I'm following through the Create a currency converter app tutorial. I'm on a fresh raring install and have installed the ubuntu-sdk. I created a new project (QT Quick 2 UI) and copied in the CurrencyConverter.qml text. But when I use Ctrl-R to run qmlscene I get the error 'QQmlComponent: Component is not ready', qmlscene seems to run fine but the Currency Converter title text is missing.

enter image description here

Any help appreciated.

There is already a bug assigned.

See here:

The ui toolkit is still under heavy development, the bug is confirmed and assigned to the tutorials author David Planella.

Great, thanks for the reply, the bug report has some new code and it's now working. – gacrux Mar 24 '13 at 2:02
