Hi. I just installed the SDK on a fresh Ubuntu 12.10 machine and got everything installed without a hitch. I went through the deployment wizard, connected my Z10 over wifi and was able to build and run the HelloCascades app just fine.
Now I want to start developing.
I created a new BlackBerry Cascades application project and can't seem to get 'Design Mode' working for QML. The button is there, juse greyed out.
Anyone have any ideas? I'm pretty eager to get started.

I think it's also dependant on your graphics card the recommendation is to make sure your drivers are up to date.
I can't find the Page at the moment but will post it when I do.
It's in the release notes (also read the bit about linux),
QML preview considerations There are several considerations you should keep in mind as you work with the QML preview in the QNX Momentics IDE. Using QML preview with multiple files open Depending on system resources available, users may experience an unexpected termination of the QNX Momentics IDE when keeping more than 10 QML files open in the editor while QML preview is enabled. Workaround: Keep the number of QML files open at any given time under 10, or disable the QML preview feature in Preferences. QML preview in Linux QML preview functionality is not working on Linux, and only works on Windows and Mac OS at the moment. Linux users can deploy their applications to a device or simulator to test the look of their QML components. Using older drivers with QML preview Any drivers more than 12 months old are unsupported and can lead to issues with rendering, including, but not limited to, complete disabling of whole QML preview feature. The user will also be notified about this situation by a dialog within the QNX Momentics IDE. Workaround: Update to the latest drivers. Note that this issue might occur even with newer graphics cards and the latest drivers. In this case, you should report this issue to Research In Motion in as much detail as possible. QML preview with C++ objects The QML preview can load and render components based on the Cascades plug-in only (in bb.cascades 1.0). Objects that are registered in C++ in your project are not understood by the QML preview and cannot be loaded and rendered. CPU usage with QML preview If you're using looping animations in your QML code with QML preview enabled, the QNX Momentics IDE may use excessive CPU.
