Re: Wayland on stretch

As far as I'm aware rpi-backend was an alternative to all almost all DRM stuff and was specific to the VC rather than generic

I'm not particularly knowledgeable in that low level area of the Linux graphics stack I'm afraid

Re: Wayland on stretch

In theory that should work brilliantly Unfortunately to really see benefits you would have to use the rpi-backend for Weston but that was scrapped as it only ever supported Pi1 on Wheezy That said Pi0 is close enough to Pi1 you may be able to get Wheezy to run but you would have things like Gtk 3.4 ...

Re: Wayland on stretch

I believe lack of documentation for the VideoCore was a factor It's a shame because back in the Wheezy days I managed to run Maynard and experienced the benefits first hand, sure Maynard was incredibly incomplete and Weston (especially the XWayland plugin) was rather buggy back then but the performa...

Re: Wayland on stretch

Ok I finally made it. Just --libdir and autoconf did most of the magic. GTK application on Wayland works, CLUTTER also works hopefully with COGL, no problem running Weston after start. Video rendering is a bit slow, but could be caused by Weston, GTK, clutter and gstreamer combination, working appl...

Re: Wayland on stretch

If you keep Gtk installed though apt and rebuild Gtk with a prefix of /usr (--prefix=/usr to ./configure) then make install will overwrite the relevent files and everything should use the right version whether compiled directly on the pi, compiled on another pi running stretch and copied across or i...

Re: Wayland on stretch

No because if make install put Gtk in /usr/local it won't have overridden the system version of Gtk so applications will continue to run and be built against the system version in /usr

Try running one of the demos (e.g. /usr/local/bin/gtk3-widget-factory ) and see if that works

Re: Wayland on stretch

I suspect `make install` will have put Gtk in `/usr/local/` instead of `/usr/`

Re: Wayland on stretch

I think when I tried I ended up recompiling Mesa as well as Gtk, wasn't successful when I tried as I ended running out of disk space (8GB card that had seen some use)

Good luck it would be great to see this done

Re: Wayland on stretch

Wayland / Weston is available on stretch (And works quite well in fact) however Gtk3 is being configured in a way that means you cannot use Gtk3 applications as native clients, you can only use them through Xwayland (much as with Gtk2 application) It would be nice if a `gtk-wayland` package was prov...

https://wiki.debian.org/Wayland https://packages.debian.org/stretch/weston Maybe I should have stated this before, the weston implementation of Wayland works as does the XWayland plugin however the Gtk toolkit is being distributed with only the X11 backend whereas previously it was available with W...

Wayland on stretch

Is Gtk3 being compiled without Wayland support? I've been paying around with stretch this morning it seems the Wayland backend is missing, as are the gdk wayland development headers. Whilst I can understand splitting them into a separate package it would be good to have them available from the repos...

Had been thinking of doing something like this myself, very nice

It's a shame the service has to be restarted but I can't see a way to avoid that really.

Re: Change langauge to Australian English

Setting the to en_GB only seems to affect to local (pico2wave) voice, not the voice used for cloud (Google) actions

I may be wrong but that has been my experience, did you try the 'ip address' action? that should use the local voice.

Re: Posh TTS - change to enGB

It's a better voice sure, but i still find it squeaky.

It fact it often triggers the clap detector, causing an interesting argument with itself.

Any ideas on how to clean it up?

So I've been watching the Git commits and it appears we are to have a new wallpaper. Anyone know any more or what this wallpaper is?

Re: webkit2gtk getting old

In the world of web development a 3 year old rendering engine could easily be argued as obsolete. And having such an old package hanging around is breaking others (like DevHelp)
