Plasma-mobile

Need to modify the file /usr/bin/kwinwrapper

Add --framebuffer --fb-device /dev/fb0 to arguments of startplasma-wayland

Like this:

startplasma-wayland --framebuffer --fb-device /dev/fb0 --xwayland --libinput --inputmethod maliit-server --exit-with-session=/usr/lib/libexec/startplasma-waylandsession


This ensures that the plasma mobile is rendered using a frame buffer.
