@fernandomaroto Thanks, that suggestion did get me closer. I had to install the weston and xorg-xwayland (not exact name) packages to get that command to work. Once I did, it launched a desktop but I could not get a terminal to verify that it was a wayland session (the terminal would act like it was launching but no window would appear). Same is true about all other software - no windows would ever appear. The display settings dialog would open, but the contents of the dialog were empty.
I’m thinking of migrating to Antergos but I need to first test Wayland and multiple monitors (I’m currently using Ubuntu on a Dell XPS laptop and the 4K screen does not play well with my external monitor under Unity).
I can’t for the life of me figure out how to test this using the Live boot from USB version. LightDM autologins the antergos user so I can’t even experiment with choosing the different desktop options at the login screen. I’ve also read I might need to switch to GDM.
Can someone advise the proper way to use Wayland from the Live environment?
