I'm currently developping an application for Meego/Harmattan. This app uses Qt Mobility API, and can easily be ported to SailfishOS. I would like to know if this API is also supported in Ubuntu Phone ?

  • If you tell us which particular API of Qt Mobility you are using, we can then point you to the right packages to install to use it in Ubuntu. Jun 5, 2013 at 8:53
  • Currently I'm using Qt Location API (namely QGeoPositionInfo andQGeoPositionInfoSource)

The Ubuntu SDK uses Qt5, and in Qt5 the QtMobility library was split into several independent ones, like Qt Location, Qt Organizer, Qt Sensors, etc. Those will be available on Ubuntu Touch.

    Any chance you could give package names and/or the proper import statements? I'm having a hell of a time figuring this out... Sep 12, 2013 at 18:14
  • It seems Qt Location is not quite finished for Qt5. At least it was not at this time: qt-project.org/forums/viewthread/23659.
