of my Qt programs/projects. I did manage […]
