GTK[edit | edit source]

Display via the Wayland composer is done by setting the environment variable:

GDK_BACKEND=wayland[1]

In Linux, the application toolkit autodetects for display via the X Server or Wayland composer, so there is no need to explicitly set it.

QT[edit | edit source]

Display via the Wayland composer is done by setting the environment variable:

QT_QPA_PLATFORM=wayland[2]

JAVA Swing[edit | edit source]

Although it is possible to switch the display via GTK 3, the application will not work via Wayland.

Supported software[edit | edit source]

The programs are listed with official English names. Optional in parentheses the name of the program (command) being called.

"Y/N" is that it is functional under the official implementation of Wayland via the Weston composer and without XWayland turned on.
