I am able to start weston-launch (drm backend) having both connectors enabled via kernel cmdline (acpi=off i915.modeset=1 video=VGA-1:1280x1024 at 60e video=HDMI-A-1:1280x1024 at 60D) to display a double size desktop but I am not able to enable twinview/mirroring to get the same output on both monitors. Is that possible via some "output" settings?

Heh, funny that I posted my cloning series just a few hours after you
asked that, once they will be reviewed and merged you will just have to
add such a section to your weston.ini:


This isn’t possible on current master.
