I'm trying to start the example "clocks" from the ubuntu SDK in the phone emulator. After adding the emulated device, booting it and pressing play nothing happens.

How can I found out what is going wrong? Maybe it would be helpful if someone can tell his way?

You are using an example from Qt. It doesn't include packaging config files to install it on the device/emulator.

Create another project with New Project > Ubuntu > QML App with Simple UI (qmlproject), Framework ubuntu-sdk-14.10-qml.

Copy 'content', 'doc' and 'clocks.qml' from the "clocks" example to this new project.

Rename clocks.qml to Clocks.qml.

Add that widget into Main.qml by inserting 'Clocks{}' into code somewhere among Labels and Buttons.

It should work. Watch 'Compile Output' for compile and packaging errors, 'Application Output' for install and runtime errors.
