socket-activated weston ?
Why does weston require logind ? I work in the embedded world and we
usually disable logind entirely (no users in the "human user" meaning of
That's when you run Weston as a normal user: logind grants access to
DRM and input devices and revokes access as well when appropriate.
Ok, no problem, we can deal with that in lots of ways.
I was afraid there was some more tricky stuff (dependencies on dbus API or
something like that)
logind is not a hard requirement. That option has usually been
called for by people who don't have systemd at all. I'm not sure Weston
has ever been tested on systemd but without logind. Or maybe it works
and no-one told upstream. :-)
It works and no one told upstream :P
Weston (and wayland in general ) are a boon to the embedded world.
We are regularly asked to do systems with very precise placement for
different windows coming from different apps
(think of a car, where the map application is usually an html5 in-browser
application, but you can swith to air-conditionning control which is a
hand-made Qt application, and the the back camera which is a separate
In the bad-old days, we would have to play with X and window-managers like
Awesome to do that (or write our own window manager which is... hell)
Now, we have weston which is very good at dealing with that (thx IVI mode)
or we can write or own compositor which is almost as easy as writing a
normal GUI application (qtcompositor, mainly)
A bit offtopic here, sorry about that.
