    Re: Who wants to test MIR?

    I have lighdm and terminal but cannot get Unity desktop, gnome-fallback or Cairo-Dock. Luckily I had already installed fvwm-crystal and I am on that desktop with FF atm. The mir ppa and files appear to be borked also and it is holding back a kernel.

    Edit:

    Just wait for now. Don't remove nothing .. or you may loose your desktop.The Mir repo is very touchy.

    At least on this one install.

    Looks like there's some lightdm packages in the mir PPA now. Interesting....

    Finally got it all running on my Intel box after purging the xorg-edgers PPA.

    Do you even realise that the xmir (all the so called mir demoes and all) is essentially xwayland? Probably not; else you wouldn't have made that comment.

    ...We have integrated X, leveraging the prior XWayland work, to run on top of Mir (XMir)...

    I couldn't install any demo apps trough apt-get, but then I tried Synaptic - everything is up and running now (nvidia 9500 GT)
    btw you have to purge xorg-edgers alright...

    Now we have lighdm from Mir PPA...
    If I have to choose between Mir and XorgEdgers it will be a tough battle...
    OK, I'll try living without XE for some time...

    http://samohtv.wordpress.com/2013/03...as-a-new-home/ :
    Mir is not essentially wayland. Wayland was demoed on X. Soon it is talking through Mir. It has morphed, somewhat, becomming a horse of a different colour. I have been beta testing machines of all sorts since 1975 (including pinball machines and early prototype video games). In that buisness things moved fast. Stuff got obsoleted real quick. As an Ubuntu tester I like to keep moving along , not sitting on somebodies vaporware concept. Being as overly enthusiastic as I am I often get miffed by my own poutard (that is admittedly foot in mouth) but I see it as being hopeful that things will develop and move along quickly because I am not too keen on sitting on down_time caused by unecessary bickering and superfluous discussion.

    I had seen that. Does lighdm actually do anything at the moment? or can we use some code to experiement with it?
