    Default GNOME 3.10 Gets Photos App, Clutter On Wayland

    Phoronix: GNOME 3.10 Gets Photos App, Clutter On Wayland

    The GNOME 3.9.4 development release was made available this week with many changes to its desktop stack ahead of the official GNOME 3.10 release in September. With this release, GNOME is in better shape when running with Wayland...

    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?
