Creating non-versioned shared libraries for android

While porting QGIS to android using necessitas I encountered the problem of versioned libs. Android does not support versioned libs and it is not going to. In the first vesions I used rpl -R -e libqgis_core.so.1.9.90 „libqgis_core.sox00x00x00x00x00x00x00“ $APK_LIBS_DIR and similar hacks to remove the version from the libs. But it was rather hacky. Then I found […]

This means as well that translations and crs databases now work properly. The gui works nice beside some small glitches. […]

QGIS on Android has a proper GUI

Today I managed to get QGIS to load all the icons, providers and plugins. The GUI looks very good and quick, it is easy to use with the finger, beside the small arrows hiding multiple icons. Furthermore I discovered that customization works so that we could pre configure qgis to show bigger icons (as in […]

QGIS on Android

Hi all, it is a pleasure to announce that I finally got Quantum GIS to start on an android (3.2) tablet (Asus transformer). I tested as well on a Samsung Galaxy phone with cyanogen mod 7 RC1 and it works a well (with the obvious screen size limitations). Qgis still doesnt load many elements, but […]
