Description

This demo will showcase the Wayfire OpenGL Wayland compositor running on the Raspberry Pi 3 using Pixman to render the desktop. We will briefly discuss the efforts involved with converting an OpenGL compositor to render using Pixman and some of the issues we encountered on the way. We will also discuss multiple performance optimizations targeted specifically at improving the Pixman rendering path that dramatically improved the user experience, showcasing before-and-after comparisons.
