Channel Version Published

Try Mir as your desktop, or as a window on your desktop

Egmde is a "worked example" of using Mir written to accompany a set of blog posts. It is not a fully functional shell.

These blog posts are listed here: https://github.com/AlanGriffiths/egmde/wiki

They don’t cover aspects of a desktop environment that are not related to using Mir. Missing functionality includes: integrating into the system for screen locking & suspend, policy kit integration, internationalization, etc.

The beta and edge channels track Mir releases:

 $ sudo snap install --classic --beta egmde # Latest Mir release
 $ sudo snap install --classic --edge egmde # Latest Mir development

To use egmde as your desktop, select it when logging in, to run it on your desktop run "egmde".

Note: Mir's "experimental" X11 support is enabled if, and only if, you have Xwayland installed:

 $ sudo apt install xwayland # Ubuntu
 $ sudo dnf install xorg-x11-server-Xwayland # Fedora
