\section2 Specifying Run Settings for Linux-Based Devices
To run an application on a Linux-based device (embedded Linux, MeeGo
Harmattan, or Maemo), create and select a device configuration in the
\l{glossary-buildandrun-kit}{kit} that is used for building and running the project and set its
device type correspondingly.
You can also pass command line arguments to your application.

To run and debug applications on Linux-based devices, you must
create connections from the development PC to the devices. Click
\gui {Manage device configurations} to create connections. For more
information, see \l{Configuring Connections to Maemo Devices},
To run and debug an application on a Linux-based device (embedded Linux,

to kits. For more information, see

on devices that are of the same type and run the same firmware as the
connected device. For more information, see
\l{Deploying Applications to Linux-Based Devices}.
For generic embedded Linux devices, the run settings display the path to the
executable file on the development host and on the device. To specify that
another application launches your application, for example, enter the
command in the \gui {Alternate executable on device} field and select the
\gui {Use this command instead} check box.
