[meta-freescale] Qt5 using the DORA branch

I think the line DISTRO_FEATURES_remove = "x11 wayland" 

is needed to remove x11 and wayland 


I also would suggest you to start again with a fresh build.

When I did do that it did work for me using this method:


Download the meta-qt5 layer in your sources folder:

git clone https://github.com:dora/meta-qt5/meta-qt5.git


In the build/conf/bblayer.conf file add:

${BSPDIR}/sources/meta-qt5 \

${BSPDIR}/sources/meta-openembedded/meta-ruby \             (not sure if
this one is needed)


In local.conf add: 

IMAGE_INSTALL_append = " kernel-modules fontconfig freetype qtbase
qtbase-plugins qtbase-tools qtbase-fonts cinematicexperience" 

DISTRO_FEATURES_remove = "x11 wayland" 


bitbake core-image-minimal


I did get an error about the
sources/meta-qt5/recipes-devtools/cmake/cmake_2.8.12.1.bbappend file 

and because dora has cmake i decided to delete
cmake_2.8.12.1.bbappend to make it build.


deploy the image on your target


Start the Qt5 Demo:

Qt5_CinematicExperience -platform eglfs &


For the touch screen support in Qt:


Load your touch screen driver and:


export QT_QPA_EVDEV_TOUCHSCREEN_PARAMETERS=/dev/input/event2   (adjust
to your situation)

export QT_QPA_EGLFS_HIDECURSOR=1                        (remove the
mouse cursor)


With kind regards.
