    I don't know anything about Xwayland, but according there's this sentence in this socat writeup:

    > If you want to access an X server that does not provide -listen tcp (Xwayland) or just did not have enabled it during startup (like most likely your host Xorg), you can use socat to provide TCP/IP access.

    install https://www.xquartz.org/ to have X11

    brew install fltk libjpeg #you might also need openssl@3 but unsure

    git clone https://github.com/crossbowerbt/dillo-plus/; cd dillo-plus

    I spent some (too much) time trying to get pretty much the same thing running using GOW [1]. Was quite a bit harder than I thought, requiring a hdmi dummy plug to get the xserver config right etc.

    Secondly I have this small script to handle automatic screen rotations: https://github.com/Quoteme/screenrotate It is just a few lines of code and should be easy to understand. In case you need help, you can ask me though. For it to work, you only need to have the drivers for rotation working (iio-sensor-proxy) and you might need to change the device names on the code, which you can find using lspci.
