Dear jao,

Wow! i am happy to know your sharing. To me, yours is really good
example using Wayland and Emacs. Thanks! Thanks! Thanks!

However still i am using X11 in Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. Debian 11 Bullseye
will be my next distro because i heard that Bullseye will have Wayland
by default in start-time. When Bullseye is out, at then i would like to
do testing this pgtk emacs (maybe 28.1?) ^^^

Sincerely, Wayland fan Byung-Hee
