On this page, we're collecting tips and tricks to make Plasma work on Wayland:

Build instructions

We recommend following this guide to install the Wayland stack, including the QtWayland module

Generic, but more detailed build instructions for Wayland / Weston, including underlying stack can be found at: http://wayland.freedesktop.org/building.html

Create a wl-env script somewhere in your $PATH, looking like this (adjust WLD to your wayland installation path):

WLD=/home/sebas/kf5/wayland/install
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$WLD/lib
PKG_CONFIG_PATH=$WLD/lib/pkgconfig/:$WLD/share/pkgconfig/
ACLOCAL="aclocal -I $WLD/share/aclocal"
export YACC=bison

export WLD LD_LIBRARY_PATH PKG_CONFIG_PATH ACLOCAL YACC

if test -z "${XDG_RUNTIME_DIR}"; then
    export XDG_RUNTIME_DIR=/tmp/${UID}-runtime-dir
    if ! test -d "${XDG_RUNTIME_DIR}"; then
        mkdir "${XDG_RUNTIME_DIR}"
        chmod 0700 "${XDG_RUNTIME_DIR}"
    fi
fi

Running KF5 applications under Wayland

Inside an existing X session:

weston

starts a new window under your X server with Weston running inside it.


From a hard console / virtual terminal:

export $(dbus-launch)
weston-launch
kwrite -platform wayland
