[PATCH wayland-web 1/2] Updated Ubuntu 12.04 instructions

This was tested on the same machine as before. Changes are:

- xmlto is required (it was already installed on my machine so I missed this)

- libinput is enabled by default

- fixed date

Several x11 proto packages that seem to be required on my Mint 14.04 machine
are not necessary here: randrproto, compositeproto, scrnsaverproto,

I believe the reason is that the libx11-dev package necessary for mesa
installed sufficiently-recent versions.
