Hi Gustavo , all ,

Thanks for the info, this seems a huge effort , not sure if this : could 
serve you any help :
Came across this, but did not dive into it.

There are so many dependencies and there is always to a chance to break 
something else
that depends on these.
I want a fullscreen html5 (+ websockets ) capable browser,and a virtual 
(matchbox-keyboard) that pop-ups when the focus is in a text field .....

I tried the qt5-kiosk package ,but for some reason is very slow.
(platform is imx6 dual lite  )
I did run the Qt5-cinematice experience demo, and that runs smooth, it 
seems to push
the GPU to its limits , yielding a GPU too hot warning, but it proves 
graphical accel. is working.

So i am wiling to test-drive if you have something to play with.

Best Regards,  Johan
