xrdesktop: wxrd

A prototype-quality standalone client for xrdesktop based on wlroots and the wxrc codebase.


Make sure to first install an OpenXR compatible runtime such as Monado.


# Install required libraries:
sudo pacman -S meson cmake wayland-protocols seatd glew glfw-wayland shaderc xcb-util-errors weston

# Now we are ready to configure:
mkdir -p ~/Development/xrdesktop
cd ~/Development/xrdesktop
git clone --recursive https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/xrdesktop/wxrd.git
cd wxrd

cd subprojects
git clone https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/xrdesktop/gulkan.git -b next
git clone https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/xrdesktop/gxr.git -b next
git clone https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/xrdesktop/xrdesktop.git -b next
cd ..

# meson >= 0.60 fails with unknown option
# https://github.com/mesonbuild/meson/issues/932#issuecomment-1006155441
meson -Ddefault_library=static build

# It's compilation time. We need install here so wxrd
# is capable to find xrdesktop when run:
ninja -C build install
