    Who wants to test wayland on raring after 5 years of development?

    Another member suggested this thread.

    I tried , before and then just recently and I can't get past the screen that looks like an old blanket, although I was able to run FF and gksu gedit etc... but I had to be in the Weston compositor @ALT+CTRL+F1 but it would not work in terminal under Ubuntu. Maybe there is hope for it .. I dunno..

    peace

    errr.. MIR that is

    LOL!

    United. Err .... Unity that is

    Seriously. No. I cannot be serious about any of this fuss. Not when I think of the serious and sad situations that many are in all over the world. But, anyway there has been some testing in this forum.

    Was tempted myself. But it looks too much like work.

    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.

    It's all more clear now.

    I believe Maui is adopting SDDM soon and should offer a login and desktop compositor for a full Wayland experience.

    This.

    @Ventrical: no disrespect, but you're confusing weston with wayland. Weston is the 'old carpet' thing. That's the default desktop shell, it's just a demo of what's possible (and to be honest, not a very impressive one). However, once people start getting creative with Wayland (the protocol), there's a whole load of possibilites. The maui project is quite an impressive desktop shell if you can get it working, see here: http://www.maui-project.org/

    I really wish the whole project well and that it may be a success.
