Instructions to run Weston (Wayland) session on Trisquel

Run Weston under Trisquel

Running Weston under Trisquel GNU/Linux is very easy.

Open a terminal and run:

sudo apt install weston

Then preferrably logout. Then switch to a tty (e.g. by pressing Ctrl+Alt+F3) and login with username and password. Optionally stop the lightdm service, to reduce resource use:

sudo systemctl stop lightdm

* lightdm will automatically start when you reboot.

Run:

weston-launch

This should launch a weston session. Press Ctrl+Alt+Backspace to logout of the session. Check here for other keyboard shortcuts
