I just downloaded the Ubuntu phone SDK and QT creator according to the instructions.

When I fire up QTCreator, I get a screen as shown


If I ignore this message and hit continue, there are no templates to create the Mobile application as indicated in the tutorial I'm following.

I tried installing qt5-default and qtchooser - problem still persists. Here is the error message

Cannot load plugin because dependency failed to load: RemoteLinux(2.6.82) 
Reason: Cannot load plugin because dependency failed to load: QtSupport(2.6.82)

  • what happens if you try to install qt5-default and qtchooser? could you also paste Full error somewhere I can not read the last couple of lines – Joseph Mills Feb 22 '13 at 4:04

    Have you really installed Gt5 from the canonical-qt5-edgers/qt5-proper PPA as described here? What QtCreator version do you have? – Octavian A. Damiean Feb 22 '13 at 15:49
  • Try installing libbotan-1.10-0, it seems they forgot to add this as a dependency in the package.. – Cantormath Feb 22 '13 at 18:05
  • @Cantormath How would that package change anything? – Octavian A. Damiean Feb 24 '13 at 21:39
  • I followed Octavian's reply ... Followed the instruction on the PPA link. Terminal showed a message : 0 installed, 0 updated...then software centre showed some 28 updates .. I went ahead and updated - restarted the computer and BAM ! it worked ! thank you to everybody for contributing ... – Mohit Athwani Mar 5 '13 at 13:39

As David mentioned rerunning this command seemed to help:

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-sdk notepad-qml

The only other thing for me was I had to remove the previous install first and run another update before reinstalling would work.

To uninstall run the following command.

sudo apt-get purge ubuntu-sdk notepad-qml

Then update the sources and reinstall the packages.

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install ubuntu-sdk notepad-qml

I am running 12.10 so I don't know if this is the same for each release.

  • Hey, I'm new with all this ... how can I uninstall the neccessary tools ? – Mohit Athwani Feb 22 '13 at 10:06
  • You can either remove packages from the software centre or run the command in the terminal sudo apt-get remove {package-name} – CMDann Feb 22 '13 at 20:45

I ran into the same problem earlier today when I updated my system and opened QT Creator. I found that the the ubuntu-sdk package didn't update itself properly. Try running this command to fix the problem:

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-sdk notepad-qml

I am sure you already ran this to initially install QT Creator, but running this again helped me. I cannot guarantee this will fix the issue, it worked for me.

Hope this helps!

Plus run this as well:

sudo apt-get install libbotan*
