@jonius I don't have VirtualBox to hand to give detailed instructions. But it should work if you enable "the right" graphics options. Not sure what it's called. Something like 'passthrough' or '3D' maybe?

I was hit by this bug. Now with 3D acceleration enabled most of the smoke tests succeed. Only
mir_demo_client_eglplasmastill failes. And the unit test I mentioned above continues to fail as well. Will test on separate installation without VM this weekend.
MIR_SERVER_CURSOR=null QT_QPA_PLATFORM=mirserver qmlscene qml-demo-shell/qml-demo-shell.qmlworks partially. The circle rotates, but the mouse cursor is not visible and clicking the scale buttons results in
file:///home/miroil/qtmir/demos/qml-demo-shell/qml-demo-shell.qml:28: Error: Unknown method parameter type: FormFactor.
the mouse cursor is not visible
That's sort of expected. I disabled the cursor in Mir because QtMir tries to set a zero sized image instead of hiding it. And Mir treats that as an error.
I've not looked at how it works for Lomiri. I suspect it renders its own cursor.

@alan_g installed Ubuntu 16.04 on my notebook directly via Ubuntu Touch (ISODrive is a great tool). Unfortunately the situation here is worse than in my VM on an Ubuntu 20.04 host. I guess the outdated
amdgpufor my Radeon Vega 8 Graphics in Ubuntu 16.04 is to blame. The demo runs like in the VM, the same unit test fails, but many smoke tests fail:
I: mir_demo_client_camera I: mir_demo_client_tooltip I: mir_demo_client_eglsquare I: mir_demo_client_eglplasma I: mir_demo_client_eglstateswitcher I: mir_demo_client_target I: mir_demo_client_scroll I: mir_demo_client_cursors I: mir_demo_client_egltriangle I: mir_demo_client_egldiamond_render_surface I: mir_demo_client_display_config I: mir_demo_client_eglcounter I: mir_demo_client_touch_validator I: mir_demo_client_animated_cursor I: mir_demo_client_pointer_confinement I: mir_demo_client_input_shapes I: mir_demo_client_eglflash
So I guess best is to switch back to my VM? Is the failing tests something I could ignore for now?
I can make this slightly easier with a few handy env vars.
sudo ln -s /usr/local/lib/qt5/plugins/platforms/libqpa-mirserver.so /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/plugins/platforms/
Allows Qt to find the platform.
You can avoid this soft link by setting this env var instead:
So Let's make that easier to find too:
sudo ln -s /usr/local/lib/qt5/qml/Unity/ /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/qml/
Similarly, you can avoid the soft link again and point Qt directly to where those QML plugins live with:
Hope this helps

during the QtMir build with
make -j 6 all testI also had the fatal error described by @jonius :
[ 87%] Building CXX object tests/mirserver/ScreensModel/CMakeFiles/ScreensModelTest.dir/screensmodel_test.cpp.o In file included from /home/aurelio/qtmir/src/modules/Unity/Application/mirsurface.h:35:0, from /home/aurelio/qtmir/tests/modules/SurfaceManager/surface_manager_test.cpp:22: /home/aurelio/qtmir/src/modules/Unity/Application/mirbuffersgtexture.h:20:30: fatal error: miroil/mirbuffer.h: Not existing file or directory compilation terminated. tests/modules/SurfaceManager/CMakeFiles/surfacemanager_test.dir/build.make:62: instruction set for the target "tests/modules/SurfaceManager/CMakeFiles/surfacemanager_test.dir/surface_manager_test.cpp.o" failed make: *** [tests/modules/SurfaceManager/CMakeFiles/surfacemanager_test.dir/surface_manager_test.cpp.o] Error 1 CMakeFiles/Makefile2:2146: instruction set for the target "tests/modules/SurfaceManager/CMakeFiles/surfacemanager_test.dir/all" failed make: *** [tests/modules/SurfaceManager/CMakeFiles/surfacemanager_test.dir/all] Error 2 make: *** waiting incomplete process....
and after that

@jonius can you PR your fix? It looks to tidy up the cmake code too.

@alan_g does that mean no need for a PR from my side?

@jonius i tried again after the
git pullbut obtain the same error

Oh! so I totally misunderstood that command...reading the documentation seemed to me
git pullalready encompass a
git fetchand a
git merge. also I tried the git pull after the make command and that confirmed the local branch was up-to-date. ok, i will try again after the fetch. thank you.
@jonius next issue is a failing test (ApplicationManager), which fails here.
I had a look over the weekend. The test is failing in the branch I based this off, and I didn't see an obvious cause for it.
I probably need to find a better base branch for this work. I really find all these QtMir branches a mystery. Maybe the best one is one of those in the gitlab repo?
