This demo uses the latest features of Qt5, and it runs with very good performance in i.MX6 Q,  please take a look!





In order to install this demo first  you should already have installed QT5,  please follow the instructions from here:


Building QT for i.MX6


Then make the qmake that you just created available in your PATH variable.


$ export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/Trolltech/Qt5-imx6-1/bin


This is the example for my personal installation, please modify the Qt5 path accordingly to yours.


If you are using an NFS with your board then you can do everything inside the rootfs folder of your convenience.  Download the code from the web site and untar it:


$ cd /home/b35153/ltib110/ltib/rootfs/root

$ wget

$ tar -xzvf Qt5_CinematicExperience_rpi_1.0.tgz


This will create a folder called Qt5_CinematicExperience_rpi_1.0,  go inside of it  and run qmake && make.


$ cd Qt5_CinematicExperience_rpi_1.0

$ qmake && make

Then you are ready to run the demo.


If you are in linux only

$ ./Qt5_CinematicExperience


If you are in X11


$ ./Qt5_CinematicExperience -platform qt-xcb

if you are in Wayland


$ ./$ ./Qt5_CinematicExperience -platform wayland-egl
