QWidget::repaint() not working on ARM on program exit

  • Hello Qt-perts,

    I'd appreciate any suggestions on how to set a QStackedWidget view upon program exit on ARM? The code shown below works on x86 but not on ARM (using Qt 5.6 & linuxfb). No errors are generated but the repaint of the view widget does not have any effect and the last active view persists upon program exit. Any fixes and/or workarounds are appreciated.

    void DriverGui::AppShutdown() {
    // View persists after exiting so set this on the way out (works on x86 but not on ARM)

    Do you mean you would like to clear the content of your LinuxFB frame buffer on application exit ?

  • @SGaist Preferably I would like to put up a view that contains a logo image but failing that setting itl black would suffice. I didn't mention it in the post but I am looking for something that will also work with eglfs which I suspect rules out sending 0's to the frame buffer. What I really don't get is why using Widget::repaint() works in x86 and yet appears to be a nop in ARM

    What should happen to your device when your application exits ?
