Carsten Haitzler ba156d2f46 gesture - vm (vbox) detect hack to work around xorg no display bug
so... you go through wizard - only in vbox it seems (or maybe other
vm's - don't know - only tried vbox - this doesnt happen on real
systems). at the end e restarts... and it's blank. e is actually
rendering. you can screengrab (eg import -window root out.png) and see
the screen drawn just fine. xrandr is all set up right - everything is
kosher... but nothing will display except the curosr. xorg is just not
displaying rendered content. somehow e's gesture code and use of
logind/libinput to get inpiut devices for gestures tickles this xorg
bug. i don't quite know why as xorg doesnt seem to be complaining.
once you restart the xorg process everything works fine from there on.
it's some bug inside xorg that just refuses to display output.
manually changing resolution with xrandr will reset things and have
things render... until e restarts. a fukll xorg re-run is needed to
fix it... there just is nothing i can see that e is doing wrong or to
fix in e... so this is a workaround the xorg side by just not using
the gesture support if on a vm. they won't have touchpads anyway and
emulate mice so ... no real loss. this won't affect peolpe on real
systems and it may not always work as a workaround as it relies on
systemd-detect-virt or hostnamectl.

Please report bugs and submit patches at https://phab.enlightenment.org


  * efl
  * libpam (On Linux)

Highly suggested:
  * libexif (exif metadata display support)
  * evas_generic_loaders (All loaders)
  * bluez5 (BT support and l2ping tool)
  * connman
  * bc (For everything calculator)
  * pulseaudio
  * acpid (Unless your system doesn't have ACPI at all)
  * packagekit (For packagekit module updates status)
  * udisks2

For sample configuration options please look in the ./confs/ directory
for scripts that pass in commonly used options.

Please see the INSTALL file: https://git.enlightenment.org/core/enlightenment.git/tree/INSTALL

NOTE: Users of DR16 will need to rename the $prefix/bin/enlightenment
file prior to installing this release or it will be overwritten.

NOTE: If you do not want security issues make sure sysactions.conf is in
/etc/enlightenment (not PREFIX/etc/enlightenment) as this is the first place
it looks at. This file is intended to be customized by packagers and
system integrators to match your policies and scripts/tools.

NOTE: To enable wayland support (still considered experimental and not for
regular end users) use the meson -Dwl=true option. To run enlightenment in
wayland mode, just log on on ant vt and run enlightenment_start. If you
wish to debug and see all the output try using something like screen then
attaching to the remote screen session by sshing in etc.
