Howto: start Weston on Wayland easier......and exit
« on: August 04, 2018, 06:14:53 PM »
Hi

For those who like to have a look at Weston here is a possible easier way to load and start it.

I have a file in .local/bin called wl which I made executable with contents

Quote
#!/bin/sh
tce-load -i weston
XDG_RUNTIME_DIR=/run/user/1001 weston-launch

optional .....add xwayland after weston if you intent to play with things that wayland does not support natively
such as gtk2

so I exit to prompt and run
Code: [Select]
wl
standing for weston load and run

saves using the up arrow key to scroll thru my history of commands

PS I boot up with local user tc.

2) To exit, to the prompt I use keys
Ctrl (and) Alt (and) <- keys 

<- means the backspace key

 some sites show above as 

C + A + backspace
