    Phoronix: Playing With GTK/Qt5/SDL/EFL On Wayland 1.2

    The Wayland LiveCD has been updated against the new Wayland/Weston 1.2 release. This Linux LiveCD also ships with the Wayland-enabled GTK3, Qt5, SDL, and Enlightenment EFL tool-kits for easily trying out this next-generation Linux display stack...

    Nice, a reduced .iso! Only 1 gig.

      Damn, it isn't even released on fridays!
      Anyway, it is good that so much toolkits start working with Wayland.

        If the iso freezes in VirtualBox on bootloader menu, enable PAE in VM options. Works ok in framebuffer mode.

          Yeah, KMS (nouveau) didn't work (unresponsive dimmed screen), framebuffer did but was slow.

          I was hoping to see an option to try KWin since it has a wayland back-end now.

            I don't see how to test anything, there's just a toolbar above with unrelated functionality.

              For me, it hanged at the login screen. I realised that after I patiently waited for the auto login timeout to disappear. Better luck next time, I hope.

                What kind of hardware do you have? Intel? Nvidia?
                The autologin calls up a second weston server on a new tty.

                  Those are launchers for the wayland/xwayland programs...

                    I can only see login/logout/restart and other session management buttons, no visible way of launching an app.

                      Same here. Running on nouveau (GeForce 560Ti).

                        It looks to me the autologin didn't work? Weston should switch the tty?
                        Can you try to switch ttys? Go to tty1 and then tty10, that's usually the tty that the autologin session actually appears on.

                        Try running
                        Code:
                        ps -A | grep weston
                        in tty1 too. how many weston-display-servers do you see?

                          I have nVidia as well, so it's nouveau (I guess?). I think we are all having the same issue here. Do you want more feedback?

                              Nothing, just the options we were talking about in tty8.

                              Just one weston-display-server (and one weston-keyboard, weston-desktop)

                              R,
