QGIS android APK package:

  • Install and run the QGIS installer
  • The whole installation process takes around 10min, you will be downloading around 100+Mb of qgis + 25Mb of Qt libraries, so maybe doing it on a wifi is better.
  • you might be prompted to install Ministro II by BogDan Vatra via the market, this is the Qt libraries manager.
  • Once ministro is installed hit the back button twice to go back to qgis or start QGIS again and you will be asked if you want to install the Qt libraries. Say yes.
  • Once ministro is done, QGIS should start.

QGIS android dev setup:

example copy paste code: GITHUBUSERNAME="myNAME" GITHUBPASSWORD="myPASS" cd dev #get necessitas wget chmod +x linux-online-necessitas-alpha4.1-sdk-installer ./linux-online-necessitas-alpha4.1-sdk-installer # see below for adding a remote instead of cloning #fork QGIS curl -u "$GITHUBUSERNAME:$GITHUBPASSWORD" -i -d '' git clone$GITHUBUSERNAME/QGIS.git cd QGIS git checkout android-master cd .. #fork qqis-android curl -u "$GITHUBUSERNAME:$GITHUBPASSWORD" -i -d '' git clone$GITHUBUSERNAME/QGIS-Android.git cp QGIS-Android/scripts/config.templ QGIS-Android/scripts/config.conf nano QGIS-Android/scripts/config.conf #configure to your wishes ./QGIS-Android/scripts/ ./QGIS-Android/scripts/
