@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?

My PKGBUILD works. It's enough to only install the Xwayland binary. No need to build and replace the entire X Server and risk borking your desktop. Compiles a lot faster, too.

This is while having xorg-server 1.15 still installed with the regular xf86-video-nouveau from [extra] and weston-git. Only had to patch my kernel, because someone at Canonical broke weston with this patch.

Otherwise weston-launch would stay black. With Intel and AMD open source "weston-launch --" should work out of the box.

I created a PKGBUILD that just builds the Xwayland binary.

Added NEEDED dependencies from readelf -d Xwayland to the depends array.

We should be able to only build the XWayland binary without building and replacing the entire X server.

For Fedora the xorg-x11-server-Xwayland- package also only installs /usr/bin/XWayland

We can't reuse this package though, since Fedora builds it with SELinux and it complains about missing on Arch Linux when you use the precompiled binary from Fedora.

Only building the XWayland binary would probably also allow us to drop a bunch of patches and dependencies.
