The foundation for many embedded graphical display implementations

Ubuntu Frame is a simple fullscreen shell (based on Wayland) used for kiosks, industrial displays, digital signage, smart mirrors, etc.

The application you choose (or provide) gets a fullscreen window (or windows) and input from touch, keyboard and mouse without needing to deal with the specific hardware. Configuration

There are three snap configuration options:

  • daemon=[true|false] enables the daemon (defaults to false on classic systems)
  • config=<options for the shell>
  • display=<options for display layout>

The configuration options are described in detail in https://github.com/MirServer/ubuntu-frame/blob/master/REFERENCE.md
