23 Have you tried using a Display Manager? Some of my systems won't work with
24 Wayland, but I haven't spent time to find out why all I get with them is a
25 black screen.
27 Anyway, from a VT you'd run something like:
29 XDG_SESSION_TYPE=wayland dbus-run-session startplasma-wayland
31 or
33 XDG_SESSION_TYPE=wayland dbus-run-session gnome-session
