"In the upcoming GTK+2.0 release, GTK+ will support rendering
directly to the framebuffer instead of using the X Window System.
This is good for embedded systems such as PDAs and other systems
with very limited resources, because they are able to run without
the overhead of an X server while still taking advantage of the
power of GTK+ and the large base of existing programs. This
whitepaper describes how GTK+ for the Linux framebuffer works, its
advantages and limitations, how it fits into the environment, and
how to obtain the software."
"GTK+ is a graphical user interface toolkit that lets you write
modern, easy to use applications. It was originally written for use
with the X Window System, but the 2.0 release supports several
other windowing systems. The port described in this whitepaper, the
framebuffer port (or sometimes just GtkFB), runs without any
external windowing system. Instead, the framebuffer port runs
straight on the Linux framebuffer device."
