Yes, it will be updated for wlroots 0.15 when I get around to it, probably within the next couple of weeks. This will be tracked at

Can this be updated to build with wlroots 0.15?

it's just a .desktop installed to /usr/share/wayland-sessions similar to X.

Here's an example of wayfire's

[Desktop Entry]

They provide that by default. I ended up copying it to use for sway.

I haven't looked into what exactly vivarium needs to provide to allow for display manager usage, but I'm happy to add it in principle.

For what it's worth the sway login managers wiki page at probably applies to vivarium - I have it set to autostart on one of my ttys which works well enough that I hadn't thought about supporting anything else yet. I don't want to exclude other methods though.

Thoughts on providing a wayland-session/.desktop file for vivarium to allow for Display Manager usage?

Vivarium now supports wlroots 0.13.0, the PKGBUILD dependency needs updating to match.

inclement commented on 2021-04-28 22:45 (UTC)

This package can't currently be installed because it depends on wlroots 0.12.0.

This will be fixed as soon as is merged - it should already work but is just waiting for me to fix the CI (as the Ubuntu CI backend lacks wlroots 0.13).

Alternatively, if you build manually using the instructions in the README then meson will automatically download and build against wlroots 0.12.0.
