Qt Quick 2 on ARM embedded linux without GPU

  • Is Qt Quick 2 on ARM embedded linux possible without a GPU? I realize performance will likely not be great, but it seems like there should be some combination of components to allow this -- Mesa? DirectFB? need X11 or Wayland? I don't know what to use or which configuration options to employ. Anyone have any experience getting this kind of setup working? It feels like trying to put together a puzzle with too many pieces.

  • Quick 2 requires OpenGL by default so your choices are either a software rasterizer (like Mesa llvmpipe) - these may not perform too well on low-powered ARM devices - or an alternative solution like the upcoming Qt Quick 2D renderer. That's commercial-only though.
