  2. Add a reposity containing libjpeg-turbo following the following instructions http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?t=64725&p=476810
  3. Raspian: sudo apt-get install qtcreator libboost-mpi1.46 ffmpeg libjpeg-turbo-tools
    Ubuntu: sudo apt-get install xorg openbox cmake-curses-gui libjpeg-turbo8-dev libjpeg-turbo8 ffmpeg openmpi-bin  build-essential qtcreator libqtcore4 libqtgui4 libqt4-dev libboost-all-dev ffmpeg libavcodec-dev libavformat-dev libswscale-dev git python-qt3 python-qt-dev python-qt4 libsdl1.2-dev libpythonqt2-dev libpythonqt2.0
  4. Checkout Displaycluster from https://github.com/TACC/DisplayCluster
  5. Follow the instructions in the manual.pdf
  6. Adjust /etc/hosts on the primary display node so the names of the slave nodes resolve to their ip addresses
  7. Install DisplayCluster on all nodes
  8. Adjust the /opt/displaycluster/configuration.xml file to represent the layout of your cluster
  9. On the master node type /opt/displaycluster/bin/startdisplaycluster
