I'm currently evaluation the imx8mquad, linux branch rocko-4.9.123-2.3.0_8mm_ga.
Building a fsl-imx-xwayland DISTRO with Qt 5.10 installed.
weston is also installed as the reference wayland compositor.
The imx8 is connected to a 1920x1080 touchscreen monitor on hdmi.
I can execute the Qt samples using -platform wayland-egl
But I would like to try to run my own compositor. For testing, I tried to run Qt qwindow-compositor sample.
It works, but actually I would like to test it without Weston.
So I stopped Weston and launched the following command line as suggested by qt:
qwindow-compositor -platform xcb
But it failed:
qt.qpa.screen: QXcbConnection: Could not connect to display
Could not connect to any X display.
Well, I'm fairly new into NXP ecosystem.
I realized that directfb is not supported yet by imx8 (will it be in the future???).
But normally, xwayland should provide a backward compatibility with X11 applications ?
So I should be able to run the qwindow-compositor sample with xcb plugin ?
Did I make a mistake ?
Thanks for your feedback, it's a very blocking issue for me.
