Zybo Z710 get linux GUI working from the provided petalinux project



Can someone show me how to enable a GUI for the petalinux project available here: https://github.com/Digilent/Petalinux-Zybo-Z7-10

I changed it to have an external rootfs on the SD card and activated the matchbox desktop session in the rootfs configuration, but when it boots I get the following error:

# matchbox-desktop

** (matchbox-desktop:1242): WARNING **: Cannot open display:


Not sure how to get the HDMI display working...

looks like you need to run it and specify the frame buffer to use. I haven't figured out how to get it to do this on startup yet, but I got a gui on screen now.


FRAMEBUFFER=/dev/fb xinit /usr/local/bin/matchbox-desktop
