[Marble-devel] HOWTO (in progress) - build a libmarble application on windows with Qt Creator, MinGW, CMake

I works!
Enfin... not completly..
I mean I succeed to build and launch my libmarblewidget dependent
application without error/crash (at least not depending on marble :) )!!
So here the trick : "mingw32-make *release*" !
the release build does not return error when we launch it!


The marble widget in my app is just a black rectangle where right and left
clicks work as usual ( contextual menu etc)
Like with the standalone marble application => NO map! instead of being blue
it is black...
I think it is normal as it does not work in marble itself.
So again : ANYONE having a clue??

One other thing :
marble's widget do not show in Qt designer while the make install stage did
libMarbleWidgetPlugin.dll,  libMarbleNavigatorPlugin.dll and
in C:\Qt\2010.02.1\qt\plugins\designer.
(I added this path in Qtdesign even if it is a bit dumb but widgets still
I don't know why..
So for the Qt creator integration it is not stil here.

Anyway step two, building a libmarblewidget application passed!
Here is the way (i will not put it on the techbase untill I don't see
openstreetmap map in my app):
modify your .pro to fits windows' paths like this:
win32 {
    INCLUDEPATH += $$quote(C:/Program Files/marble/include/marble)
    LIBS += $$quote(C:/Program Files/marble/libmarblewidget.dll)
unix {
    LIBS += -L/usr/local/lib \
run "qmake"
run "mingw32-make *release*"
It should be trivial in Qtcreator to build too.

After that the next step is the integration in Qt creator/designer (perhaps
some Qt/Nokia guys are hanging here..)

So now I am waiting from people for some help with those remaining issues.
