+
It uses the macdeployqt tool which copies Qt and its plugins into the App Bundle.
+
macdeployqt also tells the main application to link against the libs contained in the bundle, instead of the system libs.
+
This does not happen to the libmarblewidget and the Marble plugins, so it has to be done by the script.
+
The script also sets a background Image for the dmg. (Place it at ~/Desktop/marble-dmg-background.png or change the path in the script)
+
 
+
After that you should have Marble-version.dmg on you Desktop.
