compile options enlightenment desktop

Postby Roald » 2019-02-01 19:24

Hello, i am trying to build wayland only enlightenment desktop on Debian Buster, using: https://www.enlightenment.org/about-wayland
I already have working wayland with Gnome + Weston, and OpenGL applications run without any problems.

To use the wayland-only-enlightenment desktop, i should compile enlightenment with options: –enable-wayland-clients –enable-wayland-egl

Question: how do i append these options?

I can build the enlightenment package with:
# ./configure
# make && make_install
then execute the enlightenment_start, shoots up the desktop, however without wayland, it just runs on Xorg.

So i must be failing on compiling wayland support into the build?

Arch's PKGBUILDs are useful for this sort of thing, see line 30:

https://git.archlinux.org/svntogit/pack ... enment#n30

EDIT: don't run the configure options or the make command as root, only the install command needs elevated permissions.

I don't see the error in that paste, so I suspect it happened earlier. Search the entire output for "Error", case dependent.

Do you have libwayland-dev installed?

It's also better to rebuild the Buster deb packages from source with your changes instead of compiling from raw source tarballs.

Buster's efl libraries are compiled with all the wayland configuration options in that guide except the gl-drm one, which might not be necessary any longer, but not the enlightenment packages, as far as I can tell.
