There is no option to start a C++ and QML based project in Ubuntu SDK. It only offers to create a QML project with no C++ codes.

If I try to add C++ classes to the QML project, I get this error:

enter image description here

Please provide guidance to initiate a C++ based Ubuntu Touch project in Ubuntu SDK.
Thank you!

  • Where is the file located? In the same folder or somewhere else?

  • You can use C++ for the logic and QML for the UI. It's really easy to export QObjects from C++ side to the QML side.

    Personally I lost interest due to too many troubles (Ubuntu Touch delay releases, so no phones, SDK bugs, no emulator - back in time -, and other things), maybe I'll recheck when the Development Tools will be more stable. Nov 18, 2014 at 21:40

I too had the same problem. Its actually related to the permissions. Try to lauch utouch using the 'sudo'. Hope It would help if its the same as mine

  • Or do a sudo chown youruser:youruser /location/of/project. This is better because then you dont have to run the program as su which may corrupt your entire system should an error occur Apr 11, 2015 at 3:01
