* The GNOME UI doesn't notice when AC power is disconnected.
* Accelerometer and automatic screen rotation: mostly works, not as
clever as I hoped.
* Accelerometer and automatic screen rotation: kind of works, but not
in a smooth/reliable way enough to be useful.
* Keyboard is automatically disabled when the screen is flipped to
tablet mode.
* Touchscreen: basically works, but I didn't try to exercise it much.
It seems that some parts of the GNOME UI don't work with touch but
_only_ when the display is rotated (e.g. flipped to tablet mode).
* GNOME Shell does not get any hardware acceleration (glamor, dri3,
EGL) so it's "falling back to sw". And then both with Wayland and
X.Org, full-screen video playback eats tons of CPU to the point it
is totally unusable with Totem and VLC, and pretty bad even with
mpv. That's probably due to the lack of a `mediatek_dri.so` DRI
module for Mesa or VA-API support (the latter because
[[!debpts gstreamer1.0-vaapi]] is not installable on sid today);
I'll retry when the latter is fixed, that might help.
Some tweaks are needed to make it work really well, e.g.
`MOZ_USE_XINPUT2=1` for touch scrolling in Firefox 55.0.3-1
and setting `browser.gesture.pinch.in` to `cmd_fullZoomReduce` +
`browser.gesture.pinch.out` to `cmd_fullZoomEnlarge` for pinch
to zoom.
* Video playback:
- GNOME Shell does not get any hardware acceleration (glamor, dri3,
EGL) so it's "falling back to sw". And then both with Wayland and
X.Org, full-screen video playback eats tons of CPU to the point it
is totally unusable with Totem and VLC, and pretty bad even with
mpv. That's probably due to the lack of a `mediatek_dri.so` DRI
module for Mesa or VA-API support (the latter because
[[!debpts gstreamer1.0-vaapi]] is not installable on sid today);
I'll retry when the latter is fixed, that might help.
- GNOME Flashback (Metacity): even though the window manager does
not use tons of CPU, the end-result is only perceptibly better
with mpv (and even there it's not perfect). Touchscreen support
is far behind the GNOME Shell experience (no gesture to interact
with the desktop, poorly integrated screen keyboard, no automatic
rotation of the display).
