Arch Linux Enables Wayland GTK+
Written by Michael Larabel in Operating Systems on 19 March 2013 at 11:38 AM EDT. 7 Comments
For those Arch Linux users looking to play with Wayland/Weston, the GTK+ package available within the distribution now enables support for the Wayland back-end.

GTK+3 has Wayland support that has to be configured at build-time but can dynamically switch from being used on an X11 Server or Wayland or the other supported tool-kit back-ends. The Arch package maintainers have now approved building GTK+ with the Wayland support.

Confirmation can be found from this Arch bug report.
