I have a clean install of Ubuntu 14.04, installed the Ubuntu SDK, and created an app from the "HTML5 App" template.

Publish tab: Publish tab

Devices tab: enter image description here

  • I had that and also I've seen the same question here on askubuntu recently. – Velkan Apr 14 '15 at 16:36
  • I don't know how it reappeared for me, but you can blindly try some things like adding ppa:phablet-team/tools or ppa:ubuntu-sdk-team/ppa and upgrading. Maybe QtCreator has some logs if it doesn't see these plugins. Also verify that chroots of ubuntu-sdk are created, have sessions and functional (using some ubuntu schroot guide from wiki). – Velkan Apr 14 '15 at 16:44
  • ...seems to have worked! Thanks! If you move your comment to an answer I can accept it :) – Mark Raymond Apr 14 '15 at 17:18
  • Only you now have precise steps to fix it, so make an answer. – Velkan Apr 14 '15 at 18:16

The instructions for installing the SDK tell you to add the ubuntu-sdk-team/ppa PPA. However, it seems that some updates from the phablet-team/tools PPA are also required for it to work correctly. Running

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:phablet-team/tools
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

made the UI of the Publish and Devices tabs appear, and allowed me to create an emulator.
