Running Qt application without X-server on linux?



  • Dear all,

    I would like to know how can I run Qt application with running X-Window system on linux?

    I heard about that Qt can run windows system via linux frame buffer.
    Is there need to reconfigure Qt?

    Thanks



  • You should Google about Qt's "Project Lighthouse", im no guru on but Qt can indeed run graphics without X11. Also there is the possibility to run pure console applications of course.

    If it's a GUI application, can't you just install Xvfb?



  • Yes, it's a GUI application.

    I heard that it can run on virtual frame buffer directly on linux without X-Windows system

    Thanks



  • You need Qt Embedded Linux. Take a look "here":http://doc.trolltech.com/4.6/qt-embedded-install.html



  • I thought , Lighthouse meant to be for android and other embedded devices, at the moment :)
