With xorg-server 1.16 released this package will conflict with xorg-server 1.16 if the Arch Linux devs deciede to add "--enable-xwayland" to the regular xorg package. In this case both packages would provide the /usr/bin/Xwayland binary.
This AUR package will then only make sense, when you want a pure Wayland system with only /usr/bin/Xwayland but not /usr/bin/Xorg. However the installed size of the xorg-server package is rather small with 3.3 MB at the moment and should grow to ~5 MB with Xwayland added. Having the regular Xorg server on the system doesn't really add any bloat.

Actually, merging.

Removing, the xwayland-git package already uses the Xorg upstream to build XWayland.

@blackout24 Amazing, it works, thank you!

Your problem is that the mutter-wayland package in the official repos did not use the XWayland DDX at that time. You can build a later snapshot just after the support was added and it will just work out of the box.

PKGBUILD for mutter-wayland


It would be great if the mutter-wayland package in [extra] could be updated to this snapshot, since it's useless otherwise but the stable repos are not for shipping development snapshots I gues.

It looks like klusark took over the package. I'd maintain it aswell if needed.

I've replaced the PKGBUILD with blackout24's and disowned again... blackout24, do you want to adopt?

I'm sorry. I have way too much to do at the moment. :/ I'll abandon the package. If you like, you can take care of it. :)

@Yukicanis Did you intend to replace this PKGBUILD with the gist-ed one? Because you haven't done that yet.

This works great for Weston, but I couldn't manage to start Gnome with Wayland from GDM. At first it was trying to launch "Xorg -wayland", which I worked around by creating a shell script wrapper to call Xwayland instead. But Xwayland refuses to start and spews "(EE) Server is already active for display 0"

Go ahead! The AUR search results for xwayland show to many different packages already. All the video-*-wayland drivers could basically deleted.

Very cool! :) May I put it here, or do you want to create a separate AUR package?
