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, support for non-Wayland (i.e. X11) applications, 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 can be enabled by:
$ sudo snap set egmde x11-display=auto
You may also need to install Xwayland:
$ sudo apt install xwayland # Ubuntu $ sudo dnf install xorg-x11-server-Xwayland # Fedora
