MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan Developer Documentation Develop for the Nokia N9

Installing Qt SDK on Mac OS X

Supported Mac OS X versions

The Qt SDK supports both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the following operating systems:

  • Apple Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard)
  • Apple Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion)


Xcode installed on your system. You can download Xcode from Apple Developer site.


  1. Download the .dmg file for the latest online Qt SDK and launch the installer. When the setup window opens, click Continue.
  2. Specify the location where you want to install the Qt SDK and select Default installation. If you have a previous version installed, click Remove old Qt Creator settings. Click Continue.
    Note: Make sure that the installation path does not include spaces.
  3. If you agree with the License Agreement, select I have read and agree... and click Continue.
  4. To proceed with the installation, click Install.
  5. To complete the installation, click Finish.

After this step, you have a functional Qt SDK installation on your workstation. To update the Qt SDK for Harmattan development, do the following:

  1. To update the Qt SDK with the MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan API target, click Help on the Qt Creator top toolbar and select Start Updater. On the Package manager tab, you can find the MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan API target from under Qt SDK > Development Tools > Harmattan > MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan. You can also select other targets, such as the Harmattan emulator (QEMU).
  2. Click Continue, then click Update.
  3. During the update, close Qt Creator if you are prompted to. Do not close the Maintain Qt SDK window.
  4. After the components have been downloaded, click Close.
The Qt SDK with the Harmattan target is now installed on the host workstation.

If you are using a Harmattan device in your development work, continue by configuring the device-to-SDK connection.

If you are not using a Harmattan device in your development work, continue by creating a project in Qt Creator.
