I didn't write your web browser, sorry. I suggest you try searching Wikipedia?

you forgot the '' symbol in front of the 28 to signify a '('.. thats your fault, not chromiums, and lastly wikipedia is a politicized source of propaganda, i avoid it when possible

and this is the proper link anyway

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waylan...erver_protocol)

Oh, no! You got me! I suggested that you read about something using the well-established documentation rather than touting for opinions on a forum.

Please people, keep this civil. The link in 273's post may be broken because there currently is a bug in the forum software that sometimes swallows percent-signs. Jeremy is working on that.

Other than Xorg, you do have Wayland provided you get a working compositor such as Weston, and you may need to install various portions of Xorg, minus xorg-server of course for application support (xorg-server is the actual x client software). There is also an alternative UI drawing system called DirectFB, though I've known few people to get DirectFB working.

I apologise for being rude earlier. My point was that Wayland and X11 comparisons and discussions are too big to start posting here. If you want to learn whether one or the other will work for you best then it's probably best to read up then google around.
Again, sorry I blame tiredness for my rudeness and the feeling that what is being asked may be against the intentions of the server admin team.

don't be sorry.
i totally agree.

and, before someone disses wikipedia again, the internet is much bigger and there's many more ways to get information.
