SciTech SNAP Adds Support for QT/Embedded

Does this mean that we can replace /usr/X11R6 with snap and QT for our GUI?
That would be really cool
Yes, you can run QT/Embedded as your GUI, even without SNAP. Of course, without SNAP, you only get a dumb framebuffer (in other words, very slow graphics). This also means you can only run QT apps, not anything that needs X11. This makes sense for many embedded applications. For general usage, you would probably want to use our X11 SNAP drivers.
