Thanks for pushing! I mailed you the login name of the account I created on

I'm actually not using the GuixSD config for it. What I have in it related to SDDM is:
         (service sddm-service-type
                  (display-server "wayland")))

The only thing that's different from an untouched sddm-service-type is that the above says that SDDM should be using Wayland as well. However, this doesn't work yet, so SDDM still uses X11 (I think upstream SDDM is working on it).

On SDDM you can select "GNOME (Wayland)" under sessions. For me that works out of the box. I'll try SLiM, GDM and vanilla SDDM this weekend and see if they all work properly.

Hi Rutger,

Rutger Helling <address@hidden> skribis:

With this patch I'm able to launch a GNOME on Wayland session, on SDDM
at least.

Woohoo!  Do you have a GuixSD config to do that?  Eventually we should
provide an easy way for people to use Wayland if they want to.

* gnu/packages/gnome.scm (mutter): [inputs]: Add xorg-server-xwayland.
[arguments]: Add '--with-xwayland-path' to #:configure-flags.


Could you create an account on so we can give you
commit access?  That would be more convenient for you and a good thing
for the project's growth I believe.  :-)

Thank you,
