Howto build and install graphical application to emulator (code from Nokia). First create a directory for the code. Get the code source. Compile and build .deb package.
mkdir -p MaemoHello cd MaemoHello sb2 -eR apt-get update sb2 apt-get source hello-world-app cd hello-world-app-2.1 export SBOX_REDIRECT_FORCE=/usr/bin/perl sb2 dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -d -b
Abovementioed SBOX_REDIRECT_FORCE environment variable is needed if perl libraries is needed (Bug in roostraps) The .deb package will be created in the MaemoHello directory. Next install the package to emulator.
sb2 -eR dpkg -i hello-world-app_2.1_armel.deb
To run the emulator:
maemo-sdk start gui
The emulator can be stopped with:
maemo-sdk stop gui
The program has many parts (check README), but the main application code can be found from hello-world.c (main function to start the application) and libhelloworld.h and .c (graphical features of the main application).
