    Default GNOME Display Settings Now Working On Wayland

    Phoronix: GNOME Display Settings Now Working On Wayland

    In addition to the Hawaii Weston Shell update and better touch input support on Weston, there's some more good news for Wayland: the GNOME Display Settings is now working on Wayland via a new Dbus interface...

    And if only GNOME was usable it would actually be relevant.

    With Red Hat these days maintaining large parts of Gnome as well as KScreen (KDE display configuration, http://ltinkl.blogspot.com/ ), I hope the designed XRandR-based protocol becomes a cross desktop standard in the Wayland world (and possibly even Ubuntu if Canonical used the same protocol).

    This new DBus interface for GNOME display configuration is modeled around the X.Org RandR extension but in a simplified form.

    It would be cool if once in a while, people agreed to a damn standard, and would not make endless variations around it that causes so much code duplication between different projects...

    Hold your horses because there are still things missing from the wayland protocol. And Gnome (or anyone else for the matter) can't do anything about them. It's getting there though.

    People, please, get involved and make more FreeDesktop standards, and do follow them so that everybody lives happily and can make simple software that doesn't need to pull a full desktop environment. IMO, so far, the LXDE guys (and gals?) got it right.

    Now if we could only get Firefox and/or Chromium on Wayland...
