I've had a look there and it seems there is a misunderstanding.
Applications developed in Qt should not need to be recompiled for each
When a car manufacturer design their own UI/UX, an application designed on
the reference MeeGo-IVI platform will work and will take the specific style
of the car manufacturer.
Works the same with Qt between applications made for the desktop platforms
and running on Windows/OSX and Linux.
"*Qt automatically uses the native desktop style for an application’s look
and feel. Qt applications respect user preferences for colors, fonts,
sounds, and other desktop settings."*
It would make sense to adopt the same process in MeeGo, differentiating the
styles based on the usage:
MeeGo-IVI, MeeGo-Handset, MeeGo-Tablet, MeeGo-Netbook styles.
Vendors (car manufacturers) could then modify the default MeeGo-IVI style to
their liking, making sure that the apps would run with their own
Some more details about the session Rudolf ran at the MeeGo Conference:
Was there myself and brought a bit of clarity, even though there is still a
lot of work to do.
