    Re: Wayland Live CD

    Ok good to hear Cecil ....

    Just got around to trying this out ,,,,,

    On the Asus AsusK53SV i7 with the hybrid integrated graphics Nvidia 540 GT ...... it stopped on a blinking cursor top left .....
    but it would boot ok from the second menu choice - using the X display.


    _________________________


    The Acer 7730zg with nvidia 9300 m gs ....... it does go into the wayland desktop screen .....

    but ,,,,, no mouse pointer ,,,, even unplugged and re-plugged in the USB mouse
    and no keyboard functions seem to work other than ctrl + alt + f1

    keyboard is working ..... but the things for bringing up a terminal do not ..... Ctrl + Alt + t

    Re: Wayland Live CD

    In progress .... only just managed to burn the new DVD ....

    Will take some time out tonight to look at it again ... as it should be relatively quick to do
    something - once I have decided on which of the demos will run and show this of to its best.

    Would like to learn to use QT to do my own ..... have done the odd form on it before but nothing to mean anything ....

    I guess a form with push buttons on it for the demos would be good.

    Could take me some time though as I have not done anything on it for a while ......

    Anybody have any pointers as to how best to do this .... used to use python as the QT application created most of the code for it .... will look back at what I did

    https://sites.google.com/site/blende...nts/project037

    .... my memory is not so good ....

    This guy had a great blog and a good video showing the routine to create a form and make it work
    seems the video is no longer there - he mentions a book though .... may look for it afterwards

    but there are some other things on graphics and QT

    I wish I knew all that stuff, years ago when I was heavy into amateur radio I wanted to go to night school to learn programing, but craped out ! Now its too late, got CRS (cant remember stuff). The thing that got me interested was an Amiga 800XL, I subscribed to there magazine which had alot of type in programs, was alot of fun screwing with things. oh well

    Re: Wayland Live CD

    I have ODM ( one day memory ) .... thats why I record so much stuff on the computer ... and the web ..... comes in handy sometimes ....

    The good thing about loss of memory is when you look in the fridge and there is something that you bought yourself yesterday for a treat and forgot about it .....

    Ok script time ..... lets see if someone has already written one .....



    Google search

    Demos QT wayland





    Can Java and Wayland work together .... http://michael-bien.com/


    want to see a 3D desktop .... http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2076211,00.asp
    none have been successful as far as I have seen .... and there was a JS one a long time back .....

    Wonder why they failed .... ?

    Needs something similar to minority report .... loved the way they sweep a picture off onto a glass plate
    or say a android to move to somewhere else .... smooth and the user can see exactly what is happening ....

    Think thats a big thing seeing what's going where .... also spinning things around in 3D has always been good
    thats why compiz is so popular .... plus the wobbly windows .... absolutely no use whatsoever ....
    but great to move around

    Re: Wayland Live CD

    Ok a simple script .... just to run 3 things .... as a start to make sure things work

    Code:
    #! /bin/bash
    # script to run clock gradients then puzzle one after the other
    cd /usr/local/bin
    ./puzzle
    ./gradients
    ./clock
    copy the above text into gedit

    save as s1.sh

    chmod u+x s1.sh

    To run it ... ensure that you are in the right directory .... where s1.sh is located

    ./s1.sh


    after you close one program the next one will run ..... simple as ..... works in X ok
    but the close option is not there in Wayland ..... so how do we add a border to a
    frame - and have the close button ...... or to right click on the running window
    to get to close it .....


    This works in the Wayland window ..... from E17 ...... if you want to try it - but this will go
    after you remove the DVD ......
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install e17

    then run the command below in the wayland terminal the window stays inside
    of the wayland desktop .... so I am presuming it is using wayland .... will post a video shortly

    elementary_test VIDEO in WAYLAND


    Is it possible to create the Wayland Desktop ..... from the existing Blender 3D Space

    We could do loads with this as a community .... the next stage in Desktops - proper 3D and as computers get
    better everyone would be able to use it ..... as we are looking towards the future for Wayland to develop.


    QT already seems to be set up for this too .... to an extent .... watching this video - would love to transfer this into
    an operational wayland desktop ... and use 3D items as links to programs or applications too ....

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...v=VvQ_NHKtHwE#!

    Gedit works on Intel, but not on virtualbox for me... strange.

    Kate and KDE are using QT 4.8, when I'm compiling QT 5... Although I think I have a test that MIGHT get 4.8 to work... ...Might... probably won't.

    EDIT: Nope, its seems that there will be binary compatibility issues because of QPA...
    Ok now understanding the need for QT5

    Nice readings Keith, have you come up with anything new like...wayland arch' haha !

    I had another crash here, I think it was the power supply plug that went to the second HD was flaky, the light would come on and if I touched it would get real bright and then dim, weird !
    Changed to a bigger one and seems to be OK now, I did lose alot of my os's though.

    Wayland is in the AUR if somebody wanted to try it on Arch.

    Hi Chuck, I tried it awhile back and it had errors and I gave up, thought maybe Keith would be better at it since he was interested in QT and wayland.

    I might give it another shot (in the dark), Im not so good at it.

    You should be a whiz at it

    Since I settled on Arch & Gnome shell it's all pretty boring, leaves me time for other things.
