Installing Qtopia on Linux/x86

There is no x86 binary demo version of Qtopia 1.4.0, however the previous version, 1.3.1 still makes an excellent demonstration.

The Linux/x86 demo works both on the Linux framebuffer and under X11 (using the Qt Virtual Framebuffer).

If you are running X11 then the Qt Virtual Framebuffer will appear. This is just a dumb frame buffer. Qt/Embedded handles all drawing, window management, etc.

If you have the Linux framebuffer configured (16 or 32 bits per pixel) and you start the demo from the console, the Qtopia will use the framebuffer.
