GUI Issues

Hi,
     We are using Beagle Board B5 with kernel 2.6.22.18 for VoIP
application.We are establishing callls between beagle board and a
desktop phone.Presently we are doing it with command line
interface.Now my next step is to develop GUI.
     The tool am using is Glade2 and GTK i compiled for arm
platform.The other dependent packages like glib ,pango ,cairo and all
i crosscompiled for arm and copied to the SD card on board.When i try
to run the executable on board by using the commands given in HRM
document ,only some lines i am getting.But we could play sample video
on TV.

Is it the problem of TV or should i enable anything while installing
GTK to get output on tv???
Or should i use an LCD monitor and HDMI to DVI-D cable???

Expecting the replies as soon as possible

Thanks
Smitha Rajan

GTK needs something to draw on I don't think that by default you will
be able to draw on
the framebuffer(search for gtk backend). It might be possible to use
GTK in other contexts but I always and only have seen it run using
using the X server as rendering backend.

Do you have a X server running on the beagle?

Or should i use an LCD monitor and HDMI to DVI-D cable???

Apparently you where able to play a video there is no reason to change
the cable.

Hello Kees,

            We are using GTK on DFB(Direct Frame Buffer).This GUI was
working fine on omap3530 in which there is builtin touch screen on
it.But it is not working on beagle board for which we are directing
teh output on to tv.

Can somebody solve this issue..???

hi,
  We are using GTK on directFB.The executable is running without any
error.So i think Beagle Board supports DirectFB.But on TV only some
lines are coming insraed of GUI..The same executable is being used in
omap 3530 board for GUI.There it is coming properly.The only differnce
is that on omap 3530 board the display is on builtin touch screen.But
in beagle we are trying to display it on tv as per the instruction in
HRM DOCUMENT.
