Running

Make sure XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP is set. Make sure WAYLAND_DISPLAY and XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP are imported into D-Bus. If you're running Sway, this can be added to your config file:

exec dbus-update-activation-environment --systemd WAYLAND_DISPLAY XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=sway

When correctly installed, xdg-desktop-portal should automatically invoke xdg-desktop-portal-wlr when needed.

Configuration

See man 5 xdg-desktop-portal-wlr.

Manual startup

At the moment, some command line flags are available for development and testing. If you need to use one of these flags, you can start an instance of xdpw using the following command:

xdg-desktop-portal-wlr -r [OPTION...]

To list the available options, you can run xdg-desktop-portal-wlr --help.
