weston-launch - command not found

Wed Jun 05, 2013 9:31 am

so I've loaded the 5-25 image of raspbian and it works fine and I do see that weston is already @ most current level.
tried weston-launch but get command not found.. I don't see any hits for weston-launch when I do a search..
what am I doing wrong here? thanks.

It looks like there is an issue with versioning. You should be able to get it working by following the instructions in that thread.

That would be because the comment was in the comment thread for this Raspberry Pi announcement here:
http://www.raspberrypi.org/archives/4128
and not in the forums. The search in the top right hand corner only searches the forum posts.

so now I want to try and do something other than open a terminal.. I tried leafpad and got can't open display..
I set up a new launcher stanza in weston.ini but that only adds the icon on top which does not work probably
for the same reason ... then I tried to use xterm got can't open display and display is not set ..
any ideas??

what is simple-shm supposed to do? I clicked it and it id not work.. so I ran it in the
terminal and it came back command not found..not available to install in apt-get

can you use gpu=64 (the default) I increased it to 128 but still the same error.. if it doesn't have
to be increased I would leave it at 64.

also do you think that weston-wayland warrants its own forum catagory?

thanks.
