      Empathy and Evolution worked on Weston X11 backend, while only Evolution worked on DRM backend but Empathy failed with some scary error message.

      Epiphany, Devhelp and Yelp don't work at all for me.

        Clutter things need an environment variable to be set at the moment. Did you try those Webkit using applications using this version of webkit with Wayland enabled?

          It's WebKit *GTK+*, it doesn't use Clutter. I found the problem. I've managed to fix Epiphany, Yelp and Devhelp. Empathy has hidden X11 deps which need to be sorted out.

          Long story short, you have to disable accelerated compositing with a configure switch, but that is fixed and in svn for 2.1.92 release. Yelp had some hidden X11 deps too, but it was easy to patch it.

          On the other hand, Rhythmbox is listed as working on the wiki page, but I can't get it to work at all.
