QApplication) was what was needed. And setting the widget to be visible.
That makes a window pop up with the spectrum. But for some reason the
performance is very bad.
I'm working on Qt performance in a separate branch. For now, though, if by "performance is very bad" you mean "update rate is slow", then change the line in qtgui_sink_c which says:
This will use a 20fps update rate instead of the default (strangely) 2fps.
A couple of other things. exec() does not return till the QApplication
exits. And it must be called from the main thread. At least that is the
error output I got when I tried to call it from a boost thread. To use
it I would have to redesign my application. So I probably won't be
spending any more time with it.
