Hello All, We have a custom application that we use at our work place and this application is like one stop for all the departments. We have desktops all over the place/departments and now we want to install 200 more, and after seeing PI, I want to use it.. Before I make that decision I need some advice from you all. I noticed an application called PiStore, the GUI is excellent, we want to develop something that looks like that and we want the pi to just run this application, like an embedded system.. Please advice us..

I will always assume you are running Raspbian for desktop and Raspbmc for XMBC !

The Qt framework has a big community and runs on the Pi with
hardware support (important !) .

• Don't like the board ? Missing features ? Change to the prosilver theme ! You can find it in your settings.
• Don't like to search the forum BEFORE posting 'cos it's useless ? Try googling : yoursearchtermshere site:raspberrypi.org

This post http://www.raspberrypi.org/archives/2768 only says 'The store runs as an X application' - could be done using almost anything...

You could try to spot the libs in the output of:
Code: Select all
apt-cache depends pistore
