@possy I don't know why it still only displays a black screen on your device. I uninstalled any extra Qt -dev or -dbg pkgs on my N900 and all works.

@tschak what other platforms? at the moment I can produce an app for Qt on linux, windows and Maemo, haven't tried for Symbian or Meego yet

src avail here if anyone wants to look quickorb.tgz - 304.4 KB

-Coley.

p.s. deb updated in orig post http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=10214.msg79637#msg79637

Another small update.
The package should now know about its dependencies - requires mcsp, and libqtm-11. (on N900)
Additions:
- simple clock date/time displayed on home screen.
- I got qml working with some of the sensors offered by QtMobility. QML bindings to QtMobility are improving all the time :)
The application can now know the orientation of the device - for example placing the device face down could be used to trigger events e.g. do not disturb when watching/listening to media.
- Added sample thermostat sliders - atm I only display two for illustration. I had hoped to have a flickable row of them, but my height calculations are going screwy when its a list of them and they come out all squished, need to revisit.
The same component could just as easily be adapted for light dimmers.
- There is a txt reading of the Accelerometer output, this could potentially allow a device so equipped to be used as a gyroMouse, Bluetooth in QML bindings only starting in QtMobility1.2TP so not going near that yet - but its a future possibility. Alternatively entirely possible now to expose these readings via Qt framework and some c++.

All of the above is written using QtQuick so whatever devices in the future will support QML this kind of stuff can drop straight onto them.

Fantastic :)

can we get the source regularly so that some of us can compile it elsewhere? ;)

@possy - I guess you want it a step further to install the needed dependencies as opposed to just warning in the app manager? I can check that out. Was wary of that as QtMobility1.1 is only in dev repo atm.

@tschak - could I check the src into svn? under a /people directory?

coley,

I am dumb :) so yes, I would want to have it install its dependencies automatically.

@Coley,

Thank you very much for developing this and taking LMCE again 1 step further.
Since i am very curious as how the whole thing looks when using this and i can imagine other too,
could you please make a youtube video from what you got so far,
kind of like a teaser ;)

thanks again,
br,
Raymond

Sorry for the delay in getting this up there. You can grab my initial efforts here.
http://svn.linuxmce.org/svn/people/coley/quickorb

Any suggestions are welcome or if you have difficulty getting it operational just shout, mind you it doesn't do a huge lot :)

-Coley.

@possy - I haven't figured out the wonders of debian pkging yet so it still doesn't install the dependencies.

@RayBe - no video or pics yet sorry, as soon as I get a chance I'll generate something.

Some screenshots for the one's that want to see this. Unfortunately i could not get a screencast to show video on playback.

All praise to coley to start this off.

This is the main menu, it's like a wheel that you can drag around



Here are more menu items



Clicking the top bar opens it, just like current smart phones do



Lighting and contact do nothing yet, but clicking Music gives the front album art



Now if you click on this album art, the picture rotates vertically 180 degree so you can see the back of the album.
The list on the right is scrollable, just click and drag to see all titles



Clicking the Video menu button gives a list that is scrollable top to bottom, click and drag



Hvac menu gives two sliding bars to adjust temperature



Webadmin button, pulls up webadmin, i could put in my username and pass and get to the main screen as shown



That's it, i'll try again to make a screencast of it working, not sure what makes it a transparent video after capture.

Very nice Coley although you'll say it's not much, it's a step in the right direction.

Richard

Great work rperre... the album flip is slick.

I think once golgoj4 and I catch up, we can collaborate on something much needed for the project. Way to get the ball rolling coley. Very exciting stuff.
I never quit... I just ping out.

Thanks for putting those up, the menu on the left scrolls up and down, items wrap. there should be a hvac option too, when clicked displays adjustable stats.
