I am developing a PyQT GUI to run on a BeagleBone Black and a 4D Systems 4D Systems Capacitive Touch Display - GEN4-4DCAPE-43CT-CLB, and
Because of the small screen size, I would like to set up a bare desktop with a background that I provide (i.e. get rid of the taskbar completely for now, as well as the top grey bar). I’ve noticed that PyQT will only pop up widgets/windows in the area between the top/bottom gray bars.
I’ve also tried turning off the LXQT desktop via $ sudo systemctl isolate multi-user.target
However, after this I get “cannot connect to X server :0.0” errors when I try running my GUI code.
Is there a way to create a bare desktop via configuration files?
