    Why are these demos always with disabled theming? Is it not yet possible possible with Wayland or do the demonstrators just not care?
    I noticed in recent testing of Ubuntu Precise packaging that theming started working on its own.

    Because I just haven't taken the time to look into how to do it. By all means enlighten me, and I'll give it a try in my next video.

    This already works in XWayland. It listens for any network calls on the X protocol, and automatically starts X and passes the app to it.

    i know my previous post was wrong in a way

    i should have rephrased my previous comment into something like "if _ insert random apps_ work, people will start to use it" but i was lazy and didn't do it

    Gnome-settings-manager is not necessary to use a gtk+ theme. It's merely bad design by Ubuntu to do it that way.

    I THINK that has something to do with the fact gnome-settings-manger isn't running... I'm not sure if it even runs on Wayland yet...

    once Libre, Browsers and media players start working i think we ll see greater adoption of WL

    great work from the guy that made the video

    why would there be any themes installed, or configured?
