Fixing wayland on Ubuntu Unity 7

I want to use waydroid on ubuntu unity7. and i got this error
[14:04:03] WAYLAND_DISPLAY is not set, defaulting to “wayland-0”
[14:04:03] Wayland socket ‘/run/user/1000/wayland-0’ doesn’t exist; are you running a Wayland compositor?

This is because … Unity is not based on Wayland. Unity is based on Compiz.

If Waydroid needs the Wayland compositor (and from it’s name … I’m guessing it does…), then it’s not going to work on Unity.

UnityX is being written with Wayland in mind, but isn’t really ready for prime time yet as far as I can see.
