      As per: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Wayland#GTK.2B

      you need to set the GDK_BACKEND and CLUTTER_BACKEND environment variables to "wayland" then maybe

                  To fully run GNOME (so not individual applications) under Wayland, at least the following is required:
                  1. GDM running under Wayland and being able to start X sessions still
                  2. GNOME shell running under Wayland as well as X
                  3. GNOME shell Wayland being able to run X applications
                  4. XWayland needs to work properly, otherwise you're really limited in the amount of applications you can run

                  Note: Above is just the basics! There is a Wayland branch for GNOME shell, but for full support you want GNOME shell to be able to run under Wayland as well as X.

                  For real support, way more things need fixing:
                  1. Webkit under Wayland
                  2. Sub surfaces (seems to be ok now)
                  3. Wacom tablet support (poor atm, seems to need new a protocol)
                  4. All kinds of things like clipboard management, xrandr, input devices (maybe a new libevdev which can be shared across compositors and can be used by Mir), etc
                  5. colour support, should be working already

                  For individual applications, about 65% of the official GNOME applications already work under Wayland. See https://wiki.gnome.org/Wayland/Applications.

                    Speaking of which. Could someone explain the situation with wayland and login/display managers?
