  4. Hey

    I followed your steps in:
    to build my own application.

    I have this qml file:
    import QtQuick 2.0
    import QtQuick.Controls 1.2

    ApplicationWindow {
    visible: true
    menuBar: MenuBar {
    Menu { title: qsTr("File")
    MenuItem { text: qsTr("Exit"); onTriggered: Qt.quit(); }

    But when I click on the MenuBar the program aborts with:
    "EGLFS: OpenGL windows cannot be mixed with others."

    You got any ideas?

    1. Never mind found the problem to be a Qt bug
