Re: Use Wayland for a single application fullscreen without window decoration

Clay Montgomery

Hi Christian,

   My Lightwing application runs OpenGL ES full-screen only. I found that you really don't have to use Wayland, but just use the lower-level DRM (Display Resource Manager) API, instead.

   I have not used Qt for years, but I remember its window manager used to have a "no decoration" build option.

Regards, Clay

I’ve also read that EGLFS with i.MX8 is no more supported (this was my preferred solution), and only Wayland or XWayland is possible. This Wayland/Weston topic is completely new to me. Is there a more detailed description how to get it running? Do I have to use Weston Compositor, or should I use a different compositor?

I’ve read through this : , but I didn’t find a solution for my problem. Is there anybody who already did this?


Best regards,
