    Question Audio User Interface


    I've been wondering about the possibility of creating an AUI for use in an embedded system,
    but with enough portability to be used on any modern linux system.

    The best information I've found so far is on this website, but I
    would prefer it to be more flexible, simpler and not reliant on
    the internet at all. So that it could be easily rewritten for a
    variety of systems.
    audiouserinterface.org

    The issue that concerns me the most is how an X-Windows environment such as
    KDE could be replaced with an audio user environment.

    I'm also wondering if I should use python to create the first
    few prototypes of this interface and then translate it to C?

    Since this is such a vague question I am not expecting some perfect in depth technical answer,
    so any contributions are greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in Advance.

    In the website you linked, he seems to use no X at all. I think he wrote or modified software so that it can be operated with the wheel knob only.

    okay...

    Thanks for the reply,
    I know my wording in my initial post was off a little bit. What I meant to ask was how to go about creating an audio environment to replace x.

    Alright, I'm gonna start working on a prototype for this project using python, during whatever spare time I can find. If I'm lucky I'll post
    some results in a few months. Meanwhile, I invite anyone who encounters this post to submit their ideas.
    Thanks.
