    Phoronix: Wayland Running Various GTK Applications

    There's some more progress to report on with Wayland and Weston beyond the Wayland talks at last week's LF collab summit, including a video showing various GTK applications running within Wayland on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS...

    Unfortunately Rebecca black linux doesn't even boot on my system, it stays stuck somewhere in the middle while booting.

    Using Nvidia GTX 560Ti & ASUS MB P7P55D LX.

        Why are these demos always with disabled theming? Is it not yet possible possible with Wayland or do the demonstrators just not care?

            I don't mean window decorations. I'm wondering about the widget theme.

              why would there be any themes installed, or configured?

                Wayland is still in heavy development, and the current adoption rate is 0.
                I just pray that the mistakes of KDE4 and PulseAudio won't be repeated by distro packagers...

                  I THINK that has something to do with the fact gnome-settings-manger isn't running... I'm not sure if it even runs on Wayland yet...

                    Gnome-settings-manager is not necessary to use a gtk+ theme. It's merely bad design by Ubuntu to do it that way.

                      i know my previous post was wrong in a way

                      i should have rephrased my previous comment into something like "if _ insert random apps_ work, people will start to use it" but i was lazy and didn't do it

                      anyway if there is a way to make the X dependent apps work without the app maintainers having to do something (ie start X client automatically after the user clicks on them) and once we get the common apps running i think it will become popular.

                          This already works in XWayland. It listens for any network calls on the X protocol, and automatically starts X and passes the app to it.

                            Because I just haven't taken the time to look into how to do it. By all means enlighten me, and I'll give it a try in my next video.

                              I noticed in recent testing of Ubuntu Precise packaging that theming started working on its own.
