How to setup Hybrid's OpenGL ES for Nokia series60 on S

I ave downloaded Hybrid’s implementation of OpenGL ES for Series60. I would like to run the example program in a Symbian emulator.

  1. What else do I need other than Hybrid’s implementation ?

  2. Which version of Symbian OS do I need to install ?

  3. Do I need to download anything from Nokia’s website ?


Also if possible please provide the links for Symbian OS & Nokia SDK downloads.

Thank you!

You’ll need the Series 60 SDK, version 1.2, Nokia Edition available here:

After you’ve successfully installed the SDK, please see the faq.txt included in the Gerbera package for further instructions.


The FAQ.txt says:
"Q: Where should I put the libGLES_CM.dll and libGLES_CM.lib to link
against them?

A: If you are compiling for the Symbian emulator copy both the files



\Symbian\6.1\Series60\Epoc32\Release\wins\udeb (debug build)
\Symbian\6.1\Series60\Epoc32\Release\wins\urel (release build)"

There is no “bin\series60\wins\udeb” directory in the implementation only “bin\series60\wins\urel”

Can i just use the urel ?


There is clearly an error in the FAQ. You can and should use the libraries in the urel folder.


For a “Hello World” program and how to get started with Nokia Series60 SDK, below is a good place to start.

I was able to run the examples provided by the SDK but when I do the “bldmake bldfiles” command on the Gerbera Series60 sample it takes forever to build a “ABLD.BAT” file. My DOS prompt does not return. why is that ?


I tried the following and it worked for me:
1- from the command prompt go to the directory where you have the eglsymbian.cpp
2- type: makmake eglsymbian.mmp VC6
then enter. This should create eglsymbian.dsw workspace
3- start VC6 and open the workspace then compile the project
4- you can now run the project from inside VC IDE or you can just run the emulator from the the Windows Start menu
5- you should find the eglsymbian icon in the emulator window
Hope this helps
