Remote headless Wayland sessions on GNOME
Talk about the work I've been doing in the last year
I'm a Graphics Engineer and I really like collaborating on open source communities.
Always trying to learn new things and increase my expertise, but never forgetting to enjoy the journey.
No video of the event yet, sorry!
When using Xorg, in order to have a headless remote session we could use Xvnc, and it worked great. You can start with it a headless Xorg display, on top of it use any desktop environment or just run a Xorg client and access it using VNC protocol.
Now with Wayland, the display server is also the windows manager/compositor so there isn't just one single display server to use any desktop environment but each desktop environment has its own Wayland compositor implementation.
In this talk, I will explain my quest to have a Wayland headless remote desktop using the RDP protocol in the GNOME environment.
Most of the work I'm doing is on this MR.
