I was wondering if there was an application (linux) that lets you display an image overlay on top of the linux framebuffer. I have been porting the script that uses this to different platforms but I have not found any other programs that displays images to the framebuffer.
I have been looking to get this feature working on ODROID and/or Ubuntu. I would love a more universal option but if there are different programs per platform I could adjust the script i'm working on as needed.
On the Raspberry Pi there is pngview which uses Dispmanx to display png files directly to the framebuffer (https://github.com/AndrewFromMelbourne/raspidmx/tree/master/pngview).
Here is a picture of pngview in action: https://imgur.com/a/J9iek (top left hand corner)
