This page contains information to quickly getting started with the GUI.

The first thing you need is the library installed, see Installation.

After successful installation, DAF can be run in graphical mode by executing the command daf-gui command inside the terminal.

This will open up (after a few seconds) a graphical display you can use to control the framework.
