I attempting to follow the Ubuntu Phone App development tutorial to make a Currency Converter, and I am simply unable to complete the tutorial. I have installed all of the latest QT/Phone related content available from the PPA's in the guide. I press Ctrl+n to open a new project, but I am lost as soon as I reach this window:

enter image description here

The guide is not clear as to what to do at this window. My guess is that the QT Creator provided by the PPA has been updated/changed slightly since this guide was made 3 months ago.

Can someone clarify what to do next so I can complete the Currency Converter tutorial? Or maybe to make a picture guide from start to finish in your answer? Thank you!

From the guide, Select the Projects > Application > Qt Quick UI template and click Choose…. It seems to be renamed to Qt Quick 1 UI, can you try it ? – HackToHell Mar 19 '13 at 2:32
I click on Projects, in the left side pane, and I see nowhere Application. Where should I find it? – Dominic Jordan Hasford Mar 19 '13 at 3:04

Ok, I did that, made the project, added the code to the project, but when I try running it using Ctrl+r I get this message:Fontconfig warning: "/etc/fonts/conf.d/50-user.conf", line 9: reading configurations from ~/.fonts.conf is deprecated. file:///home/dominic/System/QT Apps/CurrencyConverter/CurrencyConverter.qml:2:1: module "Ubuntu.Components" is not installed import Ubuntu.Components 0.1 ^ – Dominic Jordan Hasford Mar 19 '13 at 3:39
