I am a beginner to linux and especially embedded linux systems so bare with me. I am just trying to implement a simple python program that makes a GUI that gets info from the elkpy grpc wrapper. It seems that tkinter is not configured on this OS and I cannot seem to import it no matter what I try. I also do not know how to get other gui library packages like Qt or kivy on the Elk device as I cannot find any sort of package manager like apt.
I looked into Qt for embedded devices to develop the GUI on my desktop and then deploy it to the raspberry pi, but it seems like it is used for creating devices. I only see options to create a boot to Qt device that flashes its own image to the sd card on the raspberry pi.
All I want is a simple UI python program on the pi running Elk. I have a small touchscreen display hooked up to the dsi port of the pi and a HiFiberry HAT getting audio input from a guitar. What is the best way to make a touchscreen interface since there are no built in packages for GUI in Elk?
