Minimal Xorg for OpenCPN

Hi all,

I am trying to build a minimal Linux system for running OpenCPN - where it should be the only running GUI application, and should use 100% of the screen (1024x768) for the chart display (no titlebar, no "start menu", no window frame). I have done this in the past under SDL2, but it seems this option is no longer available? If I must run OpenCPN under X, what Xorg/WXWidgets/GTK packages do I need to install? With my current minimal set-up I can launch opencpn from XTerm, and the initial disclaimer dialog box renders as it should, but when I click "Ok", and the main application window loads, it's just a white rectangle (~800x600) with a tiny black square in the top left corner. There are no error messages in the console, only some ALSA informational messages.
