So I just installed the latest Kali Linux on my laptop which was based on what is currently an oldstable. I then upgraded the whole thing to current stable, which then upgraded my Gnome Desktop to version 3...

Coincidentally, Wayland just had a working package in the Debian repository on the current stable. How do I use it?

When I boot up I get shown this screen (which it didn't do in the Gnome 2 of the latest Kali): https://blogs.gnome.org/mclasen/files/2013/09/login-screen.png

Then I select the Setting (the gear on the left side of "Sign In" button). It shows me:

System Default

Gnome

Gnome Classic

Gnome on Wayland

The only one that's ever worked was Gnome Classic. How do I force the usage of Wayland? I already have these Wayland related packages installed:

xwayland

weston

ibus-wayland

libwayland-client0

libwayland-server

libwayland-egl1-mesa

libwayland-cursor0

libva-wayland1

Yet when I choose Gnome on Wayland, the screen gets screwed up... How do I enter Wayland?

Btw, the file ~/.config/weston.ini does not exist.
