Trying Out Ubuntu GNOME 16.10, Wayland Session Not So Great

With today'sUbuntu 16.10 release one of the exciting spins we've been looking forward to is Ubuntu GNOME 16.10, which has an experimental Wayland session available but is not the default. I spent a few minutes trying out Ubuntu GNOME 16.10 this morning.

Ubuntu GNOME 16.10 ships with gnome-session-wayland installed by default so you can easily log-in to the Wayland-based session from the login manager, but it's not used by default -- Ubuntu GNOME 16.10 still defaults to the X.Org Server session.

Of Phoronix readers, there's been a few reports of not being able to login to the GNOME Wayland session . On a clean install of Ubuntu GNOME 16.10 with an Intel Skylake system, I ran into no problems logging into the session, seems users are having a problem with LightDM/SSDM.

While I was able to start the GNOME Wayland session, right away I realized my mouse cursor wasn't working... Keyboard input was working fine, but no cursor. Strange as I've used this same exact Intel Skylake desktop on Fedora with Wayland and other Wayland test scenarios before, even with the Mir Unity 8 experimental testing too.

I can navigate to benchmarking via the Phoronix Test Suite with just the keyboard, but unfortunately, none of the graphics tests would run. They wouldn't work either over XWayland or for the SDL2 tests when setting SDL_VIDEODRIVER=wayland . So I wasn't able to run any GNOME Wayland vs. X.Org benchmarks on Ubuntu GNOME 16.10. So long story short, the Wayland session on Ubuntu GNOME 16.10 isn't as well-baked as what can be found on the upcoming Fedora 25 where it's using Wayland by default or even with the current Fedora 24 release when opting to use the GNOME Wayland session.

But outside of the Wayland session, the GNOME 3.20~3.22 stack on Ubuntu GNOME 16.10 has been working out fairly well:
