The foundation for many embedded graphical display implementations

Ubuntu Frame is an easy-to-use, reliable and secure display server for embedded Linux devices allowing developers to deploy graphic applications for kiosks, digital signage, IoT, robotics and more.

With Ubuntu Frame, the graphic application you choose or design gets a fullscreen kiosk window. It enables windows behaviours, input from touch, keyboard, and mouse, on-screen keyboard, power saving and more.

Ubuntu Frame streamlines the build and development of products that need graphical output.


  • Create maintainable images for kiosks and digital signage solutions in under an hour.
  • Out of the box features such as kiosk mode, on-screen keyboard and power saving for your devices.
  • Less code for you to integrate and maintain as it bundles communication protocols, input protocols, and security policies into a single kit
  • Compatible with popular toolkits for creating graphical user interfaces like Qt, Flutter, electron, and also html5 and java.
  • Built-in security and long-term supported by Canonical.

If you want to enable Ubuntu Frame's on-screen keyboard, please install ubuntu-frame-osk: https://snapcraft.io/ubuntu-frame-osk

To get started with Ubuntu Frame please read the documentation: https://mir-server.io/docs

Ubuntu Frame is open source, free to use, and long-term supported by Canonical, and will continue to be our recommended way to enable embedded graphics on Ubuntu Core.
