Lots of us over at Intel towers are working hard to bring you a great new Wayland powered experience.
Cogl and Clutter have now been updated to work with the latest Wayland master. You need to compile master Cogl with:
./configure --enable-wayland-egl-platform=yes --enable-gl
And then to run any applications using Cogl on Wayland you need to setup the environment variable
COGL_RENDERER=egl_wayland then you can run cogl-crate!
For Clutter you need to compile Clutter master with:
You also need to set an environment variable to choose the Clutter backend too – in this case it’s
CLUTTER_BACKEND=wayland (and you need to set
COGL_RENDERER too) then you can run test-actors!
Or just look at the video below 🙂
The Clutter client side support is basically complete so i’ve now moved onto working on GTK and MX – watch this space for updates!
