Qt for the Raspberry Pi
A step by step guide to set up the GUI framework
Elektor software developer and lab worker Mathias Claußen was tasked to develop a control for the FM radio on the Raspberry Pi  using a touch screen. The platform-independent (GUI) framework Qt has almost become the go-to industry standard to build such interfaces, so the choice was clear. For any developers out there facing similar challenges, Mathias has put together a manual that shows how set up a cross-compiler environment on a PC to allow you to compile Qt applications for the Raspberry Pi from a PC — he also includes a simple demo of course.
