Using GTK+ with Wayland

The GDK Wayland backend provides support for running GTK+ applications under the Wayland display server. To run your application in this way, select the Wayland backend by setting GDK_BACKEND=wayland.

Currently, the Wayland backend does not use any additional commandline options or environment variables.

For up-to-date information about the current status of this backend, see the project page.
