Note: egmde is no longer the best user experience from a Mir based shell, for that see https://snapcraft.io/miriway
Egmde is a "worked example" of using Mir written to accompany a set of blog posts. It is a basic, usable graphical shell, not a not a fully functional desktop environment.
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, and internationalization.
To use egmde as your desktop, select it when logging in, to run it on your desktop run "egmde".
Egmde can be configured by editing ~/.config/egmde.config or on the commandline. Common options are documented in the file created by default. All options are listed with:
$ egmde --help
There is also some limited support for "remote desktop" meaning egmde can be used over VNC.
$ egmde.remote --help
Choose your Linux distribution to get detailed installation instructions. If yours is not shown, get more details on the installing snapd documentation.
