    Re: Who wants to test MIR?

    You get 3 different client applications installed as dependancies of mir, my results are as follows...

    First switch to a TTY.

    Code:
    (sleep 5; mir_demo_client_accelerated) & mir ; kill $!
    Segfaults after reporting 'Surface created'.

    Code:
    (sleep 5; mir_demo_client_unaccelerated) & mir ; kill $!
    Segfaults after reporting 'Surface created'.

    Code:
    (sleep 5; mir_demo_client) & mir ; kill $!
    Runs without reporting any errors and exits cleanly, but nothing is displayed on screen.

    I've had about 3 lots of upgrades to the relevant packages since adding the PPA yesterday, I'll report back when any new upgrades alter my results.

    This commands should work with just using PPA? I see XMir was added to PPA. XMir would/will allow something like running (current) Unity or other apps without Mir support that uses Xorg on top of Mir.

    and has been in development for 5 years, why not simply grab their code and fork it, modify, strip it etc... ?
    The short answer is - Canonical can not control the further development of wayland but with 'Mir' they can do what they want.

    Maybe they learned from their Gnome experience.

    I actually got the first line of code to run!! It is just like in the video demo.

    Edit:

    Ok .. on the Xmir I forgot to upload this first.

    it was really wierd. Mir is still loaded and I had to log in manually (without reboot) back to crtl+alt+F7, then sudo start lightdm and now I got this weird black screen with the unity panel on the side. Stuff is happening!!! hehehehe

    This second option produces a square light blue box at top-left screen that is flashing at a very high rate and it looks like there is a figure in there if some sort.
