Custom wayland compositor on IMX8M

Hello,

I 'm using IMX8M with yocto / wayland image.

Is it possible to avoid using weston and use my own compositor ?

I try using some Qt examples (pure-qml, minimal-cpp, minimal-qml....) but i can't find a compositor which runs successfully.

This compositior needs "eglfs" as backend (and as far as i know, eglfs is not supported on imx8m) in order to accept later custom application with wayland backend.

I hope i my explanation were clear.

BR and many thanks for your help.

Frédéric

Hello Frederic,

Is not possible to use your own compositor if you are working with yocto NXP release, egls is not supported by the i.MX8M.

Hello,

Of course I have seen in yocto nxp BSP support that only wayland or xwayland is supported.

So the only possibility if we'd like a compositor is to use weston ?

Weston should use some tricks.... and my own compositor couldn't use same tricks ?

I tried every compositor from Qt and i can't make any of them working.

Weston is too big for our application...
