Thanks to Vocivus for his reply. I’m using Void’s musl version besides, and a minimal window manager (jwm), but in case there is a solution, perhaps someone with better know-how than mine could point out what next steps should be done next, or changed, from this entry in Void Linux’s google groups forum. I basically tried following similar steps, but using the mininal Archlinux weston.ini version for the Weston compositor.
It seems from Arch’s wikipage that you can try the Weston compositor while running an X session, simply by running the following within a terminal:
I then got an error message, however, stating in part:
Old Xwayland module loading detected: Please use --xwayland command line option or set xwayland=true in the [core] section in weston.ini
So I tentatively tried:
…which still gives me an error:
fatal: drm backend should be run using weston-launch binary or as root
I don’t know how to solve all that.
