wxWidgets for Embedded linux

Post by shifan » Mon Jan 11, 2021 7:31 am

Hi,
I have following questions. I am new to wxWidgets

Can wxWdigets be used with embedded linux (not the desktop linux). if yes, what is the port used? is it wxEmbedded, where can we find the documentation of wxEmbedded
What are the hardware requirements?

Hi,
Are plan to run X11/GNOME or KDE? Will you use Wayland?

Thank you.

Can you explain a bit more which (kind of) device you're targeting? Does it have a screen or not? If yes, can it run X11, GTK? What kind of CPUs? How much RAM?

I had never heard of wxEmbedded before, but based on the Google results, it's long abandoned.
Use the source, Luke!

It's my question too.
Based on my searches I found wxdirectfb (wxdfb) which uses framebuffer directly or wxQt which interfaces to Qt (so you can use Qt linuxfb or EGL), but I don't know how much usable are these ports.

Hi,
Both of those ports are not very usable - wxDFB probably a little more.

Thank you.
