Does it work on Wayland?

Does Copperspice work on Wayland?

Like with Weston compositor...

I was about to try myself but was wondering if anyone has done so already.

I tried this btw and it didn't work on a Arch + Weston. It gives:

CsGuiXcb1.7.so: (Invalid argument)

Seems to be trying to use x11.

CopperSpice builds on Arch and this is a supported platform as per our CS Overview documentation. All Unix platforms use X11 through XCB.

Wayland is a new display protocol and not currently supported with CopperSpice. It is not on our roadmap right now however it is something we may pursue. If having support for Wayland is required you have two main options.
The first is to contribute a PR to CopperSpice based on original code or any LGPL 2.1 work. The other option is to submit your requirements as part of a paid subscription to CS.

If you have other questions please let us know.

Wayland is pretty big in the embedded world right now. All Toradex and Variscite SoC force it on you. Well, all of the new iMX8 stuff does. NXP creates most of the BSP software and they've removed X11.
