    Default porting existing QtWidget app from linux to android

    Hi Qt gurus,

    I have Qt 5.5.0 installed on my linux mint 17 OS. I have installed Android SDK, NDK tools and all other requirements needed to build apps for android devices. I followed the instructions given in and I was able to build and run an example app on my android device.

    I am now trying to port an existing Qt Widget app to my android device. The app is suppose to read some raw data from an external device connected to the android microusb and show a value in a textbox. When I compiled it for "Desktop Qt 5.5.0 GCC 64 bit" kit, everything was fine and dandy.
    But when I tried to compile it for "Android for armeabi (GCC 4.9 Qt 5.5.0) it throws the following error:

    In file included from ../Qtdemo_full_demo/application.cpp:1:0:
    ../Qtdemo_full_demo/application.h:5:27: fatal error: libavs/as5216.h: No such file or directory
    #include "libavs/as5216.h"
    compilation terminated.

    libavs is an external library which gives me access to a spectrophotometer device.

    My questions are:
    1. How do I solve the error above. Is there a setting I have to tweak?
    2. Are there any step by step guides (with examples) to port existing Qtwidget program to an android device? I know that there is a "porting to android" support page and I have read it. But the guide is too general for nubes like me to understand.

    Please oh please help me. Thanks
