Without doubt, you want to kick the tires of these components. If you don’t have a place to install MeeGo Tablet UX image (highly recommended e.g. for the popular Lenovo Ideapad), you can now (thanks to Antonio Aloisio, who did the packaging) install the components on your trusty old Ubuntu workhorse (currently tested on Maverick).
Do this to add the Forum Nokia Qt PPA:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:forumnokia/fn-ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install meegoux-components
If everything goes as planned, you should be able try the widgetgallery example:
Either get it from git:
git clone git://gitorious.org/meego-ux/meego-ux-components.git
Or from the repo:
sudo apt-get install meegoux-components-examples
Note that if you get it from git, you will need to edit the example code a bit (comment out some offending lines) because of the old Qt version in Maverick. Required modifications should be obvious.
