PPA description

Daily builds of Wayland

IMPORTANT: This is for experimentation/testing only, not for production use. Before upgrading your system to a new Ubuntu release you should probably run 'ppa-purge ppa:wayland.admin/daily-builds' first.

To install this PPA:
$ apt-add-repository ppa:wayland.admin/daily-builds
$ apt-get update

Install Weston, the reference Wayland compositor.
$ sudo apt-get install weston

From within X to launch Weston in a window, run;
$ weston
If you want you can put a weston.ini file in your $XDG_CONFIG_HOME, check "man weston.ini" for the syntax or look it up on GitHub:

From Linux built-in kernel VT, press Ctrl+Alt+F1, and type:
$ weston-launch
To run Weston on Wayland, not under X.

If you want to run legacy X11 applications on Wayland, you need to install XWayland.
$ sudo apt-get install xwayland
You can configure Weston to use XWayland by loading xwayland.so in your "core" section of your weston.ini config file. See "man weston.ini".

GNOME on Wayland
$ sudo apt-get install gnome-session-wayland
Now to run GNOME with the Wayland session, either install GDM (sudo apt-get install gdm), which is the GNOME Display Manager to replace LightDM, then you can select "GNOME with Wayland" as your login session.
Or Ctrl+Alt+F1 and run:
$ gnome-session --session=gnome-wayland
