I am trying to get documentation files for MiniGUI and other components, but the some of the PDF files in the english version of the website are also in chinese. Maybe this is just a simple problem, of linking the wrong files.
If that can be fixed, would be great.
Thank you,

Please add the V3.0 MiniGUI manual link to the documentation page. It presently is absent.

May I have enquiry on MiniGUI license.

I have read the license policy and have question in following statement.
"As long as you never distribute (internally or externally) the MiniGUI and/or mDolphin in any way, you are free to use it for powering your application, irrespective of whether your application is under GPL license or not."

I am developing program for my embedded Linux system. It is a machine with LCD display. We are not distributing software. It is just inside our machine. Can we use GPL license in such case?

Best regards,

when i compile the qvfb ./configure 'checking for libXext... no
configure: error: We need a working libXext to proceed. Since configure
can't find it itself, we stop here assuming that make wouldn't find
them either.' but there is in /usr/lib/

Our company (APIS Slovakia) try to develop firmware with graphic user interface for Access Control Systems. Is it possible to download "mDolphin Home Release" only for test purposes.

Thank you

we are using ministudio version 1.0 for creating gui using drag n drop approach,we created a plain form but we are not able to put any bmp ,png , jpeg or any image over that form , we are able to export that image but we are not able to switch it back to guibuilder menu to see form, for further development.
Please reply with steps to load image in ministudio ASAP.

Hello.There is a question about minigui. Is it possible to rotate image by 270 or 90 degree? It's very important for our project. We'd like to use an lcd in portrait orientation,but lcd is meant to use in landscape orientation. The platform is based on stm32f429 controller.
