Raspberry Pi PySide Minimal Image | Perfect for GUIs

Wed Jan 27, 2016 10:39 pm

Here is an image I have created to get people quickly into creating a Python GUI on the Raspberry Pi.

Features:
- Stripped down Raspbian Jessie (image size is 890MB)
- Based on my Jessie Minimal Image
- Boots directly to Python example GUI written using PySide
- Runs bare bones Xorg
- Uses OpenBox as simple window manager
- Disabled keyboard shortcuts in OpenBox
- Runs under user Pi for better security
- Boots into GUI in approx 8 seconds
- Quiet boots into GUI (no console text etc)

All info and latest version download link at my blog post below!

Hi Matt,
Thank you for posting this!
I followed your instructions and all worked well.
Opening 'main.py' shows me enough of the mechanics to be a fabulous starting point into Pyside/Qt.
