You are able to integrate Chromium into your image to get a graphics-accelerated browser on your i.MX8.
Set up your build-directory with these settings:
DISTRO=karo-xwayland MACHINE=<machine> source karo-setup-release.sh -b <build-dir>
Inside your build directory append this line to conf/local.conf:
CORE_IMAGE_EXTRA_INSTALL += "chromium-ozone-wayland"
Build our Weston image:
When your build has finished, flash your module with the image. See UUU - Universal Update Utility.
When booting your previously flashed module, the Weston comes up.
Plug a USB-hub into your StarterKit’s USB host port and insert keyboard, mouse and/or touchscreen.
Open the terminal (icon in top-left corner), or connect via the Terminal from your host computer.
The desktop comes up as user root, so you have to start Chromium with an extra argument.
