I want to use Cairo with Wayland on an embedded system.
I found this tutorial: https://jan.newmarch.name/Wayland/Cairo/
and this article from the mailing list archive:
both of which suggested I needed to use wl_egl_window -> EGLSurface ->
So I started to write some sample code on Ubuntu 18.04 to try this out,
and found that Cairo GL/EGL support is disabled. This report is back
from 2014 but it seems that support is still not enabled.
This leaves me with a few questions:
Q1: is wl_egl_window -> EGLSurface -> cairo_surface_t still considered
the right way to use Cairo with Wayland? Or is there a better way?
Q2: is the Cairo GL/EGL backend still experimental?
