I have a headless build; which has no x11 server nor any desktop manager.
I would like to run some music applications; so I can use a small touch screen that I recently found; and I was wondering if there is a way to run an application from terminal, that launch a UI, without install the ton of packages required to run a X11 server.
My whole system run on 2 GB; I would like to use this configuration (board plus touchscreen) as controller for a midi keyboard; so I can have a stand alone synthesizer basically; and use the touchscreen to change banks, samples, midi instruments or parameters.
Not sure if this is even possible; I always ran applications via X11 on linux, but I thought that asking here may give me some ideas.
The final objective is to have the board to run connected to a midi keyboard as standalone; if I need to flash again the sd card that's fine; I can use a larger one, if there is a distribution that works for my case; otherwise I don't mind to geek out on the file system and make changes to make it happen; although I am not able to find much on the subject.
