Description Wes 2016-07-24 01:30:43 UTC
Currently dev-qt/qtgui doesn't account for Qt's LinuxFB support, which probably matters more to embedded platforms than desktop.  Enabling it is trivial however and I feel it's time we did

Reproducible: Always

This is a diff between the in-tree qtgui-5.5.1 and my local linuxfb enabled one.  I think this should be the same for enabling it in later versions of qtgui as well:

I'm not going to apply this to 5.5.x or 5.6.x. Instead, can you submit a pull request to the qt overlay against 5.7.0 and later versions please?
Comment 2 Wes 2016-07-28 23:47:16 UTC
Sure, I'll test it with 5.7.0 and PR this weekend, thanks
Comment 3 Wes 2016-08-16 04:00:52 UTC
sorry I haven't had a chance to do this yet, haven't forgotten though.  Testing locally now and will try to get a PR in tonight if work commitments permit
