The platform security model of Symbian requires applications (including Qt applications) to have certain "capabilities" before they are allowed to use sensitive functionality.
Basic capabilities - approved by the end user
- Location (from S60 3rd FP2)*
Applications that require only basic capabilities can be distributed with a self-signed certificate.
Applications using these capabilities require approval by Symbian Signed.
Open signed online
- Location (before S60 3rd FP2)*
Adding Capabilities to Project
To extend capabilities edit .pro file of the project and specify the capabilities at TARGET.CAPABILITY.
Example: Adding location capabilities to a Qt application for Symbian
symbian:TARGET.CAPABILITY += Location
