I created a PKGBUILD that just builds the Xwayland binary.

Added NEEDED dependencies from readelf -d Xwayland to the depends array.

We should be able to only build the XWayland binary without building and replacing the entire X server.

For Fedora the xorg-x11-server-Xwayland- package also only installs /usr/bin/XWayland

We can't reuse this package though, since Fedora builds it with SELinux and it complains about missing on Arch Linux when you use the precompiled binary from Fedora.

Only building the XWayland binary would probably also allow us to drop a bunch of patches and dependencies.

You have --enable-wayland in the PKGBUILD. Shouldn't it be --enable-xwayland as it says in the file of the xorg master branch?

AC_ARG_ENABLE(xwayland, AS_HELP_STRING([--enable-xwayland], [Build Xwayland server (default: auto)]), [XWAYLAND=$enableval], [XWAYLAND=auto]

Works now.
You'll need wayland-git and weston-git.
Have fun. :)

This may not be clear, but this PKGBUILD builds an XWayland-enabled Xorg from the upstream official X code.
XWayland was merged in Xorg 1.16, no patching involved.

This may not be clear, but this pkg builds an XWayland-enabled Xorg from the upstream official vanilla X code.

Also the pkgver is still as ridiculous as ever.

I confirm zanny's comment, this PKGBUILD is missing presentproto.
But it is also missing : xcb-util{,-wm,-image,-keysyms}.

Thanks, I'm currently looking into this. :)
Unfortunately, weston is missing a "xserver-server-protocol.h" and I currently don't know where this header is supposed to come from.

I'd suggest switching to Kristian's xserver branch until Xorg server 1.16 is released.

It looks like this now works through havinga a patch for xwayland in the wayland compositor (weston, mutter-wayland etc.)


or in Mutter


I don't know if that would still require further configuration or if it just works if you have the xwayland patches in both the compositor and xorg-server.
