Hi,
We have developed our 'production ready' GTK3+ GUI application. We would like to use Olimex Linux Board for production. Which Olimex linux board is suggested to run our GTK3+ GUI application. Kindly suggest.

What hardware resources and Linux packages are needed for your application to run? Check if these packages are enabled in our latest Linux images for A20 and A64 boards:

Hi,
Thanks for your response. We used weston/Wayland display server to run our GTK GUI application on embedded linux, however we couldn't see weston/wayland package listed in the link you have sent.

1. We can see X11 server package in the list, we are not sure whether GTK GUI application will run on X11. Can you please confirm whether GTK will run on X11 server?

2. Is it possible to add weston/wayland display server packages to A64 package list?

3. Can you please suggest a display server which is preferable to run GUI application developed using GTK?

4. The bionic base for A64/A20 has many packages, we may not use some of packages, if we want to build only selected package, how do we build our customised image for A64/A20? can you please share the procedure to build the image with required packages.

Regards
Bala

Hello,

We have published everything about our images at GitHub - sources, instructions and more. You can find many links here:

Unfortunately, we are unable to tailor our software images to suit your needs free of charge. If you wish we can forward your work to Linux developers to tailor the images according to your needs, please contact us at support@olimex.com to discuss what it would cost.

Best regards,
