As of 2018-11-16, PELUX 3.0 has been released! Documentation can be found here.

Main features


  • Version number: 3.0
  • Yocto release: sumo
  • Qt version: 5.11


  • Adaptation to Yocto “Sumo” 2.5
  • Integration with Qt 5.11
  • Neptune 3 UI

Known issues

  • When running the QtAS versions of the platform, there are no ttys allocated on the terminal. To get a terminal, ssh to the target. If you don’t know the IP address of your target, use arp-scan to search for it on your network. You can also select the Qt button at the bottom right corner of the home screen and scroll down to see the IP address.
  • Rasperry Pi 3 (Qt Auto Neptune variant):
    • There are widgets and applications which are not functional. A workaround is to force the UI into single process mode. Add argument --force-single-process to neptune3-ui in the unit file for the neptune service. You can either edit source file sources/meta-pelux/layers/b2qt/recipes-qt/automotive/neptune3-ui/neptune.service before building the image, or login to target via ssh and edit file /lib/systemd/system/neptune.service followed by a reboot.
    • The Neptune 3 UI is not running as smoothly as the former Neptune UI on Rasperry Pi 3, but on NUC it’s not an issue.
