Waydroid on PinePhone Pro PPP (Stock Manjaro Plasma)
#1
Any luck running Waydroid on PPP default Manjaro Plasma Install?

I was able to get it installed with the below instructions for the PinePhone, but upon launching it just hangs on the Waydroid launch screen.

Installation instructions:

Code:
sudo pacman -S waydroid-image
sudo waydroid init -f
sudo systemctl enable waydroid-container --now



then launch the app from Pinephone App launcher.

App hangs and does not progress past initial screen. I tried launching from the terminal with wayland show-full-ui and got a wayland-0 display error. 

Upon forcing a reboot from the terminal I noticed an Android terminal screen with an error about sensors... I forced a reboot holding the power button. Perhaps some tweaks are needed to target the proper display? Any thoughts?

Thinking the issue has to do with PSI requirement in the kernel which has not yet made it to mainline stable Manjaro.

Is there a work around for PSI or do we need to upgrade to a non-stable kernel... or do we wait. :-\

I found a case where they disabled the hardware render to get waydroid to start on the Pro.

#!/bin/bash
# Download image, can be slow

sudo waydroid init
# Older android images cant use hardware acceleration on new hardware, so turn off.

( sudo echo "ro.hardware.gralloc=default" ; sudo echo "ro.hardware.egl=swiftshader" ) >>/var/lib/waydroid/waydroid_base.prop
sudo systemctl enable waydroid-container.service
sudo systemctl restart waydroid-container.service

Then for start script:

#!/bin/bash
waydroid session start &
waydroid show-full-ui &




There is no guarantee that it will work, but you can try.

Thanks for this suggestion. This got Waydroid running for me on Pinephone Pro running Arch ARM in Phosh. Does this mean the Pinephone Pro GPU is not supported by Wayland?

I can confirm this works on Manjaro Gnome on the PPP.

The GPU is support by wayland. From my understanding, the LineageOS version used isn't compatible with the RK3399 GPU currently. I haven't tried it lately and I am unsure whether or not it has been updated for it yet.
