I'm trying to play with Wayland. The issues so far
1. I originally had XFCE pattern when installing TW. I installed
gnome-wayland-session pattern which pulled in some dependencies
including gdm. But gdm simply does not work - whatever session I select
it fails to login as any user. I presume this is the old "patterns are
not self contained" issue (I never managed to recreate anything proposed
by installer post-installation, which is why I was rather sad seeing
these choices removed from installation dialogue).
2. In lightdm I see two GNOME sessions and one "GNOME Xorg" session.
Whatever session I select I apparently end up in GNOME on Xorg (at least
if I can believe loginctl session type). How can I start GNOME Wayland
session from display manager? What gnome-session-wayland is supposed to
do - desktop file it installs is not in any way different from "normal"
3. I can select Weston in lightdm and it actually works - it starts
weston (and loginctl confirms that session type is wayland), so wayland
itself sort of works - but keyboard is unusable. It seems to miss key
presses/releases, so first no character is entered, when I press the
same character once more it often starts auto-repeat filling screen with
the same character over and over.
4. I can start GNOME wayland from tty using
XDG_SESSION_TYPE=wayland exec dbus-run-session gnome-session
but session type remains tty and I have exactly the same issue with
keyboard (now in gnome-terminal instead of weston-terminal).
