    Default Multi-Seat Support Running Well In Wayland/Weston

    Phoronix: Multi-Seat Support Running Well In Wayland/Weston

    With new patches, multi-seat support for Wayland with the Weston compositor is beginning to work well. For showing off Wayland/Weston multi-seat handling, a video has been made...

    Idea/Wishlist: Multi-seat over the network? Share one workspace, work collaboratively from different buildings or countries or cubicles.

    Good job to the Wayland/Weston devs!

    The gaming quote is also valid. Think about split screen with two keyboards and two mice.

    Each seat controls it's own pointer an has it's own focus, enabling collaborative user experience."
    "Each seat controls its own pointer an has its own focus, enabling collaborative user experience."

    How is this multiseat? I played with multiple pointers like this when Multi Pointer X was merged a couple of years ago? True multiseat (IMHO requiring the rendernode work to come to fruition) can be awesome for libraries and such, but this?

    This thing screams for an easy to use GUI to get users make the most of it.


    Cool though.

    Default NOT multi-seat

    That is not multi-seat, it's multi-input

    Multi-seat = each seat has it's own session

    some info
    In particular, highlighting the definition in topic, we have:
    A multi-session system allows multiple user sessions on the same seat at the same time. Linux+systemd qualifies.

    A multi-seat system allows multiple independent seats that can be individually and simultaneously used by different users. Linux+systemd qualifies.
