Weston is the reference implementation of a Wayland compositor. It is completely written in C. Since version 7 it uses the Meson Build system. The Weston compositor is a minimal and fast compositor.

Installation

 $ dnf install weston weston-demo

The demo subpackage provides the clients programs:

  • weston-calibrator, weston-clickdot, weston-cliptest, weston-confine, weston-dnd, weston-editor, weston-eventdemo, weston-flower, weston-fullscreen, weston-image, ...

Starting Weston

GUI Login with GDM (GNOME Display Manager)

In general you will have the Fedora Workstation Edition installed. Then the graphical login manager allows to choose a Weston session before you enter a password. This is shown in the following picture:

Login with GDM

Virtual Console

On the virtual console entering the command weston or weston-launch starts the weston desktop.
