QML Preview window is missing in NDK Beta 2 (Linux)

[ Edited ]

Hey guys! Encountered with a problem. After updating NDK to the latest Beta 2 version QML Preview window isn't more available for me. Everything was fine with the previous NDK version, so I presume this is not a problem with libglapi-mesa and libgl1-mesa-glx mentioned here http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Cascades-Development/How-to-get-QML-preview-working-in-Linux/...

 

I simply can't enable qml preview feature, and dropdown-box with type of device is missing as well. I attached a screenshot to clarify my situation.

 

 

Has anybody faced with such an issue? How to solve it?

 

OS: Ubuntu 12.04 (32 bit)

NDK: Version: 10.0.6, Build id: v201207130407

 

Thanks!

Pretty sure it's simply not supported on Linux at the moment, which is why the download is not listed in the Cascades pages, but only under the native/beta pages.

Re: QML Preview window is missing in NDK Beta 2 (Linux)

Seems strange. Did they break something in this release? Everything was ok before that.

 

To make sure this is not my problem would be good to hear from other Linux developers whether they experience the same issues. Is there anybody working with Blackberry 10 under Linux platform?

There is no options to download BB NDK 10.0.6 for Linux, only for Win & Mac, how did you download it at all, and from where?

There was a thread about missing URL for downloading NDK Beta 2 for Linux. Can't find it now, maybe it's been deleted since a valid link for Linux NDK Beta 2 appeared in right place - https://developer.blackberry.com/native/beta/download/

 

I'll try to download it again and check if this problem gone or not

If you're on the Cascades download page, you won't see the option to select Linux, but the file is actually stored there. Same name but different path as the file in the native/beta page. They're identical though, so just head over to native/beta to get the Linux installer.

I downloaded it and tried on my Ubuntu 10.10 and i can confirm, that preview buttons for QML are disabled.

Re: QML Preview window is missing in NDK Beta 2 (Linux)

This is expected in the current (10.0.6) release and the reason why the BlackBerry Native SDK for Linux is not listed on the Cascades download page.  You can download it from the C/C++ section (and the tools are the same between sites).  It's simply not listed on the Cascades download page right now because the Cascades pieces are not supported under Linux on this release.

Re: QML Preview window is missing in NDK Beta 2 (Linux)

Hi,

 

I was also facing the same problem. I think the problem is with the workspace. When I changed my workspace it started showing me QML Preview and I did not get any error ain getting the preview anymore. May be I might have tried to run something buggy that might have generated errornous file inside workspace.
