    Embedded GUI


    Been using Linux for development for a while now - getting familiar with gcc.

    I am soon to develop a portable device (I will be designing it with a single board PC or an ITX m/b) which I would like to run Linux on (speed and stability). This will include a touch screen. Does anyone know of a project out there I can use as a learning tool to get the hang of framebuffer and touch screens?

    Also, does anyone know of a library that helps with making graphical interfaces using gcc (framebuffer mode Ė I donít want to run X11 due to lack of resources and speed)? In the old days when I used dos for such a thing, I had a library where I could do create_window(posx,posy,sizex,sizey), etc and place_button(posx,posy). Very simple but useful.

    Help is appreciated.

    Many thanks,

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
